Fulfil your childhood fantasies and experience the thrill of driving a 15 ton military vehicle!
On arrival you will be issued with your uniform and will be introduced to your crew, instructor and 'home' for the next hour - a fifteen turreted FV432 tank! After a briefing on the vehicle you will take it in turns to drive 2 laps around the beautiful Leicestershire countryside, once a World War II bombing range. Start with the hatch open and then under battle conditions looking through the periscope. When it’s not your turn to drive, you will sit in the turret seat and enjoy the tank ride!
