The British Chieftain Main Battle Tank

Firearms News Senior Field Editor David Fortier not only writes for our pages but he also has a bit of fun in front of the camera with Guns&AmmoTV. In this segment he is in Uvalde, Texas at the living history museum DriveTanks.com. There he discusses the Cold War era British Chieftain Main Battle Tank with its 120mm gun with Brandon Riley. Fortier does more than just discuss it though. He also climbs inside the driver’s position, takes it for a spin and flattens a car with it. You are sure to get a kick out of this segment! Perhaps you’d like to drive a Chieftain yourself, and crush a car too! Visit www.DriveTanks.com to learn more about what they offer.
