Centaurs.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Did anyone see the Centaur tanks under water on BBC 2 last night in the 'Coast' programe?
    The two tanks are 65feet down off the West Sussex coast.
    They were lost on D Day on the way to Normandy, along with two armoured bulldozers and a field gun.
    The landing craft capsized in bad weather.
    The Royal Marines and crew were rescued.
    The tanks had been specially adapted by the RM Armoured Support Group
    for support on Juno beach.
    It is said they are in 'fantastic ' condition but unfortunately upside down.
    Only 80 of these tanks were thought to have been made and only two thought to have survived the war.
     
  2. I was pretty amazed at it myself...Ahhh... but...............who will pay to recover them??? They definately should be though.......recovered that is.
