3 views of a Mercedes Benz 300T Quick Response Unit ambulance. This type of vehicle is rarely used to transport patients but is used to get paramedics to injured people faster than a road ambulance. They carry as much equipment as possible but still far less than a regular ambulance [model].

Here it is again a couple of months later as a command unit at York (horse) racecourse.

The oversize red cross on the side is supposed to tell the enemy not to bomb them as they are carrying out humanitarian work.
