The British unveil a vehicle called the Stalwart that can navigate the toughest terrain as well as move in water. The vehicle is a huge six wheel drive military transport with individually sprung drive wheels to give it traction in all situations. It is for military or farm use. The vehicle is shown moving on varied terrain areas with ease. It moves in deep water operating like a partially submerged boat and then boards a ship at sea by floating up to its opened ramp and driving up onto the ship.

Each engine has an independent gear lever. Driver is shown engaging 2nd gear lever to use additional engine in helping it move in the snow.
