The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Chieftain Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers
A Chieftain Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers (AVRE) is pictured carrying a fascine at the Firepower Demonstration, the Land Warfare Centre Warminster, Salisbury Plain.
The AVRE is designed to clear obstacles and paths through battlefields. It can be fitted with a bulldozer earth-moving attachment; a full-width mine-plough or it can carry fascines to drop into ditches. The AVRE is based on the Challenger chassis.
