Head in the clouds.

MBT found.

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks

I don't normally play in this playground but I thought it may be of interest for you AFV fans. AS I was travelling along the A17 towards Holbeach in Lincolnshire,where a Hawker HUnter , F402 (I think) and an artillery gun are displayed there is now an MBT, but not sure what it was, it seemed fairly modern, but as I was licking along in traffic I could glean no more.Thought it may be good if you want some walkaround photos.

Hope this helps

Gary.

Also the tank mentioned may be at the bottom of their photo album :

If so, it's a fake: Chieftain running gear and a mocked-up M1 hull and turret. Memory suggests it was a movie prop, but what movie eludes me.

Was that 'courage under fire'?
