101 Forward Control

The Land Rover 101 Forward Control was designed and created for military purposes, mainly for the British Army. They only released 2,669 of them from 1975 to 1978. A lot of these vehicles were taken abroad and were not released to the public.

Land Rover called this vehicle the 101 Forward Control because of its wheelbase being 101 inches wide. It is a constant four-wheel drive that can tow up to two tonnes. The reason being, this vehicle was designed to be used to tow a field gun with the required ammunition that the army would need.

Not only was the 101 Forward Control used by the army, they redesigned and built the vehicle with a hard top, which meant it could be used in the ambulance service as well as being used by the RAF.
