The Bedford QLB was a variation of the wartime Bedford QL designed as a Bofors Gun tractor, of which around 5,500 were produced during the years of manufacture. Bedford had been commissioned by the British Government to produce a 3-ton 4 x 4 general service truck specifically for military use in World War II. The GL was the result and production lasted from 1941 to 1945 with several variants designed for deployment across several fields of activity.Our third release on the QLB is as used by the Light Anti Aircraft Regiment, 12 Corps which was deployed in occupied Germany from mid 1945. The model is presented with an olive green body, wheels and chassis with olive green interior and black grey mudguards. The camouflage scheme to the exterior is black grey and dark green with white military markings. Note the white star, with and without circle which was used on Allied military vehicles after the Normandy Landings in 1944. Here you see it on the cab roof and on the body sides. Finally, enabling the QLB to tow the Bofors Gun, there is a substantial tow hook fixed to the rear bumper.
