Armygeddon Probably Australia’s most famous Army Land Rover
« on: December 03, 2014, 10:51:41 PM »

Probably Australia’s most famous Army Land Rover.




Haven’t seen it mentioned in the registrar on REMLR but nonetheless it is/was a genuine army Land Rover owned and run by the Australian Defence Force.

I believe I have at least 4 videos of this going to summernats yearly, spending 30+ minutes 'revving' the crowd up before coming out onto the pad, blowing a (patrol) diff within 30 seconds and wandering off...

The airbrushing on the bonnet is perfect.

Some more photos for the records, thanks!  I don't actually have a vin for it either (and it's original arn).  not that there is much of the original chassis there.

In the youtube Philthy linked it shows 202-211 at 29 seconds

this arn, along with the one earlier, also doesnt show in the database?

many of the ARN's in the database for the perenties came from a paper copy of a microfiche document showing the perentie vehicles.  However it was created before the Bushranger builds, so bushranger vehicles (ARN 202+ normally) were not in the listing, so the first we know of many is when they come up for auction or we find a photo.

Thanks for the video, I will save that off for reference.  Looks like it was a UNAMSET vehicle (if that is the right abbreviation) from the stencil on the side.

A suggestion of another well known Army Land Rover is RAEMUS Rover from the 70's and 80's. We have refurbished the car and now race it as a challenge activity for Mates4Mates.

Photobucket decided to do a money grab and anyone who used their services to host photos and use them in other forums are being blackmailed to pay $400 a year to get them back.

There is a workaround though, and it seems to be working.

Go read craigb's post here for the fix. http://remlr.com/forum/index.php?topic=5268.0
