Armoured Fighting Vehicle (M113) Display Day - 2020

Visitors to the Tank Museum were treated to a rare event this Saturday, with the complete collection of the M113 family of Armoured Personnel Carriers lined up in a static display. As the only complete collection in the world, visitors were welcomed to climb inside and compare the differences and take photos. Not to be outshined, the periodic roars of the Swedish S-Tank and the Centurion Tank drew excited onlookers, as the Museum volunteers demonstrated the differences between the two vehicle's gun movement mechanics.
