Overview

Here's a hard hitting package that really packs a punch. Train to take on the tank challenge. This superb military themed experience puts you in control of a selection of real ex-services vehicles. You'll start in a 432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, a model still used by the British Army despite being designed in the 1960's. Then you’ll get to take the controls of a Supercat; a go anywhere, all-wheel-drive vehicle. You have the choice of 4 wheel steering or skid steering, it's manoeuvrability made it an instant choice for the Gulf War. You'll also get to go into the Armoury, where an ex-British Army sniper & mercenary will talk you through some of the more personal hardware that they have. AK47's, MP5 machine guns, how to field strip a WW2 Bren gun, even a handheld grenade launcher. Then it's onto the big stuff! The Gvodika is the charming nickname for the Soviet 2S1 122mm Self-Propelled howitzer. A tank by any other name, the Gvodika is still in active service in many countries. Fully amphibious, fully protected against Nuclear, Biological and Chemical weapons, this piece of Warsaw Pact hardware was on the front line of the cold war, and you get to drive it. As if that wasn't enough, the best driver of the day will also get to park a Chieftain Main Battle Tank on top of a family car (don't worry, they take the family out first!). So, have you got what it takes?
