    The Loyd Carrier was designed by Vivian Loyd and was based on a 15cwt Fordson 7V military truck with Vickers designed suspension and track. It was an unarmoured and unarmed carrier that was intended primarily as an artillery tractor. It was tested in 1939 and put into production soon after, though it was not seen in large numbers until 1943. Powered by an 85 bhp Ford engine it had a top speed of 48 km/h and range of 220 kilometers. The 6 Pdr A/tk Gun tractor was fitted with 7mm applique armour bolted to the front and hull sides. It could carry five men as well as ammunition and tools. It was preferred as a tractor over the Universal Carrier because of its larger size and ability to carry more ammunition, the weight un-armoured was 4.5 tons. Over 26,000 were built in WWII with two versions, the MkI with Bendix brakes and the MkII with Girling. It was also used as APC cable layer and slave, with extra batteries to start tank engines. Used by British, Polish, Dutch and Czech armies in WWII, replaced by Windsor and Oxford Carriers.
