Speaking of The Disease seriously, forget Pakistan, they are all army trash Series IIIs, same with Egypt and Sudan. Iraq only has armored Sankey riot control vehicles and a few 130 Ambulances ... I looked for 3 years and only saw one 110 and a series II in private hands. And our pals in Afghanistan? If they are not UK/Turkish Army Snatches, Ranger RSOVs or the Czech WMIKs... they are all Humanitarian agency TD5s and Pumas from Tax-free Fleet Sales out of Gibraltar. Unimportable, every one.
For the adventurous importer the Uber cheap LHD LR heaven is LIBYA ... no, really, besides heaps of Series IIIs, 83-88s 110s and 90s are EVERYWHERE!! Its the biggest secret in the LR world. I am writing an article for LR Monthly about Libyan Rovers of the Revolution.
$500 you can get a S3 109 or 1983 110 stage 1. $1,500-2,000 bucks cash USD can get you a beatup but, low rust great LHD 1988 110 Hicap pickup, 105mm recoiless rifle not included, but you have to get it to Malta or Tunesia with proper "export" documentation ($500) your ownself. LR parts out the yang ... if I can find clean 110 dashboards you will all stop laughing!!
