Yet another model that's been sitting "on the shelf"!
You'll ride around is style in your new 4x4 Jeep...It has more power for climbing those tough hills!
Armament: 0.50 cal Browning A.A. MG Twin 0.303 Vickers light Machine Guns (co-driver) And before you say it...the mod adds about 1000 new polys ;)
And no...those aren't petrol cans...think of them as water cans. (They would have removed petrol cans BEFORE going in to battle!)
Was there something like that for real? :uhm: :confused: :uhoh:
of course there was something like that...... jeez.... :rolleyes:
How could you doubt the FH team?.........All you had to do was and you could of answered your own question.
*I've been driving all night, my hand wet on the weel* :rock:
Very nice! :mepimp:
Something tells me the SAS jeep is not a good car to pick up chicks with....
Why'd they cut the grill thingy like that?
really not bad...
can you send it to me until sunday night for the next update ?
The jeeps were stripped of all non-essential parts including the windscreen, most of the radiator grille bars and even sometimes the front bumper to increase the effective load carrying capacity of the vehicle. Thus the large amount of fuel and water needed for fast long-range raids could be carried avoiding the need for slower support vehicles. A water condensing unit was fitted to the front to reduce loss from the radiator which would otherwise have had to be topped up from the limited drinking water supplies. The jeeps also carried sand mats, metal wheel channels, radio equipment and large quantities of ammunition.
also just an FYI (how effect where these?):
The jeeps were heavily armed with combinations of both Browning and Vickers K machine guns.
The ex-aircraft Vickers weapons were generally mounted in pairs and a total of up to five machine guns were carried on some vehicles. The effectiveness of this armament firing a mix of ball, armour-piercing and tracer shells can be judged from one assault on an airfield where 12 aircraft were destroyed in a five minute raid. With all guns blazing a single SAS jeep could deliver an impressive 5000 rounds per minute! The net result was that over 400 aircraft had been destroyed on the ground by November 1942
