Thornycrofts had a long history of supplying military vehicles going back to the Boer War when their steam vehicles were described by General Kitchener as "The Best". The J Type was built in large numbers during WWI. The A1/A2 was introduced in 1924. The A3 was developed from the A2 and had a double drive rear bogie and auxiliary gearbox. The Thornycroft patented rear suspension developed in collaboration with the War Department, provided optimum traction at all times. The A3 was produced in a range of body styles and for a variety of applications. The Tartar was developed from the A3 as a fc 6X4 for general service and also in a bonneted version which was used as a gun tractor see group 6.The A3 was upgraded as the A9 with a larger engine the OC4 . The A9 was further developed as the XB, mainly for South Africa, with longer wheelbase and heavier axles and a range of engine options. This became the Amazon which was used extensively in WWII as a crane chassis.
