The Deal

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.

Drive A Tank, Inc

Drive A Tank teaches civilians how to handle tanks by placing them at the controls of an FV433 Abbot tank. Comprehensive tank experiences include lessons on the history of its use, from World War I up to its present function as the vehicle of choice for the most aggressive holiday shoppers. During certain packages, tanksters complete their militaristic forays by test firing WWII-era weaponry or crushing cars beneath behemoth treads.
