30 seconds later the marshaller realised it was a really misjudged time to say to Bertie Banksman " 'ere, hold my beer".
Bertie never knew what hit him.

The French may think they have “the world beating” TUV, but they haven’t met our APC train yet.

Good thing the railroad called back to confirm the order Hoskins placed.
Yeah, but I would love to have seen the Colonel's face when a locomotive pulled in with 50 tank cars.

The Israeli Defence Force takes delivery of their new Main Battle Tank.
or
BAE design the UK's new Main Battle Tank, and a fine machine it is, however funds for the big gun come up a bit short.

Don't we need some tie-down chains? No, Boeing provided a Mechanized Carrier Attachment System. What could go wrong?

The re-invasion of France was going badly as the armoured spearhead was diverted to Manston to await its turn to clear customs at Dover

New Hornby 00 and Action Man Gulf War Set launched at the trade fair. Supplies were held up for unknown reasons in Suez.

As the Out of Service date approaches the Army gives up their old tanks. However they have to pay the scrap man to take them away....

To late they find the replacement electric units only have a 10 mile range so to get anywhere more rail lines are needed
Greta was not impressed

Russia proudly shows off its new body armour that reputably stops a 50 cal bullet. Just have to look at making it a tad more mobile.

In an attempt to subvert the planned sale of the Warrior, the British Army demonstrates electrification of the Warrior by running it up and down the west coast mainline.

Following on from allowing everyone’s pet project at the MOD for the Warriors turret, little room was found for the installation of the gun.
