Selous Scouts 4.5 MAP TCV

Standard

Here are photos of the Selous Scouts version of the 4.5 MAP TCV.

Many of these photos are from Op Miracle so you can see the diversity of vehicles used, but the Selous Scouts were using more and more 4.5 MAPs for better protection.

These are mainly photos from Op Miracle 1979, and as you can see the mobile column was quite large. The variety of vehicles are quite staggering as well. 2.5, Pigs, Crocodile, 4.5 MAP, 7.5 MAP, also Puma with Eland 90s,. Also the artillery were towed in by 7.5 MAP. There were also scorpion mortar carriers involved and it has been mentioned Eland 60s. The photos with the building is Madisson Square where they must have reorged after the operation on the return to Rhodesia. There are photos in another book where the RLI are using Puma as well. Will try and get my head around all this one day, as I do not believe there has been a complete description of the column done yet. Units involved Selous Scouts, RLI, RhACR, RhA,
