In the early 1960s both the Royal Marines, then largely based aboard commando carriers, and the British Army required a vehicle that could be carried by air. The smallest Land Rover available at the time was a Series IIA 88 inch (2235 mm) wheelbase, which was too heavy. Land Rover began work on a lightweight version to fit the specifications in 1965.
A total of 37,897 Lightweights, petrols and diesels, were built. Over 20 countries besides the British Army operated using these Land Rovers.
