In January 2006, when the ADF's Iraq and Afghanistan deployments were in the news, one semi-load (3 vehicles) of an unknown supply contract for refurbished/reconfigured Perentie 4x4 110s were spotted being transported from the Adelaide contractor to delivery at the ADF's DNSDC Moorebank Stores. These vehicles are rather obviously for Special Forces, appearing for all the world to be a 4x4 version of the 6x6 LRPV. They were not new chassis. They were wearing late series ARNs. The engines fitted? That's not established, other being diesel of course. They were certainly more extensively equipped than the "Truck, Surveillance, Lightweight, Winch, MC2" already in service for a decade or so.
Update Jan 2007: Through the Defence Department's website we have identified these vehicles as Surveillance Reconnaissance Vehicles or SRV's.
Update: 2011: It was pointed out to REMLR that there are in fact 2 SRV models. The one pictured on this page is actually the SRV (SF), a more heavily armed version of the SRV.
