Cold War Tanks and Vehicles: UK

To get the thread started... a pair of British Army Land Rovers in Germany circa 1982.  The one in the rear is the classic Land Rover Defender, and the one in front is a more specialized design.  In front of them is a nondescript US Army minivan, of which I spent several bumpy rides in.  The Land Rovers have the classic black and green camouflage typical of the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR).

Nice picture! Looks like a command post or signal LR variation.

I will add I did not use the correct paint color, I used my favorite 1944 OD, instead of that nasty British Forrest green semi gloss ( yes, semi gloss was MoD correct)  and I left off the flat black disruptive stripes. Here is a better picture after I painted the wheel rims and touched up the turret hatch.image.jpeg.91b5225974b9d14d1a43979adf9c7937.jpeg
