ACV Dorchester is a large armoured command vehicle of British design. It was produced in 1941-1943. The vehicles quickly gained great popularity among the officers. Due to the spaciousness of the interior, they were called the Dorchester. This was the name of the famous London hotel. The Germans captured three such carts in North Africa and gave them the name Mamut. The functionality of the vehicle was appreciated by Erwin Rommel himself, using the vehicles during the operations in North Africa. The mobile staff equipped with communication equipment proved to be a valuable prey.
