Nice! Thank you for sharing.

At least 3 non penetrating impacts on the front of the tank. Impressive.

But the three colors on the wheels might be a mistake (flashing effect while moving). On the other hand, elefants did not really move all that much… :|

Ah, I see the link now – silly me.
Great photos – thanks for sharing them.
I must get down to Bovington before too long.
I worked close to the Aberdeen Proving Ground for a while but just after they had shut down the exhibition area sadly.

I visited Bovington recently. What it was great to see the Tiger collection the display area itself is the most dreary, antiseptic setting I can imagine. Completely at odds with the rest of the museum. Whoever thought it was a good design???
