Good find digger. With all that fishing net laid out to dry they haven't really got shoot n scoot in mind have they? Perhaps its just a set up for PR pics.

I see the windscreen is still on and not covered properly either. I definitely think its just for PR.

 I was under the impression that the British series military landrovers had a double bumper set up on them.

Glen,
The British Army procured some Land Rovers which were basically a civilian pattern, and coded as 'CL', these did not have military pattern lights or double bumpers. They would be used by admin, transport, etc. I would say this Land Rover has been used for a publicity shot of some kind.

Is the 106RCL actually in the back of the L/Rover or on the ground behind it?  Drawing the line of the closed tailgate seems to indicate it is not inside the vehicle - or is my eyesight letting me down?

And as the Australians found out, firing from a conventional L/Rover causes substantial panel damage at certain angles.

Agree with PR shot.
