'75 Land Rover SIII Air Portable Lightweight ... British Ministry of Defense surplus. "These Lightweight models were designed to be air-lifted by the Westland Wessex, however in order to avoid exceeding that helicopter’s 2500 lb. payload limit the truck’s roof, doors and windscreen had to be removed and shipped separately. In fact, at 2,650 pounds fully equipped, these trucks were actually slightly heavier than standard short-chassis models."
