Miscellaneous Info: The Springer series of vehicles is a modified version of the TomCar TM5 ATV.  The Springer 1 is currently in service with British Defence forces, whereas the Springer 2 is an improved prototype vehicle only (at the time of writing).  The easiest way to tell the diference between the Springer 1 and 2 is that the Mark 2 has larger diameter wheels, which also results in higher ground clearance. 

There is also a Light Strike Version available (but not in service?) called the Terrier, mounting an M2HB .50 cal HMG and GPMG (and probably other weapons also)
