As scheduled for post Tankfest, Our Shrivenham Defense Academy videos are now starting to come out!
This is one of my favourite armoured vehicle places in the whole UK!
My best mate Ed Francis and I visited the Shrivenham Defense Academy and in this video, we discuss how the AS-90 Self-propelled Artillery came to be as a result of the SP70 failed project.
A special thanks to SDA for having us!
Hope you enjoy!
Here’s my newest tank video before attending Tankfest, for those going as well I do hope to see you there!
Had such a blast! Still can’t believe they gave me such an opportunity! First Saumur’s Panther and now the Weald Foundation’s Jagdpanther in less than 2 months, this is a dream come true for a cat lady!
Special thank you to Weald Foundation and Harkonen aka Duarte Teixeira for the invite!

The Museums promotional video for Tiger day.
Here’s my promo-esque video from the Militracks event at the Overloon War Museum, Netherlands that I had the pleasure to attend!
I am quite impressed with how much Overloon has grown in a few years and it brings me tremendous happiness that these days tank museums are communicating much better than they use to and lending armour to each other’s shows!
On a personal level, it was lovely to finally meet some of you in person but also so many vehicle owners, historians and fellow content creators!
For those who didn’t come this year but are tempted to, I am letting you know in more advance that I am most definitely attending next year and I sincerely hope to see you there!
Have a great day!

One final look back on Bovington Tank Museums Matilda Mk. II restoration. Three years of work to get the old girl up and running, and the lads at Bovington did an amazing job:
Ed Francis has donated his entire pricy collection of tank games to The Tank Museum which prompted the museum’s desire to create an exposition surrounding objects that have helped to impact generations:
If you have any Tank games or any other important tank related objects that could possibly enrich this collection, please do consider donating them to the museum which will take good care of it.

Have a nice day!
