so  I was up at warcop last week doing a range recce and to my surprise one of the ranges im running had these as hard targets I of course had to check the area (well that's my excuse ) unfortunately even my landrover wasn't to happy going x country (lots of fairly deep ruts overgrown with grass )so I tried to zoom in using my phone  thease are the results  im more pissed that im running a range in july shooting at them IMG_20200608_101036-vi.jpgIMG_20200608_101220-vi.jpgIMG_20200608_101225-vi.jpg the last even has a turret and what looks like a gun but maybe just a pipe shoved in there

Fire, miss , Fire, miss, Fire, miss.

 

you lot are shit!!

 

over the back of Warcop are some Cromwell parts I found which Eddy8men went and confirmed. The farmers tractor regularly goes up there so they’re accessible but it’s the permission in this day and age that’s difficult to obtain. The DSA just put stupid values on things and are totally disorganised to say the least. They have their preferred buyers who they’ll bend over backwards for but anyone else is second rate. And once they know about something they are likely to offer it to that preferred buyer than let you, the notifier purchase it at it’s true value.

However, they are not crocodiles, just standard Churchill VII's. The hull mount is for BESA mg.

Sounds like a quick call to the range supervisor was in order to prevent a potentially lethal accident?
