The Foden 8x4 Cargo Truck was one of a family of vehicles that were introduced into the British Army in the early 1970s. It was classified as a Low Mobility vehicle for travelling mainly on roads. They were used by the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) in Germany by the Mobile Civilian Transport Group which consisted of civilian Poles and Ukranians who worked for the British Army in Germany after WWII (they also drove the Antar tank transporters). The Fodens were also often seen in the UK as they were used by several TA units whose role was to re-supply the BAOR in time of war.
