Tank Passenger Ride in Oxfordshire
On television shows, in documentary footage, many of us have wondered what it would be like to be driven in a tank. Huge, intimidating and unstoppable from the outside, they're very different inside, and now there's a chance to find out exactly what being a passenger is like. Be met, welcomed and introduced to the mighty GKN Sankey FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, a 15-tonne tank complete with turret, machine gun and designed to hold a 12 man crew. Then slide into this mighty beast and get ready to be driven around a purpose built off road course for 20 minutes. Running on caterpillar treads rather than wheels, it's certainly different to being chauffered in a car!
