Inside of the MKIV Tank


 

The inside of our MKIV Replica tank is of course completely different from how it was originally. We use other technologies and security is now strictly controlled. Take a look at the video above so that you have a better idea of ​​what it was like at the time. Inside it was no fun, the heat, the noise, the smell / fumes, metal splinters from impact of ammunition .... On this page we will give you an idea of ​​how we have adapted the interior from the present to the present!

In the past, they needed 4 soldiers to control the tank

Now we can operate the tank from the outside with the remote control.

They didn't have LED lighting then (we know!), But for us a useful accessory in a non-war environment
