Real Pinzgauer

I recently got to see and photograph this Pinzgauer which is also called a Styer Puch. It was being driven off road and performing well. It looks like an ex-military vehicle. It has been re-registered on 1979-80 plates. It also has non-standard Mach5 wheels which I would like to have for my Tomcat.

Styer Puch also make a Pinzgauer with 6 wheels. This means it can carry a bigger load, but this is not important for a slot car.

They can still get stuck and need to be rescued by a Land rover. The longer wheelbase is also better as a camper van.

Here are some more Pinzgauers on the Automotive Technik Ltd stand at a trade exhibition. They are highlighting the fact the British Army has just selected the Pinzgauer 6x6 as the ASTOR Support Vehicle and a de-rated Pinzgauer 4x4 as the next TUM FFR.

Here are some Pinzgauers already in service with the British Army as gun tractors (TUM/HD), but used here as ceremonial vehicles. They are towing 105mm light guns (L118) as used by British airbourne forces.
