Preserved Tanks in Britain
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.

Ah Lance, now that was one big firework that really went with a bang! I hope it had a drill missile fitted, without them the vehicles look a bit like an empty bucket!

Unfortunately not, I think it's used in a 'beach landing' type paintball game.

As part of its past history do you think it's reasonable to presume that it used to be with 50 Missile in Germany? I can't imagine where else it came from.

Ancaster's Chieftain. I'll upload to Flickr or the like, when I can get to a decent internet connection, and link to that for others' benefit!
No visible markings, except the number 12 on a white panel, lower rear hull.

For background I've written up 50 Missile (who it happens I used to serve next to). Let me know if I've got anything wrong. With a bit of luck I'll eventually track down all the ex Lance vehicles, assuming they still exist.

Hi Trevor,
Thanks, don't forget to mention the 69th US Army Field Artillery Detachment who were very much part of the Regiment, especially as they actually owned the warheads and accompanied each Battery.

Also I'm never too sure about the vehicle designation, the Loader/Transporters were often referred to as the M688 and the Launchers as M752 but the vehicles were exactly the same and the launcher truss or L/T crane could be put on either vehicle.

These vehicles also had differnet numbers of track links on each side which always surprised me, is that common for afvs?

Tim,

Ok, updated.

That's typical for vehicles with torsion bar suspension - the bars cross the full width of the vehicle and because of their size have to be staggered so, for example, the bars from the left are just ahead of the right, and so the left and right track shapes are not symmetric. Which is to say, it's almost unheard of in the British Army but common in US, Soviet and German armies.

Further on this big boy. Had a closer look today, there's a code embossed on the upper front plate, just infront of the driver's hatch.

Some colleagues of mine visited the artillery school at Larkhill.
This is what they found on display:
...
Original pictures are here.
Pictures by Leo Regemoortels, they may be used under the usual conditions.

Michel



Many thanks Michel - I'll get to write that up as soon as I can.


Larkhill Artillery School is now written up, thanks for the pictures. Any additional information would be appreciated, for example I can see the locations of two of the vehicles in Google maps but can't find the other two:

Location ID 3060: Royal Artillery School, Larkhill


It has also prompted me to write up Larkhill Range:

Location ID 3067: Larkhill Range

Post subject: Re: Preserved Tanks in Britain

Apart from a few posts I have been quiet on this forum for the last month because I have been very busy. For Christmas I had ten days holiday at home booked. Although I am 'officially' still working on tanks in the Netherlands and Brazil it seemed like a rare opportunity to work on a special project. I therefore decided to tackle Bovington, a collection I've been working on piecemeal for some years. I set myself the challenge of adding ten tanks per day for the ten days, with photographs. I didn't quite manage the target but I continued to work on it once I went back to work. In just under a month I have so far added 160 tanks and 470 photographs.

The work continues, but those who are interested are welcome to view the work-in-progress:


Location ID 3000: Bovington Tank Musem - Public Areas
- currently 116 tanks


Location ID 3016: Bovington Tank Musem - Reserve Collection
- currently 101 tanks

Having got frustrated with searching the Bovington online vehicle records I spent some time working out a better, repeatable way of accessing them - and not just current ones, but past ones too. I worked through these one by one during the holidays and reached number 400 out of 626. I will get back to these soon (though the total number now has risen to 633 with the first acquisitions of 2012). For every tank I've found that goes on PreservedTanks.com I have added its online record to its profile page. I have also made a paper record of other tracked vehicles of interest (e.g. APCs, half-tracks) in case anyone else is interested in accessing them directly. The alternative in many cases to find a particular vehicle is to page through the 600 records one by one.

My next steps are to continue going through the records to the end, then add missing photos that I'm aware of - my own old scans from past visits, plus Massimo's excellent pictures (hope that's ok Massimo!). At that point I'll make an open appeal for missing information and photographs here and on HMVF (which has a lot of Bovington acolytes).

One interesting side effect of working on Bovington is that, since it has many unique and unusual British tanks, the British tanks section of PTC is now hugely enhanced. I will soon have to split it into multiple volumes, as I've already done for German, American and Soviet vehicles:
