    Default Land Rover CAV100 Snatch - pictures in service.

    Hi Everyone,

    This is my first post and hopefully people can help.
    I'm an Ex Royal Engineer that has had the crazy idea of buying a CAV100 as a toy. It's currently undergoing a full rebuild.

    Thing is, I'm keen to find a picture of my vehicle in service, or others in service in Op Telic.

    Does anyone have pictures hidden away that they wouldn't mind sharing that feature CAV100 Snatch LR's?

    Cheers everyone. I look forward to your responses.

    Paul

    I sense a lot of incoming 'riding the snatch' jokes.

    Have you tried arrse mate?*
    You may at least find some blokes who were in the same unit as that vehicle was used, and may have phots with a common fit etc..
    You'll be very hard pressed to find a specific vehicle here.

    *(cue foreign members thinking "wtf...?!!")

    Had to Google CAV100, it was always VPK or Snatch to me. Only ever used them in the Balkans and they were PITA there too, except in Sarajevo where the armour came in handy.

    I was in Iraq, 2003 when about 50ish were off loaded from the "Dart." Delivered direct from N.I.

    All nice and green they were, too. Confidential number signage was painted over with a bit of 'slap and dash.'

    All the bad press they've had is a bit unfair as they were being used for a role they weren't designed for but if you were patrolling around MND.SE (Basra) they would've been awesome compared to the soft top landys we were using. Most of them were still in a hangar by the time I returned home. Then they were loaded back on a ship and sent to Turkey to be mod'd as "Snatch 2"
