A historically very valuable and highly rare LAND ROVER. The TAC-T is 1 of ever 15 built Royal Air Force flying field fire fighting vehicles. TAC-T stands for Truck, Aircraft Crash - Tactical. Designed to protect the jet vertical take-off aircraft "Harrier" also away from paved runways. This especially example offered here is, according to insiders, the only complete, correct and roadworthy TAC-T in the world. It is currently registered to the owner in the UK with official V5C papers. It left the Solihull factory on 03 October 1967 and was delivered to the Central Army Vehicle Depot in Feltham, UK on 01 November 1967. The Heritage Certificate is available and proves this. The TAC-T concept was developed as a "6x6" vehicle with a PTO driven trailer with an additional water tank. These 15 TAC-T Land Rovers were in service with the Royal Air Force until the mid-1980s and were subsequently auctioned off, as was usual with vehicles in government and army service. The lucky buyer was Mr. Gordon Smith, UK and kept the rare vehicle in his collection until finally Mr. Paul Hazell acquired the TAC-T from Smith in 2010 and carried out a "frame-off restoration" himself. Upon completion, he sold the TAC-T to a good friend, current owner and great Land Rover collector and expert. An extensive and very detailed technical listing and drawings are additionally available with very nice historic photos. With countless original details, its incredible rarity and in roadworthy condition, this LAND ROVER is a great opportunity for LAND ROVER / Fire / Army and Airfield vehicle collectors.
