Although the Land Rover is thought of as one of the most versatile vehicles in use by the British Military, it never served in WWII. A batch was delivered to the British Army in 1949 & after thorough testing was found to be an ideal platform for many military uses.

A more rugged, similar type of vehicle, the Austin Champ, was also introduced at around the same time but this was only around five years owing to the continuing success of the Land Rover.

British WW2 Military Vehicles

There are many different types of military ground vehicles designed for specific uses in various arenas of conflict, such as tanks and self propelled guns, but here we are focusing mainly on British World War II utility, recon & personnel vehicles which carry limited or no weaponry.

Universal Carrier / Bren Gun Carrier

This vehicle was used widely by all British military forces during WWII. Universal Carriers were generally used for transporting troops and equipment, or as a weapon platform. With around 113,000 built by 1960 in the United Kingdom and abroad, it is the most produced armored fighting vehicle in history.

Daimler 'Dingo' Scout Car

The first prototype was built in 1939 and was to become the Daimler Scout Car, but was also known as the Dingo after a design by Alvis. It was a compact two-man armoured car initially with four wheel steering which inexperienced drivers found difficult. This was replaced to two wheel steering on later models.

The Mk.I was armed with one 15 mm and one 7.92 mm calibre Besa machine guns. It had a three man crew: driver, gunner & commander. About 300 units were built.

From 1940 to 1944 over 2,200 were built.

Rolls Royce Armored Car

Although this vehicle was originally produced for service in the First World War, the remaining 76 were subsequently pressed into service in the Western Desert at the beginning of WWII. By 1942 there were much more modern & effective vehicles available & the Rolls Royce was then dropped from service.

Morris C8 Field Artillery Tractor

The Morris C8 was a popular vehicle although really too small for all the equipment that was carried. It was also underpowered when towing and loaded. Moving 9 tons with a 70 bhp engine was difficult, especially going uphill. Constant use had to be made of the winch on hills and on muddy roads.
