Some were used for a short period of time as an interim measure while new or replacement vehicles were awaited.  This was the case with the Ferret, Scania Vabis,Unimog and M113.  They were used in Cyprus and the Belgian Congo 
respectively in the service of the United Nations. 
The M113 was discovered in the 
Congo while the Irish troops were in transit and during the stopover the vehicle 
was the subject of a quick conversion course and temporary acquisition by the Irish.
