War & Peace - Chieftan

   This is probably about as close as I ever want to get to  a moving Chieftan Main Battle Tank.

   War & Peace is one of the biggest military shows in the world. It is held at The Hop Farm in Kent and features a parade ring for mobile displays.

   My fellow Blogger, Zzzzzz, once owned a company of these - at least he signed for them.

   Below is a 'pig', a wheeled APC last used in Northern Ireland.

  1. Um, I don't think that's a Humber 'Pig' they only have 4 wheels. I reckon that's a Saracen. Possibly a mortar variant from the looks of it, with the open roof ?

    Looks like a good day out.

  2. Dear K
    Oh right, I thought Saracans were called pigs as well.
    It was fun!

  3. Saracens nicknamed Saracan by squaddie.
