"This vehicle has a similar chassis and body to FV13801/2 but is fitted with a horizontal spindle drum winch. The vehicle can accept a 3.5 tonne payload in this role. The winch is fitted with a 76m (250ft) rope which can be reeved to both the front or rear of the vehicle. A winch overload device is fitted to limit the maximum pull on the bottom layer of the drum to 8 tonne. Brackets for wheel scotches are fitted."

 Seating.   Wooden sets may be fitted to facilitate the carriage of personnel. They are arranged along the centreline of the cargo bed, the troops sitting outwards facing, in order to speed reaction in an ambush.

 Cupola   A Cupola is fitted to the cab roof allowing a soldier to be posted as an air sentry. No provision is made for weapons to be fitted to this position.

Cargo Area Cover   A series of hoops is provided to support the canvas tarpaulin cover for the cargo area. The height of the tarpaulin may be varied to two positions - the hoops are lowered to their low setting for air transportation. Stowage is provided for both tarpaulin and superstructure when not in use.
