Description

This Tamiya 1/35 SAS Land Rover Pink Panther is highly detailed and includes numerous accessories.

Up to the early 1960's the Jeep remained the principal vehicle of the SAS, since then the ubiquitous Land Rover has been employed. Since 1970 the SAS has used a more refined conversion of the long wheel base Mk II, as depicted in this kit. This version lacks windscreen and side doors, but carries mounts for two general purpose machine guns.

Normal crew is three: driver, commander (and front gunner), radio operator (and rear gunner). Sometimes a fourth man is carried.

3 smoke candle dischargers are mounted at each corner of the vehicle and special equipment includes a spotlight , pioneer tools, stowage lockers, and a rear tailboard extension which is used to carry stores: sand channels are another item, but other equipment, such as a radio set, is fitted depending on operational requirements. With extra fuel tanks the vehicle has a road range of 1,100 miles and weighs 3 tons fully stored and equipped. while the Land Rover is the standard patrol vehicle, SAS Units may employ other vehicles as conditions demand. In desert operations the SAS Rovers are painted to suit the terrain, a sand-pink, which has led to the nickname "Pink Panther" being applied on occasion.
