Miscellaneous Info:
The Irish Army Ranger Wing (ARW) special forces unit, used approximately twelve (12) Special Reconnaissance Vehicles (SRV) from approximately 2004-2022 as their primary combat vehicle.  The SRV was a heavily modified Severe Off-Road Vehicle (SORV) which was based on a Ford F350 Super Duty XL pick-up truck. The vehicles were all left-hand-drive (LHD), and ordered from the US through Irish Ford dealers. The SORV had a number of upgrades to improve performance for military applications vs. Super Duty Ford.  The modifications to the SRV were performed by Ricardo Special Vehicles, Ltd., and included a Weapons Mount Installation Kit (WMIK) and upgraded chassis and suspension.  The SRV was recently replaced in use by the ARW by the Polaris MRZR Light Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle.
