Inspired by recent posts about WW2-era British armoured cars, I was wondering why we have stopped using them. Let's see, after WW2 we made the Ferret (an updated Daimler Armoured Car / Dingo) which was a very good vehicle and served for a long time with a number of armies. We also made the Saracen & Saladin rmoured car / APC family, which was good but did not serve for very long (in comparison). And then you have bvehicles like the Humber 'Pig' - used as 'Battle Taxis' and latterly as Patrol vehicles in Northern Ireland. But after the 1950s, we did not build any new Armoured cars (unless you count the Fox, an improved Ferret that was never very successful) So why?
