My Land Rover Defender Wolf 90, PD87AA. was delivered to the Ministry of Defence on 20th May, 1999. It left military service on 

It has the official military title of "Land Rover Defender Wolf SWB TUL HS GS Soft Top W & W", quite a mouthful! Let me break that down for you;

  • Land Rover Defender Wolf
  • SWB - Short Wheel Base
  • TUL - Tactical Utility Light
  • HS - High Specification
  • GS - General Support
  • Soft Top - As it says
  • W & W - Winterised & Waterproofed

The SWB and TUL bits of the title can be considered sort of synonymous as they both refer to the length of the vehicle. The longer Wolf 100 is known as the LWB TUM, standing for Long Wheel Base, Tactical Utility Medium. The HS designator signifies that the vehicle is a Wolf and that it is considerably stronger and improved over earlier models.The civilian version of the Wolf was given a different name by Land Rover, the Defender XD,  with the XD standing for Extra Duty.

Most of the Wolf 90s produced were soft topped General Support (GS) vehicles, however the final 50 into service were hard topped Fitted For Radio (FFR) vehicles.
