RAF Harrier Force Unimog - Hard or Soft Top?

Hi, all, I'm trying to convert the CMK Unimog to an RAF one as used on the RAFG Harrier Force in the mid 1980s.  Does anyone know if the hard top Moggy was used on the HF sqns, or were they all soft tops?  I have a faint memory that the hard top ones were usually restricted to bomb dumps, but those brain cells are not very reliable.  I only have a few pics from 4 Sqn and they all show soft tops, which will need rather more work on the cab.

Thanks

Thanks, tweeky.  I suspect it may have been because the soft tops had better visibility with the top down.  I'll cut the cab down to a soft top, then.  

All the best

Thanks Selwyn.  I think I may still go with the soft top as I've photos that show the number plate from one on a site at Osnabruck in '85.  One of the rate occasions we "deployed" to an airfield.
