The World’s best display of moving armour returns to The Tank Museum!
Experience the best display of historic moving armour in the world at The Tank Museum – bringing the story of tanks, tank crew and soldiers to life...
Historic vehicle displays will include vehicles making their show debuts, with a number of old favourites returning to the arena.
TANKFEST 2013 examines the adversarial nature of tank warfare, pitting one nations fighting armour against that of another. Our arena displays will examine the great armoured confrontations of the last century with our unique collection of working tanks. You’ll discover the strengths and weaknesses of the armour fielded by the protagonists of conflicts since World War One and find out why the tank has been integral to ultimate victory on the battlefield.
The show finale, the mock battle, will present a scenario dreaded by millions in the post war years… What if the cold war turned hot? For the first time, we will try to show how NATO would try and hold a Soviet force on the Plains of Germany with the potent threat of a nuclear strike.
