The   Land   Rover   Perentie    is   a   nickname   for   the Land   Rover   110   produced   by   JRA   Limited   for   the Australian     Army,     and     part     manufactured     and assembled     in     Moorebank,     New     South     Wales, during   the   1980s   and   1990s.   There   were   two   build contracts.   The   first   was   in   1988   and   the   second build   quantity   occurred   in   1998.   The   Perentie   was based   on   the   Land   Rover   Defender   110,   and   was introduced   in   1987   to   replace   the   ageing   fleet   of Series    2A    and    3    Land    Rovers.    The    Land    Rover Perenties    were    produced    in    4    x    4    and    6    x    6 variants   and   powered   by   an   Isuzu   3.9-litre   four- cylinder   4BD1   diesel   engine   or   4BD1-T   turbo   and has     proven     itself     both     in     Australia     and     on operations   overseas,   including   in   Somalia,   Timor Leste, the Solomon Islands, Iraq and Afghanistan. The    major    differences    between    the    Land    Rover Perentie      and      British      Land      Rovers      are      the relocation   of   the   spare   wheel   to   a   position   under the   rear   of   the   load   area,   a   galvanised   chassis   and the   Isuzu   engine.   The   original   army   contract   called for   a   variety   of   unusual   features   including   being able   to   sustain   being   hung   from   a   helicopter   by one   corner   without   causing   the   chassis   to   distort. The   6   x   6   version   has   a   wider   cab   and   load   sharing leaf-sprung    rear    axles.    The    6    x    6    also    has    a turbocharger.   The   original   order   was   for   2,500   4   x 4   and   400   6   x   6   vehicles   between   1987   and   1990, while    further    vehicles    were    later    added    under Project Bushranger.

The   name   Perentie   originates   from   Land   Rover's   successful   tender   to   Project   Perentie,   which   was   the   official Australian   Army   trial   to   select   new   1   and   2-tonne   light   vehicles.   During   the   Project   Perentie   trials   the   Land Rover/Isuzu   110   and   6   x   6   variants   were   compared   against   the   Jeep   AM10,   the   Mercedes-Benz   300GD   and   the Unimog,   while   the   Toyota   Landcruiser   was   evaluated   two   years   later.   The   origins   of   the   name   comes   from   the Perentie ( Varanus giganteus ) lizard species, which is the largest goanna lizard native to Australia.
