Tiger 131 tank runs only twice a year, on Tiger Day in April and September, and always attracts huge crowds when it does. Visitors will have the chance to see it in action in a 45-minute WW2 tank display.
As well as an action-packed arena display, including the Panzer III, Comet, Chaffee and more, visitors will be able to get up close to vehicles in the Tank Park and explore military history traders set amongst the Museum collection.
Museum Curator David Willey said; “Tiger 131 Tank is the famous tank in the world and there are a lot of tank fans who will jump at the chance for a ride in this WW2 icon.”
All profits from the Tiger raffle and Ebay auction will go towards supporting the Museum’s historic tank collection and ensuring that Tiger 131 can be kept in running order for years to come.
The Tank Museum is also giving Tiger 131 fans the chance to win a ride in its most famous exhibit in a special charity auction, starting 12th August, and raffle. Two lucky winners will take their seat on 17 September at Tiger Day.
The Tiger 131 tank was a formidable weapon introduced by the Nazis and the capture of 131 allowed the allies to understand exactly what had been unleashed.
Fury is a regular at the event, and the two movie stars share the arena.
