Mystery CVR(T)s Spotted - Any thoughts

#1
Just in by twitter:

@Arrse I've just seen a train of CVR(T)s at Eastleigh, some still had the gun from the Scorpion and not the Sabre/Scimitar Rarden. Strange.
@dunks517 What colour scheme did they have? If yellow then probably 'enemy' vehicles used on Salisbury plain and BATUS
@Arrse green and black, they wee in rag order some Spartans with a hexagonal cupola at the rear?
Any other thoughts?

As already stated, Warminster had a fleet of gash old AFVs with all sorts of shit put on them to play as enemy. They were Grey(ish) in colour. Though they left Warminster sometime in 2002/3

Could be foreign stuff over here to train. I saw some Froggies in Military March on the M25 in Kent a few weeks back. I would usually worry seeing the French Army in Kent - they've been too quiet for too long, but since they were heading for the Ferry I assumed they weren't invading.

Don't be so sure! Damn sneaky those continental types! Mind you, all we have to do is get a few Welsh women in national costume to swan around and they will leg it.

Does it never worry any of you English that not only do you still have a major Scottish infantry unit posted down in the South east, almost as near as you can bet to 'La Belle France', but that it was recently involved in a number of exercises with FRA Army units?

It could possibly lead to a a resurrection of the 'Auld Alliance' and a sneak attack................

Nah, Scottish Regiments can be rounded up by arranging a match at Twickenham and sticking anybody in a Fiji shirt in a POW camp.

Could be some Sturgeons or Salamanders come back from BATUS to be scrapped? About time as they were all in rag order. Must have missed that, as I'm in Romsey with the railway line behind my house.

You are only talking about the Fijian contingent, remember to catch the 'native' contingent (especially on a millionaires weekend, they'll be all over the South East and all points North) you'll need to bait traps with bottles of Buckfast ala Wiley Coyote style...........

good point, we need to make sure that wee eck doesn't meet anyone from the UAE or we will end up with scots militia on the wall with FNs - we'd be slaughtered.

First they take Timbukto, they they move on London.

There are several companies around the world offering CVR(T) upgrades, in the UK this includes BAE Systems at Donnington and Repaircraft at Cranleigh. CVR(T) is now seen once more as a sexy and capable platform and a lot of countries are looking to rework their fleets; several hundred remain in service around the worlds and ther is no replacement. I would put money on BAE Systems offering news build vehicles within a couple of years following the success of the Scimitar upgrade involving a completely new build hull.

It could be a demonstrator unit or even an old museum piece.
