The Australian Defence Force is overhauling its fleet and selling its old stock, including iconic Unimogs, unique Land Rovers and classic Mack rigs.
Anyone can buy the ex-military machines, which still wear camouflage paint, at a series of auctions. Batches of military vehicles will be available for the next few years as the ADF changes over its stock, and the next round of auctions will be held in several states this month.
The vehicles are handled by Australian Frontline Machinery...

At its core, the Australian Frontline Machinery Pimped Perentie is an ex-military Land Rover 110 from the Australian Defence Force (ADF). The nickname ‘Perentie’ is a reference to ‘Project Perentie’, the tender project of the 1980s that saw the Land Rover 4×4 and 6×6 become the vehicle of choice for the ADF. It is one of over 2,000 Land Rover 4x4s that have been sold by Australian Frontline Machinery over the past 2 years, but it is now a Land Rover with a difference.
