In Service Date: 20/10/2010. 2,620 kilometres unwarranted.
The Land Rover Defender Wolf was a long-time favourite vehicle for use in theatre or on domestic duties, as far as Her Majesty's Ministry of Defence Buyer were concerned. After a major re-fleeting of Land Rovers in the late '90s, different variants came to the fore in the attempt to accommodate war zones in unique global situations and the expanding types of warfare that the military were beginning to be faced with.
Certain situations called for a vehicle that would undertake reconnaissance or be the support for artillery platforms that needed to get close to enemy positions. The Wolf was considered to be agile and yet tough enough to fill this role, so the design needed to protect the soldiers would need to carry out this role. WMIK (Weapons Mounted Installation Kit) was to be one of the variants that would develop for this function and Land Rover hooked up with Ricardo Vehicle Engineering to produce them, with the RWMIK+ being a version of which is before you here – the R purportedly stands for Revised.
The original vehicle in service would have supported up to two machine guns of varying capabilities, as can be indicated from the remaining infrastructure, but we cannot be sure what was originally fitted to this particular model. What you have here, though, is an eye catching example of some of the most recent vehicles from the British Army. The condition report is well worth a look.
