Millions of tanks pretending to be trees - pick out anything particularly interesting if it deserves promotion to a page ...

Some Centurion pages merged, but keeping the rest separate for various differences and/or because different segments in the film.

Plane #1......P-51 'Mustang'. The Twin Tailed planes in set #2 look like C-117 'Flying Boxcars'.

DVD set has a 30-second TV/cinema recruitment advert included on 2nd DVD with apparent title "Army Summer of 1968"
[Image: title.326.jpg]
- so not a recognised film on imdb or elsewhere, therefore ineligible for a page. But has some captures for fun which I'll post here on the title film for the collection, in case anyone with the DVD set is actually looking to find out what they are. In order of appearance:

1] a tracked thing

2] thing having engine removed

3] twin things on a kit-built bridge

Tracked thing is a GKN FV432, what looks like a couple of Daimler scout cars on the bridge, but the engine removal could be anything.
