The Tank Museum has obtained the tank used in Steven Spielberg's new film War Horse (which I'm hoping to see next week). I saw this news reported a couple of days ago but the Museum have now put out this short video explaining why they decided to buy the replica and what they intend to do with it.
This is a fully operational replica of a British Mk IV tank and was based on the Museum's own Mark IV, which was built in 1917. On the inside is a modern excavator vehicle providing the power but the exterior detailing and handling are authentic looking. So much so in fact that the Museum decided it was worth buying to run at events like Tankfest in June.
The replica will go on display this weekend so I'll get to see it when I attend Tiger Day at the end of March. There's no word yet of they will run this vehicle at that event but I have my fingers crossed!
