Not normally, the only concession would be fitting studs when deploying to an arctic theatre. The standard fitment was goodyear G90 but some of the photos above are showing what looks like run flat Dunlops?

Nice photos John, thanks

I believe those are the metric XZL's, e.g., 265/75, 235/85, etc.

I prefer the weirdo XZL's with the single lug down the middle:

I'm not digging the bull bar spare tire mount.

I don't like the side mount very much, but it's preferable to the front.


they need to go back to the hood and ad pneumatic struts if need be.

Could they be mounting the spare on the bull bar to help protect the radiator?

That's my guess. I think all of the Defenders with the spare on the brushguard-mounted spares also have the window guards fitted. They sort of look like MP or trucks or constabulary trucks.

they are armoured up to small arms fire level, the spare mounted on the front could be to balance the weight but also to save cutting into the armour for a spare mount. These vehicles are the modern equivilent of the old series 3 grey Hotspurs from Northern Ireland.

Aaah. That sounds correct to me. Good to know.

Here's another one:




"Broadcaster Jeremy Clarkson was 'kidnapped' during a simulated hostage-taking scenario in Baghdad, during the run-up to the Referendum Vote to ratify the new Iraqi Constitution."


Check out how realistic their training is. They even bust out the Mk3 for the VIP sims.

That's pretty sweet.

The front ant on the MkIII looks to be the same as the front ant on the 110.

I took these shots in Florence this past spring. I didn't feel like being harassed by the police so I didn't get up close to check out what was going on with the hood.
