I feel there's a missed business opportunity here. Perhaps we should rent our armour. Avis or Hertz could jump in.We could then just hire when needed?


I would pay good money to hire a CR2 for a few days - could teach all the appalling drivers on the roads in my neck of the woods a few lessons!

All Mark V, mind you, but tanks!

Too expensive and slow. Whippets.

Well Mk1 'Mother' is bound to turn up one of these days.  Its reputedly on Salisbury Plain if anyone fancies a spot of digging.
