So far so good your on a roll here
Is it a some kinda evasion thing used in that evasion operation before Overlord?
Getting colder again
The thing on the flatbed looks like a tent!
Was it a hasty lash-up designed to fight off Seelowe?
The Armoured (insert lorry name here) Mk. 1
Or more likely, a mobile pillbox!
Bingo! This is a Bison Mobile Pillbox. From what I can find used primarily for airfield defence :bang: .
How do we like this sporty number.
Mmmm, where are the wings? :grin:
All together now:
"Oh you pretty chitty bang-bang...."
also know as the wind wagon, the only one builded and tested a 1915 sizaire-berwick as an admiralty expeiment
that british vehicle your referring to looks like some sort of dummy vehicle . hmm.... the one on the first page.
what is the answer for your post?
This was a prototype machine developed it Britain. The idea was for use in the desert where drive wheels could easily bog down. This machine in theory would blow itself across the dunes.
For some strange reason the concept never got beyond this single machine.
I reckon it'd create dust storms beyond control. Imagine the wear on the engine and troops involved.
but my answer is the correct one?
Yep this was where I found it.
