1990 Land Rover 90”106mm Recoilless Rifle Gunship
Chassis number: SALLDVAF8HA465579
Registration number: 5460 XZ
Engine type: 2.5 200 TDi
Gearbox type: 5 Speed
This vehicle was originally a 90” build under licence by Otokar in Turkey. It was sent to Marshalls of Cambridge for conversion to a 106mm Recoilless Rifle Gunship for Land Rover. This weapon was a US design dating from the 1960s and still in use worldwide. It is a Bazooka-like tube which is almost as long as the vehicle.
The vehicle was demonstrated around the world and even went as far as Peru. It ended up having an accident, was rebuilt and sold in Wales in 1997.
We are trying to locate a deactivated 106mm Recoilless Rifle for the vehicle but they are very rare in the UK and those available elsewhere are very expensive.
