2009 Pinzgauer TUM HD 6X6 Vector PPV
In Service Date: 31/12/2007. 875 kilometres unwarranted.
The ultimate in off-road ability, the Pinzgauer was introduced to HM Ministry of Defence's fleet as a supplement and sometime successor to the Land Rover Defender Wolf. The Royal Artillery reportedly took on the units as a gun tractor and the Vector model was deployed from around 2007. Some variants were used as troop carriers, ambulances, command vehicles and towing vehicles.
The 6×6 Vector Protected Patrol Vehicle (PPV) was described to the market by the manufacturer as having the capability to "Build on the existing proven design, with enhancements that will include a combination of physical protection, as well as the use of sophisticated electronic counter measures to maximise survivability while on patrol."
In the civilian world, the Pinz has been mainly sold to equatorial regions, for use in tourism. Some have been converted to campers, some ambulances, some farm or fire trucks. Oil exploration companies have owned some and, for pleasure, models have been seen on the Paris-Dakar Rally and other light hearted cross country races.
Overseas theatres were not suited to the PPV running gear, so some have seen little action, as is possible with this vehicle. The odometer shows a just over 800 kilometres and, though this is not warranted by the Ministry, the vehicle looks like it has been enjoying a temperate retirement in storage for some while. The photographs on this page speak for themselves.
