The British Army Programmes Directorate has publicly announced the acquisition of an additional 44 LC200 Civilian Armoured Vehicles.
Andover, July 2023: Working closely alongside Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S), our [British Army Programmes Directorate’s] Rapid Acquisition Team is right on track to deliver an additional 44 Civilian Armoured Vehicles (CAV) to the Field Army to enhance their operational capabilities.
Capitalising on the unexpected availability of additional Toyota LC200s, the RAT has secured 44 additional platforms. These will allow military personnel across the globe to blend in with other road users by using a lower-profile vehicle, where discretion is key to mission success.
The team worked closely with DE&S to accelerate delivery to the Army, with the first vehicles expected to be handed over to the users by late-2023. In keeping with the Land Industrial Strategy, both suppliers – Jankel and Babcock – are British companies.
