From the depths of the desert, where no one would expect an attack to come, arrives the Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) in their famous Chevrolet trucks, fully kitted out for fighting behind the enemy lines!

The LRDG vehicles were mainly two wheel drive, chosen because they were lighter and used less fuel than four wheel drive. They were stripped of all non-essentials, including doors, windscreens and roofs. They were fitted with a bigger radiator, a condenser system, built up leaf springs for the harsh terrain, wide, low pressure desert tyres, sand mats and channels, plus map containers and a sun compass devised by their commanding officer Major Ralph A. Bagnold.

By December 1940, the vehicle armaments were re-considered. 'T' Patrol, for example, had five .303 Vickers medium machine guns, five Lewis guns, four Boys anti-tank guns and the Bofors 37 mm. Another Vickers gun used was the heavy Vickers .50 machine gun, which would be mounted at the rear of the vehicle. All of the unit's vehicles were armed with at least one gun; each vehicle was fitted with six to eight gun mountings, but normally only two or three of them would be in use.

Truck comes with 3 crew with options to choose from 7 heads with our fantastic Figure Head System. It also has one of the crew in action firing his MMG and includes a map board, pintle mount and spare MMG.
