On arrival you will be issued with your uniform and a helmet and once dressed, you will be introduced to your crew, instructor and 'home' for the next hour, 1 of our 15, turreted FV432 tanks. After a briefing on the vehicle you will take it in turns to drive around the beautiful Leicestershire countryside, once a World War II bombing range- initially with the hatch open and then under battle conditions through the periscope. When it’s not your turn to drive, you will sit in the turret and enjoy the ride!
