Engineer tanks at Hohne Camp, Germany

both first two pics - the Centurion 165 AVRE ... equipped with 165 mm demolition gun, dozer blade and fascine carrier (AVRE means Assault Vehicle Royal Engineers)

second pic - the Centurion 165 AVRE again, the trailer seems to be usual equipment carrying trailer (for spare fascines, demolition or mine clearing stuff etc) - I am sure it is not a Giant Viper Mine Clearing system)

third pic - the Centurion AVRE equipped with Trackwidth Mine Plough instead of dozer blade and fitted with rails to carry three Maxi-fascine rolls (only two carried here) or five Class 60 trackway carpet spools... Ah yes, can carry spare No.9 bridge for the Chieftain AVLB (Armoured Vehicle-Launched Bridge)

AVRE Centurions were converted from Mk.5 gun tanks...

Hi Palic! Hi Folks!

- palic

third pic - the Centurion AVRE equipped with Trackwidth Mine Plough instead of dozer blade and fitted with rails to carry three Maxi-fascine rolls (only two carried here) or five Class 60 trackway carpet spools... Ah yes, can carry spare No.9 bridge for the Chieftain AVLB (Armoured Vehicle-Launched Bridge)


Palic I agree with you on the first two tanks and the trailier.
However I must disagree with you on the third one. That is a Chieftain hull under all that engineering equipment.
