UK Armour visit to Tidworth

Recommended Posts

This thread is a short AAR of a visit to Tidworth for three members of

Uk Armour, kindly arranged by CR2_Commander.

Firstly we had a good climb over and in this lovely CR2, and Hedge looks like he could get used to being a cab rat, and it looks like my car is about to get the good news.

I take it you made thousands of photographs and hours of video footage? Maybe a couple internal measurements as well?

We also had a bit of a play in the Simulators,

First the PTT, which I think stands for PART TASK TRAINER,

then there's the PGTE, which stands for PRECISION GUNNERY TRAINING

EQUIPMENT, both were great fun to have a play with.

We did have a go at turning the turret round!!

Slow, slow, slow, too fast :biggrin:

They were in some need of TLC....

I found a couple of bits of brass and a Twix wrapper in that driver's hole. :)

Drivers hole? Is that the technical term hedge?

"HEAT"?

What sort of UK drills are you guys learning - surely "HESH" or "SHELL"?

Changed it as soon as I realized that. :)

Damn you, SB!

I just thought I would resurrect this post as there has been a bit of interest on another post about internal pics of a CR2

 

Might be of interest to some

It's only been 6 years. (besides the more we mention the CR2, the more the subliminal thoughts will get into Ssnakes head that the model in SB needs finishing)

Or we just wait a while and they'll all be gone - in line with the MoD's cost saving activities, then no need to model it at all. ;)

The MoD spend millions upgrading some of them.

 So yep your probably right they will scrap them. LoL
