Kind of a neat way to make tanks family friendly.
Is this a deft move by the Luftschtaffe, Bawb?  Or is this a move filled with Dredd?

Nice idea. I've been to Bovington a couple of times - its a fantastic day out (if you like tanks of course - and if you don't like tanks there's something seriously wrong with you) & well worth the trip (if you live in southern England of course - other countries may be more challenging). I've always wanted to go down on one of their live days, when they let the tanks loose, but haven't managed so far. Might pick up the Monopoly when I'm next down there - or maybe the board game they designed in honour of Italian & Japanese tanks - RISK.

My wife and I bought tickets to the 2017 Tank Fest!!  O0

I think it was the early/mid 1960's last time I went there, so its obviously a lot better now. I still have a few B&W photo that I took. I'll have to see if I can scan them and post them up here.
