I have a cunning plan. If we make inflatable vehicles but witout the bottom panels, we can pull them over the real thing and make them look like decoys. Haha Mr Ivan, never thought of that one did you? We play chess here too you know... what's that? Oh I see...
When I was in the TACP at 204 Sig Sqn in the early eighties we used to have them for that very reason. However the best thing about them was the T62 version used to have a large space under the engine decking which allowed us to hide in them on the tank park.
They were excellent,with a kero heater, canvas chairs and table you could spend most of the day playing cards or kipping, while "testing" the kit.
we were going to nick one at otterburn then somebody metioned how much they cost and decided the growns might get a tad upset.
also failed to persuade our ppl that taking an raf wessex for a cabby would be a laugh.
well we did but way way too much beer had been consumbed at that point.
