In the 1980s and 90s the Australian Defence Force introduced a much-modified Land Rover 110 as the Defence Force's basic lightweight utility vehicle. The Regional Force Surveillance Vehicle (RFSV) versions of this vehicle are known as the "Truck, Surveillance, Lightweight, Winch, MC2" and the modified versions of the same vehicle are known as "Truck, Surveillance, Lightweight, W/Winch, W/Side stowage, W/Rear seat, MC2 - Land Rover 110 4x4 (RFSV)" respectively. These are specialist variants of the basic Australian Land Rover 110 Perentie.
Although never its official name, the Australian Defence Force Land Rover 110 is known among military vehicle enthusiasts as the "Perentie." They are almost universally considered to be the most capable Land Rover 110/Defender vehicles in the world. The "Perentie" was popularised around the world as Major Les Hiddins' vehicle in the hit TV series "Bush Tucker Man."
This handbook reproduces the Australian Army's Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Instructions for the "Regional Force Surveillance Vehicle" (RFSV) variant of the Land Rover 110 "Perentie." The RFSV was designed for long distance remote area work with the Australian Army's Regional Force Surveillance Units such as NORFORCE, the 51st Bn FNQR and the Pilbara Regiment. The resulting vehicle is the ultimate offroad overlanding Land Rover. The handbook's 157 pages comprise a complete electrical and mechanical repair handbook for the specialist parts and equipment fitted to the "Regional Force Surveillance Vehicle" models of the Perentie. The handbook is designed to complement and supplement the much larger handbook for the Perentie Cargo & General Service 4x4 base model.
Available for the first time in print, this Supplemental handbook for the Perentie RFSV is designed as a workshop reference manual. Don't rely upon loose paper printouts. This edition is purposefully a low cost option and it never goes out of print, so you can keep one copy with the vehicle and another in the workshop.
