LRDG patrols tended to arm their trucks with everything they could lay their hands on, armament including anything from infantry weapons to scavenged aircraft machine guns. The following is not a complete list of all weapons ever found on patrol trucks, it rather lists the weapons most commonly used by LRDG.
Trucks' bodies were equipped with six to eight pivots which could be used as gun mountings; larger weapons like the Browning .50cal  (and sometimes the Boyse rifle) were mounted on a pivot bolted to the floor of the body.
