Mahindra Army Model

Notes: These are Indian versions of the old Willys Jeep of World War 2, progressively upgraded and modified over the years. Chief differences are in size and the engine, replacing the gasoline engine with a diesel engine. The Mahindra comes in three versions, the CL-540 and MM-540 differing primarily in body style (the MM-540 has an enclosed cab and doors in the sides of the cab, while the CL-540 is open, but may have a canvas cover, and has no doors). The MM-540 is used mainly for transport of officers and other staff personnel while the CL-540 is used as a weapons carrier and cargo/troop transport. Normal weapon mounted is a heavy machinegun or 106mm recoilless rifle. In addition to India, this vehicle is used by Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Iran.
