Freedonian Armed Forces Enter the Mechanical Age

Not to be outdone by anyone, the Freedonian Army reports it has taken delivery of a major technological upgrade in the form of a Rolls Royce Motor Car.  This vehicle is capable of speeds in excess of 30 miles per hour!  Amazing!  Freedonian Scientists are said to be developing special breathing apparatus to allow the occupants to survive at such astonishing speeds.  In the meantime, in the interests of Safety and Heath, this mechanical wonder will limit its velocity to a sane speed of around 5 miles per hour.
The new vehicle was shown off at a recent military review in the capital, where it was escorted on ceremonial duties by the Presidential Guard Regiment.

It is anticipated that the new vehicle will be involved in vital headquarters and command duties when on campaign, including transporting VIPs and senior officers rapidly to key locations somewhere probably quite near the front.
Mr Aloysius Parker, expert Driver
Until technical specialists can be recruited and trained from within Freedonia, the Motor Car will be controlled by a Driver sent over from England, a Mr Parker.  Mr Parker was reluctant to talk about his past life, but apparently he has royal connections, as he mentioned something about staying with the English Royal Family - "at Her Majesty's Pleasure" - with such an experienced and prestigious Driver, Freedonia's reputation can only get better!
