Two almost brand new military A-109s (with weapon pylons) were captured at the end of the Falklands war in 1982.
They were used by the SAS in civil guise, two more were added in I think 1984, being essentially civilian looking they are inconspicuous, doubtful if they've ever been used abroad, they seem to be fast transports for the anti-terrorist CRW troop of the regiment.
Look at the range of military serials being allocated in the 1982-84 period, that will put you in the area of the A-109s.
