Cool video on the Brits landing at San Carlos. At 1:09, what is the tracked vehicle coming ashore loaded with British Commandos?

BARV, I believe.

From Wikipedia's BARV entry:

"The following year both BARVs would see service during the Falklands War, being the largest land vehicles ashore, with the BARV from Fearless breaking its drivetrain whilst working Blue Beach."

Itís a Centurion BARV, standard kit on HMS Fearless and Intrepid. At least one of those sent ashore had an interesting camouflage scheme of black and red brown stripes applied, although itís hard to hide something like that in a treeless environment.
