Off Track: Driving the Abbot FV433 Self-Propelled Gun
The mud pit looked impossibly deep, twin ruts at least two feet high and half full of a murky stew from the rainy spring. “Does this thing ever get stuck?” I asked.
My driving instructor, Brendan, an Airborne infantryman a few weeks shy of entering Green Beret selection, smiled and said, “Nope, just keep her straight so we can keep some trees upright.”
Just another day, taking the Abbot FV433 Self-Propelled Gun out for a spin.
