Hi!

What is a "Land Rover"? I understand it's a kind of vehicle, but I don´t know wich one. The text says:

Back in the 1960s parascending was developed partly as a training method for would-be parachutists. Rather than spending a lot of time and money raising parachutists into the air using an aeroplane, they were attached to a tow rope and hauled into the air using a winch or a vehicle such as a Land Rover.

Is it a ship, a car, or what? Is there a word in Spanish for that kind of vehicle?

Thanks a lot!

    Estaba mirando un reportaje español y el narrador dijo Land Rover (sin traducción).
    En España son bien conocidos porque hace años se fabricaban en España bajo licencia (pero ahora no).
    Además son los típicos vehículos de safari en África, han salido en muchas películas.

    Ups! Excuse my ignorance, but thanks for your help. I'll translate it like "todoterreno" for eliminating brands.

    Thank you very much!
