Open House at GHRVPK Denmark 2021.


Recommended Posts

On Saturday 25/9-2021 if Covid is willing, there is Open House at GHRVPK at Næstved.


GHRVPK = The Guard Hussar Regiment Veteran Armor and Vehicles Union


It is possible to see all and crawl around on and in most of our vehicles.




There will be some demonstration driving in the exercise area with at least some blank firing of some of the tank cannons. Hopefully there will also be a combat demo but that is still to be determined. I will update on that.


It will also be possible to try the upgraded Steel Beasts Pro PE sim in our Leopard 1A3 trainer turret with a genuine Leopard 1A5-DK1 gunners grip. We have upgraded the PC and gone from SB Pro PE version 3.028 to 4.265 and they shoot back in the new scenario! (Impotently.)




A little of what we have:

A small update.

The event will start at 0900 with static displays and APC's and wheeled vehicles will be doing some driving, some of them with passengers.


1500 to 1600 will be a Battle Demo and the event will end at 1600.


I will mostly be at the sim, but it will be closed during the Battle Demo as I want to watch.

Thank you for the nice words Grenny.
It was great having you up here. Also thank you for showing me the manual targeting tecnique and delivering the mousemats. They where made available right away, but didn't move as fast as they could have. I know I will get one for the Sim.


I was to busy with the Sim, so I don't have any pictures, but I saw a lot of happy faces on our guests and members. 


Sunday was just as busy with the same static displays and a closed event for the Danish Interforce community. This time without a battle demo, but this time with rides for Interforce members and their families in most of our ready to ride vehicles, including tanks.

InterForce is the Employer Support organisation of the Danish Armed Forces. InterForce endeavours to create the best possible conditions for employees that have obligations both in civilian work life as well in the Reserve or the Home Guard. They bassically guarantee that their employees have a job when they return from exercises and/or missions with the armed forces.


I do have one correction. I didn't make the setup. That was done back in about 2015, with the help of one of our group members, that was also a tester when SB was implemented in the Danish Army. I have just upgraded and expanded it.


One thing to learn. If anyone who is planning to visit, intend to come with public transportation, it would be a very good idea to take contact, so transport can be arranged from Næstved Station, as there are nothing going in that direction, especially in the morning hours. A TAXI on Saturday or Sunday is close to 200 Danish kroner.

I was lucky to meet Greeny at the Station, when he asked me for directions on how to get out there. That meant that he could join me in the ride I had arranged for myself.


A final note. Usually our Open House is in the end of May but was this year moved to September due to the Covid-19 situation.


The current plan for next year's Open House is Saturday 21 of May 2022.


Thank you Koen. It was great to let the public try out the beast fully for the first time.

Most dedicated?
A son of one of the homeguard exhibitors that returned several times on Saturday and was the first one in line before opening on Sunday. He got half the scenario before a que started to form and returned a couple of times. He was there when it was time for my late lunch break and got the full scenario.


There are 72 targets in the scenario and it takes about 20 to 30 minuttes to run through for somebody who haven’t tried it before.
I did a speed run at the end of sunday and it took me 15.59 minuttes.


And then there where the other kids returning 3 or 4 times.

Happy Simming
