TS2 or Gvozdika Russian Tank
With 7 Gvozdika Russian Tanks to choose from, We were offered a TS2 or gvozdika I was a bit keen as i knew although massive and a big gunned these things can swim, fully amphibious
The Abbott 17 ton gun tank is fast and manoeuvrable lever steering and auto box, just like a big dodgem really. In its day was based on the Rhine, and shoots over nine miles with a 105mm Howitzer still used by several armies around the world.
The ultimate heavy tank, at over 55 tons it makes mincemeat of everything in its path. The mainstay MBT of the British Army for over 30 years, they are still highly regarded by armies around the world.
Lance Missile Carrier

As for price, best sit down quick £1600 - £4000 plus hire of a low loader to ship her to your area and an excess mileage charge if the mileage starts getting serious. But wow what an entrance and who knows maybe the safest way to travel round London, "those taxis better look out."
You may even get the chance to drive an actual veteran vehicle from WW2. If the mud gets to deep for the ferret's, which is unusual, out comes our 1942 GMC six wheel drive fuel bowser truck, which we use daily for refuelling our tanks. Known as a "Jimmy" it has the biggest wooden steering wheel you'll ever see!
US Marines deep wader, one of 17 variants. 6.5litre V8 diesel. This massive hulk only seats 4 and ear protection is recommended as there is no home comforts here. Not usually sold by the US government these were bowered from the film set of "Black Hawk Down" and they have not missed them yet.

So TANKHEARSE is now ready for action, just for the trip to the church, we're not undertakers just tankie people, so you will still need the experts. Who is it for? Anyone who wants it. Tank nuts mostly I guess, but that remains to be seen and of course yours truly.
The 432 is a lever steering automatic and can reach an off road speed of over 30 mps.It is powered by a Rolls Royce straight eight and served as everything from a battlefield van to a minelayer rocket launcher, troop carrier to mortar firer. The squaddies favourite
