#48 - A3 Signed print - Rolling Replen 2
It's been a long time coming and there have been quite a few folk asking for a picture containing the Stalwart High Mobility Load Carrier. A much loved vehicle among those who drove these fully amphibious 'Go anywhere' trucks. Widely regarded as a sad day when the British Army decided to replace them. Here I have depicted the Fuel 'POD' version of the vehicle as it fuels a Squadron of Chieftains as they 'Roll' through the Replenishment line taking on all the supplies needed to keep them operational and ready for combat.
#49 - A3 Signed Print - Challenger 2 LEP
The British Ministry of Defence have decided to upgrade it's fleet of already battle proven and successful Challenger 2s in order to extend its service to at least the mid 2030s. Rheinmetall have been busy redesigning the vehicle particularly with regard to the main armament and fire control systems built onto the existing hull platform. I don't intend to detail the changes here but, have reporduced the picture of the picture without the Rheinmetall brand name but with the symboll designating the Life Extension Program and in this example I have included the RTR Capbadge but, can also place in the KRH or QRH capbadges in case either of those Heavy Armoured Units get issued with the resulting vehicles.
#50 - A3 Signed Print - Mk IV Male & CR2 I was asked to update my ever popular picture of oldest and newest Tanks in British service so this is the result. It shows F56 from Cambrai 1917 (there is some confusion as to the name of the tank between 'Fan Tan' and 'Fly Paper' due to previous actions where the first Tank was knocked out by enemy fire on The Somme. That tank sported the famous 'Chinese eyes' painted on to satisfy the wishes of the Chinese business man who had donated the money to have a tank built for the war effort.) the tank also sports a painted dragon on the hull glacis plate as this had been initially painted before the wish for the eye was realised, certainly in it's first action photographic evidence shows both Dragon and eyes painted on. The challenger 2 adjacent also sports the eye as worn today by the Royal Tank Regiment. The picture can have any capbadge required inserted on the picture.
#51 - A3 Signed Print - Challenger 1 I decided to do a new print of the (in many opinions) the best looking Main Battle Tank in 'Chally 1' a revolution for the Royal Armoured Corps with its much greater reliability and mobility combined with superb armoured protection - You can choose both your unit capbadge and registration number if you wish!!
#52 - A3 Signed Print -Hellenic Army M48A5 (MOLF) I decided to do a picture for a friends father in Crete believe it or not!! Nickos was very happy with the picture of the M48A5 MOLF like the one he drove during his time with the Greek Army. It prompted me to create this new print of the tank concerned and of course, I'll be happy to shipit anywhere in the world should someone want a print - please just check out the postage rates in the purchasing information page.
