   Development of the JRA (Jaguar Rover Australia) began in 1981 and following an Australian Army selection programme know as Project Perentie, 400 6x6 versions of the Land Rover 110 were ordered. Fitted with 3.9-litre Isuzu diesels and known as the JRA Land Rover 110 Heavy Duty 6x6, the first production examples were handed over in March 1989, production ended 1991.

   The 110 Heavy Duty is wider than the standard One Ten and is produced in several versions. The base model is a 2 tonne cargo vehicle, with or without a winch. In terms of size and payload capacity the Australian Land Rover with 6x6 configuration fits the gap between Jeep-style light utility vehicles and light trucks. This vehicle can carry up to 12 troops on inward-facing seats on a removable cargo/personnel carrier tray with a soft top. Once removed the tray can be replaced by various workshop modular bodies or bodies configured for carrying Rapier or RBS 70 air defense missile systems. The modular workshop bodies are fitted directly to the chassis frame and can be removed for use on the ground.

   There is also an ambulance body and a machine gun-carrying special long range patrol version for the Australian Army's SAS Regiment. Other variants available include a fire truck and a shelter transporter. An enlarged crew cab version was available.

   In all these versions the 110 Heavy Duty has a good cross country performance and is well able to absorb the rough knocks of the Australian terrain.

   The vehicle has been offered for export and a version with a General Motors 6.2-liter diesel engine and cold weather equipment was proposed for a possible Canadian Armed Forces application.

   In 2007 Mercedes-Benz won a contract to provide 1 200 G-class light utility vehicles to the Australian Defense Forces. Later this number was increased to 2 100 units, including a mix of 4x4 and 6x6 models in six different configurations. One of them was a Mercedes-Benz G-class with 6x6 configuration. Deliveries commenced in 2012. These new vehicles replaced the ageing fleet of Land Rover 110s, together with the JRA 6x6 models.
