I think the slogan on the side of the Boxer is a bit rich, considering it is a European collaboration.
But nice to see our ancesteral heritage from the continent being acknowledged   Wink

A Avro Vulcan leads in 'Vic' formation four English Electric Lightning F.6s during a flight in April 1968, to mark the disbanding of Fighter and Bomber Commands and the formation of RAF Strike Command.




Them were the days when 'planes looked good. Cheesy

How can you ignore Lightnings

You can't really ignore the Lightning in this photo:

https://fearoflanding.com/photography/the-story-behind-an-unbelievable-photograph/

somewhat amazingly the pilot did survive dispite ejecting at very low level and going through the roof of a greenhouse full of tomato plants.....

Looks like the Lightning left its own crop marking where it impacted  Wink

Germany still fields tankettes! Looks almost like an upgraded Vickers Light Mk.VI . . .

Love the little bit of plastic to stop it rolling backwards.

Yeah, it's not that much smaller than our Scorpion/Scimitar vehicles - slighlty 'stubbier', maybe.

I just saw that picture and thought it looked very much like a Vickers Wink

Definately the Vickers / Carden LLoyd look.

I find it hard to take armour that size seriously (Unless it has a Jaguar engine).

It probably has a Porsche or Mercedes engine
