Viking Squadron

As part of Commando Logistics Regiment, Viking Squadron are 3 Commando Brigade’s experts in Protected Mobility. Operating the formidable, highly mobile Viking All-Terrain Vehicle (Protected), they support the Lead Commando Group both on land and at sea.


Although the primary role of Viking is in Protected Mobility for the Marines it transports, it is also often used in battlefield reconnaissance, fire support and as a command platform. 

The Viking’s ability to swim allows the Brigade to deploy forces rapidly across the Area of Operations in support of the Commander’s plan.

Having proved itself in action during numerous tours of Helmand Province, Afghanistan, its main focus now is on amphibious assault, delivering Marines to the beaches and beyond.

Based at Stanley Barracks, Bovington Garrison in Dorset, the squadron comes under the command of the Commanding Officer of CLR RM.
