The ultimate father figure should of course know how to drive a tank! Develop tank driving skills, practice your aim and enjoy a great day out with your son in this Dads & Lads Tank Experience.
You will be given a health and safety briefing and learn about the history of the FV432 tank you will be driving. Next, enjoy a passenger ride with your instructor as he takes you round the course set out on a World War 2 bombing range. Then assume your battle positions for target shooting! After practicing your aim, it's Dad's turn to drive 2 laps of the track. First you will drive one lap with the hatch open and the second with it closed, peering out a periscope to navigate. Get ready for a day filled with military madness!
