Involving more than 290 military vehicles, helicopters landing and taking off daily, pyrotechnic displays, tank driving displays and re-enactor groups with authentic weapons and kits, the 12th Tanks Trucks and Firepower was another showstopper.

Organised by the Alvis Fighting Vehicle Society led by Andrew Baker, there was a constant stream of action and entertainment along with hundreds of impressive military vehicles to enjoy.

These included such as the Challenger 1 main battle tank, a Sherman, an AFV Combat Engineering vehicle, the family of CVR(T) vehicles and other modern military vehicles used in various conflicts the UK has been involved with over the past three decades.
