OK, so now we know it can do neutral turns - wonderful.

 

But does anyone else think that "Merthyr Tydfil, the New Home of Fighting Vehicles for the British Army" sounds like something from Monty Python? :-)

You could be right! If the Russians see that they will fall about in fits of laughter as it looks like something from Monty Python and with a name AJAX its obviously meant to do just that, as it looks hilarious.

Dad went there with his good friend Jones the mechanic and stirred up a disagreement. A question for all of you Welsh fellows (and without looking it up) where was Sir Humphrey Davy from?

looks very nice but why do we need it when we already have warrior, it seems to perform the same role. is it more airportable?

 

Rick, this is the first of a family of 6 vehicles, Ajax, Ares, Apollo, Athena, Atlas and Argus, which will replace the CVR(T) variants. Good news is that when the Ajax family come in to service the CVR(T)s would be sold off through Withams (unless the government give them away as foreign aid).

Davy was a Pastie basher. Merthyr means Matyr or Saint in Welsh, and is quite a common prefix .The AJAX family is being designated from Greek Mythology, Ajax was rated as a great definsive commander, more a thinker than a fighter. So for a See and Scoot vehicle, ideal.
