LAND ROVER 101 FORWARD CONTROL
Like Jeep, Land Rover once built a forward-control vehicle, called the 101 FC. Unlike Jeep’s FC-150, though, it was never made available to the public. Instead, it was a vehicle created expressly for the British Army. The military apparently needed what it called a ‘gun tractor’; a vehicle that could tow a L118 field gun and carry 100kgs of ammunition. Development started in 1967, and production took place between 1972 and 1978. But, while production was relatively brief, the 101s that were built continued to do duty for a very long time. The remaining Land Rover FC vehicles were finally decommissioned in the late-1990s. The 101 FC was powered by a 3.5-litre Rover V8.
