An Andersen Cub - but not as we know it

This is one Andersen Cub variant I'd never heard of: the Military version, named RTPV Cub, for Rough Terrain Patrol Vehicle. According to the leaflet testing by the British Army proved its strength, but I am not sure about any survivors. It would be nice to learn a bit more about it though...

Was Military RTPV Cub more then a Cub in disguise?

Said to be air portable and British Army tested - are there any RTPV survivors?

Wayne Morris' Andersen Cub was given the military theme, but is not an RTPV

  1. Nice link here to the New Zealand Navy Mokes. Saw one when one of the ships visited San Diego.
