British Wheeled Vehicle Production

The British made extensive use of wheeled vehicles during the Second World War and while the German army as well as many other armies where still reliant of horses for transportation, the British army was fully mechanised. The following statistics deal only with vehicles accepted by the War Office and Ministries such as the Ministry of Supply and Air Ministry, nor does it include vehicles imported from overseas.

Notice the large number tank transporters produced, most likely due to experience in the desert and the effective use of them by Germany. 

*A more detailed breakdown of each time will be available in the future.
