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
Military Vehicle Photos
Trojan Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers (AVRE).
Developed on the Challenger 2 chassis, it has a winch and a knuckle-arm excavator shovel. It can can be fitted with either a frontal mine plough, for clearing paths through mine fields or a dozer blade for moving earth or building inplacements. It can tow a trailer such as the Python Minefield Breaching System carrying the Python, a rocket-propelled hose similar to the Giant Viper. This allows for a much quicker way of clearing a path for ground forces. The hose, packed with explosive, is launched across a minefield, and detonates after it hits the ground, clearing a 7-metre wide path for 230 metres.
