Astonishing. They must, at some point have thought a "and oh - it will need to be transported by transporter (and rail)" and done the appropriate testing in house?It really was nothing to do with manouvering... the tank was a but under powered had the revs pretty high , it went up the ramps and sort of bounced down onto the locator this went under the track , basically like a chock between the rear two wheels , also , take a look at the side armour, lovely big slabs of reactive shit that had to be craned off as they were so heavy, commander tried , If I remember correctly , to reverse him straight back , but the lh track was jammed and effectively it skid turned a bit
If that No 1 is on this site , I am pretty sure he was interviewed as part of the board of enquiry, as I was
any way , when the next time came to load the Valliant , there were three trailers side by side, just in case, and it went up the centre one , no problems
But then again, obviously not.
Oh and the track guides should not have been on the trailer deck.
