British armoured scout car. Ferret was developed by the Daimler company in 1949, production began in 1952 and continued until 1971, during which time some 4500 were built. As well as being used by the British Army, they have been adopted by 36 other countries.
The Ferret is basically a four-wheeled car with an all-welded steel body. The driver sits in the front of the hull, the center is the commander's compartment, and the engine and transmission are at the rear. Used in every internal security campaign from Malaysia through Aden and Cyprus to Ulster, it is a fast and handy vehicle and one of the few AFV's that is politically acceptable to use on the streets.
