Description Land Rover Land Rover 1/2 Ton Lightweight
Another celebration of the versatile Land Rover comes with our 1/2 ton lightweight vehicle in 1:43 scale. Contained in this little model is a wealth of historical background, including its use by the United Nations in their peacekeeping role. It is decorated in an olive green drab scheme with slightly lighter canvas back with black trim and olive green interior. The United Nations logo and graphics in their signature pale blue and white are printed on both sides. The lettering UNFICYP indicates that the vehicle, with military registration plate 5412 FL 91, is part of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus. The presence was set up in 1964 under UN Security Council Resolution 186 to prevent a recurrence of fighting following intercommunal violence between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, to contribute to the maintenance and restoration of law and order and to facilitate a return to normal conditions. Initially UNFICYP consisted of military and civilian contingents from the Commonwealth and Scandinavia as well as the UK but over the years, the mix has changed with some countries dropping out to be replaced or added to by other national contingents.
