Request for History and Parts Catalogue for Land Rover Tithonus

The request was successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I recently acquired an ex-MOD Land Rover which was updated under the Life Extension Program, Project Tithonus.

I have already ascertained the vehicle's operation history from a copy of the MERLIN database posted as the reply to another FOI request. However, despite searching quite extensively, I cannot find exactly what Project Tithonus involved (by way of modifications to the vehicles) nor of a parts catalogue (or addendum to that for the standard Land Rover 110 vehicles).

I should therefore like to request:

1) A copy of the contract specification for Project Tithonus which details physical changes to, or maintenance of, the vehicles and
2) A copy of the parts catalogue for these vehicles (including paint or other protective coating specifications or NSNs).

This will be of great help to me to maintain the vehicle in the future.

The Army registration was 38KL56.

The VIN is SALLDHAC7LA939360

Many thanks for your time,

Yours faithfully,

OldAirman

Dear DES SEC-PolSec LE-JSC-WPNS (MULTIUSER),

Hi Folks,

Many thanks - you said 'it would be possible to supply a list from the Contract Requirement Form which
details the information you requested' - that would be champion.

As for the parts - I'm pretty sure the standard 110 parts catalogue (which I've found on line) takes care of most things - the part I'm primarily interested in is the back cover and roll cage - I think they're identical to the Wolf, but not sure. The other thing is he paint colour code - it's listed in the Wolf catalogue, so I hope the same is true of the one which covers the Tithonus (no one who supplies paint for ex-mod vehicles are confident of which paint it should have - at present it seems to have, based on the whim of a previous operator and fading with age, about three different colours.
Many thanks for your time,

Kindest Regards (leaving the salutation and sig block from the website, as it seems to be unhappy if I delete them)

Yours sincerely,

OldAirman

Dear DES SEC-PolSec LE-JSC-WPNS (MULTIUSER),

Many thanks - I don't believe you could have been more helpful - this is exactly the detail I was looking for!

As for the paint - thanks - I'm pretty sure it's 'Nato Green IRR, as that's what's what's specified in the WOLF parts catalogue and, from the limited research I've don, appears to have been current before that, by several years.

One last question and I promise I'll leave you alone - is it O.K. to post this detail on some of the Land Rover forums - I'm sure their are other Tithonus owners who would love to have this info,

Many thanks once again,

Yours sincerely,

OldAirman
