Bovington
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

It's hard to take pictures inside the VCC building, poor light, lack of space and normally the ground floor is not accessible. Yet there are many rare or unique vehicles there, so I will post something anyway.

I have a question about this, it's clearly a CVR(T), but which version? The antenna mast make me believe it's a command vehicle, but the Sultan has the higher hull. Hope somebody can help

Does anyone know if the FV4005 was ever test fired? It looks to me as if the turret would come off backwards if they tried it!

I think I have it as an Alvis Stormer. It has 6 road wheels instead of 5 for a normal CVR(T).

I didn't considered the Stormer because I was only aware of the Starstreak version. But you made a very good point about the number of road wheels. Thanks

I photographed all the vehicles in the BCC when I visited in 2014, and I already asked for identification of each vehicle :

Good job. Maybe I can add something too

This is Chieftain Crazy Horse, an hard target, remote-controlled conversion:

All I have is Duston's Centurion about the two version of the FV4005: "Neither vehicle proceeded beyond the prototype stage".
