The book includes: the Desert Patrol Vehicle (DPV) first used during the Gulf War of 1991 by the US Navy SEALs; the ACMAT VT4 cross-country tactical military vehicle deployed by the French Foreign Legion throughout the world; the heavily armed Interim Fast Attack Vehicle (IFAV) beloved of the US Marines' recon units; and the Kawasaki KLR 250-D8 high-performance motorcycle, air-dropped to provide light reconnaissance capabilities for US Rangers in Afghanistan. Illustrated with 100 photographs, Special Forces Land Vehicles is a dynamic guide to both the standard and specialist vehicles deployed by Special Forces soldiers over the last 20 years.
