    If its a good car, why not. But I'm curious, do we import cars from India? I wasn't aware that we did.

    Isn't it Land Rover Defender ?

    Lol, land Rover is owned by Tata, I doubt that this rugged design was thought or even considered by Tata Engineers. Please do give due credits to original Land Rover Engineers for this marvel, not to any Tata Engineer.

    This was discussed long ago of PA having Land Rovers in it inventory and Tata acquiring Land Rover.

    So in a nut shell, PA using Land Rover Defender is no feather cap in Tata, since its a hall mark of Land Rover long before Tata acquired it.

    Its a SIGMA motors assembled Land Rover which was designed and produced by a British company before its sale to a british/?/indian individual?

    However that said no more defenders are being procured by the Army and the toyota land cruiser series remain the main vehicle for officers..

    which is why Pakistan Army along with the rest of the world stopped buying the land rovers. here in the united states, land rover used to be the soccer mom's suv of choice for the upper middle class american families but ever since tata took over, the quality has taken a nose dive...you don't many new land rovers on the road any more as once used to be before tata took over...

    The current Toyota Land Cruisers being used the PA are different from the ones being offered to the general population
    do they make them specifically for the Army?
    they are smaller (Army ones)

    Army modifies almost every vehicle they get. Army vehicles are best kept and best variant vehicles in pakistan.
