The DAF GS (more accurately the Leyland DAF GS) was supplied to the UK military from 1990 until they were retired in 2014 – although there are still some in operation today.
The 4×4 truck is usually configured as a dropside – for carrying loads as well as personnel. Often configured with a crew cab, the trucks shared much of their underpinnings with the DAF 45 series (later becoming the LF45 series).
Often referred to as the 4-tonne truck, the GS stands for General Service the replacements were the much larger MAN HX60 trucks.
There are relatively few of these trucks remaining in the UK truck market, but the ones available are usually in good condition. They tend to head overseas to export markets or may get converted for use in the UK – but probably not for road use.
