The pictures are really starting to pour in now. Just yesterday we posted an article regarding set construction at Kualoa which featured some sort of large container or architecture.
Today, we are going back to Slough in the U.K. to discuss the latest round of set pictures courtesy of super sleuths sickkgirl_, RaptorChaser17 and emmaaugier on Twitter. Before continuing, we should note that the following pictures may contain spoilers.
The pictures show two different types of heavy-duty trucks; one appears to be a sort of personnel transport and the other seems to be a transport truck carrying a cage. The first truck looks similar to what you would see militaries using to carry armed personnel. Thanks to Baptiste C. Reviews, we now know that the truck in question is most likely a modified Volvo N10. According to the military-today, the N10 is described as being effective for military operations due to the truck’s design and specifications.

With that knowledge, we can speculate as to what role the vehicle will play in the movie. We know that the film will be set on Isla Nublar for an unknown amount of time. It can be assumed that there will be team or teams in addition to Owen and Claire when they return to the island.
The N10 will most likely be used as a personnel carrier for those that are on the island. Since the truck is suitable for military operations, perhaps the truck belongs to group that are heavily armed and operate similarly to a military. One thought that comes to mind is that this could be InGen, who are also seen in Jurassic World operating in a militaristic fashion. Are InGen or another armed organization returning to the island for some reason? The other truck appears to be carrying a heavy duty cage on its bed.

A cage and an island full of large dinosaurs seem like a match made in heaven. Naturally, it can be assumed that the purpose of the truck is to capture and transport a dinosaur or dinosaurs. As you’ll see down below, the truck appears to quite long, therefore it could either carry a large, lengthy dinosaur or several smaller ones. Now, whether or not it is successful remains to be seen. This truck most likely belongs to whichever organization that brings all the other vehicles to the island.

These vehicles seem to be giving the impression that there will be some sort of mission or expedition to the island that would require a large number of armed personnel, as evidenced by the Volvo N10, and the capture of dinosaurs based on the heavy duty transport truck. Assuming the above speculation is close to being correct, we cannot help but feel a The Lost World vibe from everything we’ve seen.
Let us know what you think these vehicles may be used for in the comments and with the more frequent influx of news and pictures, stay locked to Jurassic Outpost for the latest in all things Jurassic.
