Default Military Green JCBs

Sharing a few pics from JCB's official release via Linkedin on their new delivery to British Army (They havent mentioned the customer name on the Linkedin Page though, this is an assumption: please correct if I am wrong)

"JCB's Government and Defence Division have fulfilled an order for three JCB 4CX Backhoe Loaders decorated with the JCB Military Green paint job. These machines join the customer's fleet of current JCB machines including a number of Fastracs"

This was to an extend great news to me, and then when I went ahead and searched for the same on their company web, i found a detailed list of offerings from them and some of them are beastly.

http://www.jcb.co.uk/Products/Machin...-Products.aspx

On Wiki-page it says Fastrac was Jeremy Clarksons tractor of choice during the year it was launched.

Even Indian vendors are supplying to Army. Tata supplied 45 backhoe loaders to Indian Army more than a decade ago!

Yes I have seen many military green excavators from Indian Army in my home town Bhuj just after 2001 earth quack. These machines were transported to Bhuj airbase in cargo aircraft (most probably IL76s) along with other rescue and relief material.
