Alvis Salamander

The Alvis Salamander is a six-wheel drive airport crash tender with off-road capabilities, developed in 1956. This one was on display at RAF London.

It shares the same common Alvis six-wheel-drive chassis and other components with the FV 601 Saladin armoured car and FV 603 Saracen armoured personnel carrier. In turn it led to the FV 620 Stalwart load carrier which was derived from the Salamander.
