    When you look at the requirements, they include stuff like:
    - NATO lighting for 61 vehicles
    - all fitted as FFR (does that mean 24v alternator?)
    - 100 with removable radio racking
    - Motorola wiring
    - NATO tow hitch

    Seems to be plenty of money for vehicles, planes and ships.

    Not so much for the operators of said equipment!.

    I wonder if, in 5 years or so, Land Rover will be back in the running?

    The only problem with G Wagen is we would still be using them in 20 years as they wouldn't be falling apart. Sure that wouldn't keep procurement and contracts clerics in a job...
