wierd! what was it modified for?

Added by Roger Greenaway on 02 September 2009.
Some roof rack.
I cannot think what use it would serve on a military vehicle.
Not for people to stand on as there doesn't seem to be any provision for a handrail.

I suspect that it an air force evacuation/rescue vehicle

It looks purely a cargo holding rack. Seen on many expedition Land Rover and Bedfords. I doubt it is a forward supply vehicle, it is too vulnerable. However as a rear echelon supply truck it might have increased carrying capacity over the production vehicle.

Roger & John,
Thank you for your comments, such roof racks on military logistic vehicles are very unusual.
In my view increasing the carrying capacity in such a way is not very practical as getting boxes or other items on and off from that height would be problematic, apart from the stability problems that would ensue if it was carrying too much.
I would be inclined to agree with Roger on its likely function.
Thanks again guys.
