RAPID RE­SPONSE

Land Rover Monthly - - Military -

The Air­borne Gun­ners of 7 Para­chute Reg­i­ment RHA made ex­ten­sive use of the One Tonne FC 101 to tow their 105 mm Light Guns un­til 1994, when they were re­placed on a two-for-one ba­sis by 4x4 Pinz­gauers. The photo, taken dur­ing Ex­er­cise Roar­ing Lion ’93, shows a stripped-down One Tonne plus trailer on a Medium Stressed Pal­let pre­pared for a para­chute drop. I once snapped one of these ve­hi­cles with a dozen Paras hang­ing on and a tonne of ammo in the back driv­ing off the drop zone tow­ing a 105 mm.
