The new generation SUMB
Recently released from the French army, these SUMBS have great end of life cycle potential.
The Sumb 4x4 - made by Simca Unic Marmon
and Boquet has been for many years the mainstay of the French army
and over the last 10 years many have been sold off, to both enthusiasts
and commercial operators who found the off road capabilities of
these portal axled rugged workhorses ideal for many applications
– as long as they were within easy reach of petrol stations
to feed the thirsty V8 petrol engines. There wasn’t an easy
to change and readily available diesel engine to offer an upgraded
version to the civilian market.
