Royal Marines Snow Mobile

Royal Marines with 3 Commando Brigade's Surveillance and Reconnaissance Squadron (SRS) drive snowmobiles (ski-doos) across the Asegarden exercise areas, Norway.

The snowmobiles shown here are based on Bombardier Lynx GLX 5900 FCE models. These vehicles are powered by an electric start 500cc Rotax engine which drives a single wide caterpillar track. A pair of skis are situated at the front which are used to steer the vehicles via a handlebar. The ski-doos have storage space in a rear basket and under the seat. They can also tow trailers loaded with more gear.

The MOD officially call these ski-doos 'Oversnow Reconnaissance Vehicle (ORV) centre track drive ski steer supacat snow scooter. They are modified for military use by Supacat Ltd of Devon.
