Trojan AVRE

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.

Great shot and description of this versatile military engineer vehicle.
Of particular interest is the fascine bundle being carried on the rear. Fascines (sometimes more than one) are used to fill in small gullies or stream beds so that tanks can cross the gap successfully.
