- $239 for a 3 Star Lieutenant General tank-driving experience for one ($399 value)
The driver’s experience begins with an informational bonanza that covers the history of many war-time vehicles including the FV433 Abbot SPG, a self-propelled gun. After a safety-and-familiarization course, participants will ride in a military troop transport truck to the hidden field-command headquarters. There, they receive instructions on how to drive and then hop into an armored FV433 SPG for one lap around a wooded course. They will also participate in firearm safety training and fire a real fully automatic machine gun at the indoor range while an instructor stands ready to assist.
