Armourgeddon, based in Husbands Bosworth, Leicestershire, is one of the UK’s premier outdoor activity centres. It offers tank driving sessions, amphibious vehicle driving, as well as conventional paintball, air rifle shooting, archery and quad biking. Armourgeddon’s unique feature is ‘tank paintball’, using FV432 armoured personnel carriers fitted with 40mm paintball guns. Participants initially learn to drive the vehicles, both with the driver’s hatch open and then using a periscope. Then they learn to load, aim and fire the gun on a small firing range. Finally two teams go into battle against each other, driving their vehicles closed down and firing at each other to score the most hits. Two of the vehicles used for this are original FV432/30 fire support vehicles; Armourgeddon also has another dozen or so extemporised vehicles made by combining standard FV432s with turrets from CVR(W) Fox armoured cars.
In recent years Armourgeddon has been building up a small collection of tanks and other historic armoured and military vehicles. These are displayed in a dedicated hangar, and around the paintballing areas. Vehicles include M3 and M16 half-tracks, M8 armoured car, Humber Pig armoured personnel carrier, Ferret armoured car, BRDM2 armoured personnel carrier, BV206 all-terrain vehicle, GMC533 and Bedford trucks, and a Willys MB jeep.
