Ford F30 4x4 30cwt Truck(LRDG) w/37mm Bofors Gun  
Although initially dismissed by GHQ, Maj. Baghold's paper of November 1939 proposing a long range recon. force operating deep inside Libya, when it came to the attention of General Wavell, who had started planning for war in the Middle East theatre in early 1939, it was given the green light. And although LRDG operations were delayed until the 26th of December 1940, six months after Italy's invasion of Egypt, due to further GHQ reticence, the LRDG would in fact operate, behind or on the enemy's flank, for all but 15 days until 10th. April 1943.
Men from British, Australian, New Zealand and other Commonwealth forces made up the ranks with the Guards and RTR along with the New Zealanders being the backbone.
Along with the iconic 30cwt Chevrolets, the Ford F30 4x4 30cwt made up the main body of patrol trucks, with 70 being purchased in March 1941. Although withdrawn in March 1942 with rthe arrival of 200 of the 4x2 30cwt Cheverolet's, major losses in September of 1942 lead to the re-isuue of the Fords, remaining in service until near the end of the Tunisian campaign in April 1943. Mainly armed with a an array of Machine Guns some vehicles had the Bofors ATG for additional capability. The model comes with optional weapons and stowage.
