Fired my first tank gun!!! – FV101 Scorpion Tank –


Ive finally posted online the footage were I fired my first tank gun, a 76 mm gun from a Scorpion, not too bad for a start!

It’s amazing how much the vehicle suppressed the noise, although I’m aware that the armor would take some of sound away, I was expecting a bit of a louder bang noise in the inside because the hatches were open. Also, felt really uncomfortable as the trigger was pressed by foot, I have tiny feet and still could be so easy to misstep on it, was literally grabbing my left leg to make sure it wouldn’t go near it after the shell was in bc I do stupid things when nervous.

Didn’t get to keep the shell case as a souvenir but did try my luck.

-And should’ve brought the brown pants. :P-


This took place at Wicksteed at War, I enjoyed this event so much that offered to help for the next year event and I’m now one of the organisers. If you wanna join me for some fun, you are more than free to apply as a volunteer, contact info:Β
