AEC » Matador ( model 853/O853 )

During the World War II the AEC company became one of the few manufacturers in the world which produced only all-wheel drive cabover military vehicles. The story of these trucks began in 1938 with adopting in army a 3-ton truck Matador (4x4) model 853. It was equipped with a 4-speed gearbox and 2-speed transfer gearbox, hydraulic brakes with pneumatic booster Lockheed, spring suspension and a winch with a pulling force of 7 ton-force. Later versions received pneumatic brakes. The model Matador O853 ("O" from the word Oil) was equipped with a 6-cylinder diesel engine A173 (7.6 liter, 95 hp) with the cylinder head Ricardo, and the model Matador 853 was equipped with an overhead 92 hp petrol engine. The vehicles had a weight of 7150 kg, 330 mm ground clearance and maximum speed 60 km/h. The trucks were mainly used as a tractor for a 5.5" machine gun. By the end of the War 8500 trucks were produced. Many of the remaining post-war trucks had a timber crane fitted and went to work in the woods. In 1952 the new series Militant came to replace Matador.

    Actually Matadors were used by the British Army until the late 60`s, they were used by the Royal Artillery`s Light Air Defence regiments to tow the 40mm L70 gun equipment, Each gun detachment had three Matadors to tow the L70 gun, the FCE7 fire control equipment and a Meadows 7kva diesel generator to power the L70 and fire control equipment.
