The Landrover the Army made to get peoples attention to join the army.

Annoying video with the two interwoven vids. (No idea if the whole clip is like that, i got bored after 20 seconds)

I like the idea of a supercharged 6x6 LR, but lose the shitty chrome wheels.
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical

I was part of team Army last year and have worked on Armageddon a fair bit, She is still getting around but has been retired from burnout which have been taken over by Project Digger. We still use Armageddon for the grass events at Sumernats.
It used to be able to select any combo of wheels to do a burnout so was a real 6x6 but now days is just the 4 rear wheels (it was a very complex setup which I know nothing about)
Now in an 80 series Cruiser
