Defence vehicles are not just limited to trucks and tanks. They cover a plethora of different vehicle types. While major of them serve the purpose of warfare, most of them are utilised as auxiliary vehicles to complement the bigger picture. These are utilised to carry armoury, troops, secret messages, ration stocks or whatever is of paramount importance.
