SAS Jeep (N. Africa)

The SAS should not be confused with the earlier formed LRDG who initially acted as the transport for these commandos. However following the addition of a section of Free French paratroopers in 1942, the 130 strong SAS became independent and with their 20 Bedford OY trucks and 16 Jeeps, they developed their "hit and run" tactics against German and Italian airfields, etc., in Egypt, Lybia and Tunisia....

The SAS should not be confused with the earlier formed LRDG who initially acted as the transport for these commandos. However following the addition of a section of Free French paratroopers in 1942, the 130 strong SAS became independent and with their 20 Bedford OY trucks and 16 Jeeps, they developed their "hit and run" tactics against German and Italian airfields and other targets in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. At the end of 1942 the SAS gained Regimental status and was increased in strength by receiving the remains of Middle East Commando and the Greek Sacred Squadron and although they lost the Free French paras, their compliment rose to 800 men. In 1943 the 2nd. SAS Regiment arrived in Tunisia to carry out strategic raids on Sicily and the Italian coast and following D-Day they used their expertise throughout NW Europe. (see UK076) As can be seen below our model accurately reflects the array of weapons carried on these vehicles and included in the kit are both single and twin Vickers K guns and an Air-Cooled .50cal Browning MG as well as additional magazines and ammunition boxes. In addition, there is a mixture of captured "Jerrycans"," Americans" and British "Flimsies" all available from our Accessory Range. Also see FIG072 SAS Drivers.
