It doesn’t get much more full on than this: a whole day of intense military action. You'll have at least four vehicles to drive, a session of SAS skills deep in the woods and you’ll learn to fire a few remarkable weapons from days gone by.

As soon as you arrive at the Full Monty experience, you’ll be chucked in the back of a FV432 Troop Carrier with your fellow comrades and whisked off to Base Camp. Well, that might be the wrong word – these massive tanks don’t quite reach the necessary speeds for ‘whisking’. But you can be sure nothing’s going to stop them once they get going.

At Base Camp, you’ll be briefed and issued with the latest in military high couture – a trusty camouflage suit and a sturdy helmet. The line up for the day varies according to how many are present and the mood of the head honcho, but here’s a sneak preview of what’s in store…

You will have the chance to personally take charge of four different kinds of hardcore military vehicles. This includes taking an almighty 56-ton tank for a spin and testing how its amphibious cousin fares in a water crossing. You’ll be taught how to fire a Flintlock Musket and a 17th century Mortar in a competition against other teams. Finally, you’ll be taught a few of the dark arts of the SAS before being pitted against your fellow players in the woods.

There’ll be points to win throughout the day and the overall leader wins a fitting prize: he or she will get the chance to balance that fearsome 56-ton Chieftain Main Battle Tank on top of a family saloon car!
What happens on the day?
This is a full day experience that lasts from 9 in the morning until 6.30 in the evening. And with the line up we’ve got, you can expect to be pretty exhausted by the end of the day. The exact agenda varies day by day, but always starts with everyone getting loaded into a FV432 Troop Carrier and taken into the woods. Upon arrival at Base Camp you’ll be briefed and kitted up and then it’s time for the games to begin: you’ll drive at least four military vehicles, learn to load and fire at least two historically significant weapons, learn some SAS skills and spend time competing for the grand prize. A chance to drive a massive tank on top of a car very similar to the one you rode in on. You’re welcome to bring spectators, but they’ll cost you £30 a pop (this includes lunch, refreshments and few thrilling rides). The minimum age for participants is 12. The minimum age for spectators is 7. This experience runs between March and October on the last Saturday of the month.....
