The Tank Museum - Bovingdon

Postby Georgeconna » Sun Aug 05, 2018 10:42 pm

Hi Folks,

Managed to get in a visit to this Museum in Dorset during the summer hols. We were a couple of mile from the Lulworth camp and slight PTSD from the Gunfire and Tank Firing during the night!

Heres a few snaps from the Lunchtime Tank Demo featuring a Ferret Scout, FV432 APC MFX375G Achilles, Chieftain tank, KTL 256E, Dissident and some 'Soldiers'

The Ferret in Berlin Scheme, Urban Camo... yeah LOL.

And one for a Certain SPUD. The FV4005 was an SPG based on the Centurion chassis, and was armed with a huge 183mm Gun. 2 Prototypes were built
