I believe this vehicle is an airportable AEC Mercury with refulling equipment made by Zwicky Ltd of Slough.
It is listed in the 1971 edition of the MVEE catalogue of British Military vehicles with the following description: FV12381 Truck, Tanker, Fuel, (Servicing Aircraft(2200 gallons) Airportable AEC Mercury 4x2).
The text also states that vehicle was designed to be airportable in an Argosy transport aircraft therefore the cab top and steering wheel are removable to facilitate entry into the aircraft.
Hope this is useful information to any readers.
