French Text

The VLR has a great number of advantages, some of which are: it can transport personnel and equipment, possesses the ability to easily turn back on the road and travel in double columns, and has the possibility of being armed with a light machine gun on a pivot. These characteristics were what the French army hoped would make the VLR an alternative to the American jeep after the end of the Second World War. Delahaye, a family company known for its luxury cars and fire trucks, would meet the challenge. Patrick Wagner tells you here the story of three decades of what is much more than "the French jeep." A great chapter illustrates photos and drawings of all the component parts of the vehicle.
