So you have everything ready for your Tank Driving Experience and you have just there, find out about Tank Driving Experience at our website or reviews of satisfied customers. Now on site there are more vehicles you can drive, not just Tanks. Driving Tanks is very exiting but for some people they are just too slow. For those people we also have vehicles made by Supacat located in Honiton, Devon UK. This is a company that is under contract to the British military to deliver high mobility assault and reconnaissance vehicles.
One example of the Supacat is the Jackal. This vehicle is designed to be a fast and reliable assault vehicle. With an effective range of 497 miles it will leave any Tank in the dust. Its top speed off road is 49 miles per hour and can reach a top speed of 80 miles per hour on road. It is equipped with an air suspension which lowers the vehicle for stability while taking a shot at enemy forces or raises it up so you can avoid most obstacles in front of the vehicle.
The vehicle can carry a wide variety of weapons. One example is the 12.7 millimeter heavy machine gun. 7.62 general purpose machine gun and a 40 millimeter automatic grenade launcher.
The jackal was used by the British as a support vehicle in Afghanistan. It substituted the previous vehicle, the land rover wolf. Due to the wolf’s lack of armor underneath the cockpit it was not favored by the troops. The Jackal instead has the latest in armor protection which is arguably one of the best in the world. It has mine blast and ballistic protection on the sides and underneath the crew stations. The top is open which increases visibility. The designer put the safe being of the driver in the jackal’s high maneuverability and off road capability so it can go through less traveled roads.
The jackal’s big brother is the 6X6 Coyote. This vehicle is designed to support the Jackal and the new version the jackal 2 in combat. This is due to the coyote’s ability to carry supplies and other equipment, about 1.5 tons of it. Also the coyote’s increased wheel count also increases its weigh which now reaches 10.3 tons. The coyote is intended to be a long range patrol car, being able to reach up to 434 miles with a top speed of 75 miles per hour. This is achieved by its powerful 180 horse power engine. This power is delivered by a 6 or 7 liter turbo charged Diesel engine and an automatic five speed gearbox.
At Tank Driving Experience and other similar Tank driving services you are able to drive these beautifully powerful machines. The Coyote can accommodate a driver, three passengers and it even has a loading area in the back. So, if you don’t feel like Driving, you can still take a ride on the supacats. Since it’s designed did not include being armored the plating underneath can be taken out, this makes the Coyote a vehicle very easy to Drive. If you’ve ever driven a car you’ll feel right at home at the wheel of the Coyote. Come and find out how you can drive this and other vehicles at Tank Driving Experience.
