If you go to Google Maps, shift to satellite and type in 54.329329 10.834422 it will take you to a gunnery range for tanks in eastern Germany. The target appears to be a T55 or later, I thought the beaten down areas in front and behind to be interesting. The roads all look like they are set up with gentle curves as well. Neat place to look down on.

Try the ranges at Graf in Germany as well.

But the Conquerors at Haltern have just been removed!

Tally Ho!

Hopefully recovered for restoration or parts and not scrap

It's the future that gets you – when you realise what you were shooting at. I remember using Churchills for target practice…

@kabrank

Having seen the conquerors were bare hulls and turrets filled with concrete I expect they would be rather difficult to restore.
