You can drive at least four monstrous Military Vehicles across 100 acres of seriously prepared tank courses, massive holes, banks and water splashes with this amazing experience! You'll fire a 17th century Mortar and a Flintlock Musket, learn all about a range of modern weapons, try your hand at clay shooting and hone your survival skills in the woods. You'll also take control of incredible vehicles including an American Lance nuclear missile launcher - and the best driver at the end of the day gets to try balancing a 56 ton Chieftain Main Battle Tank on top of a family saloon car!
Set on 100 acres of Northamptonshire countryside, this incredible full-day experience gives you the chance to drive at least four Military Vehicles across seriously prepared tank courses, massive holes, banks and water splashes. You’ll be able to take control of vehicles such as the Russian fully amphibious Turbo powered Grozdilka (the only vehicle of its kind in the UK), the 432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, the 6x6 skid steer Supacat and an American Lance nuclear missile launcher. What’s more, the best driver on the day gets to drive over a family saloon car in a massive 56 ton Chieftain Main Battle Tank!
Also included in the day is an hour in an armoury, where you’ll get to see and learn about hundreds of weapons from 17th century flintlock muskets and pistols right up to current day hardware AK47’s MP5’s and rocket propelled grenade launchers – with all your questions answered by an ex-British army sniper/mercenary. You’ll also spend an hour in the woods learning survival skills, try your hand at clay shooting with 12 bore shotguns and spend a fascinating hour with an 18th century Cohorn mortar crew, where you can try your hand at shooting flintlock muskets and being part of a mortar crew! All drivers will be supplied with camo overalls. Refreshments are included all day along with a very good hot lunch, sometimes themed!

I surprised my husband and our teenage son with your Full Monty Tank Day for two they're both into everything like that so I knew they'd enjoy it. They had an unforgettable day driving various military vehicles (I forget their names!) and trying out weapons (I couldn't look at this point!). They got to practice SAS skills in the woodland too. I went as a spectator and even I got involved. The staff can't do enough for you and really looked after my son. Highly recommended!

Driving a tank was BRILLIANT! But that was only part of this awesome army day! There were guns and armoured vehicles and SAS tasks and it was a whole day of incredible experiences. Needless to say I enjoyed it a lot!
