British Fox CVR(W)

British Fox CVR(W)

An image of a Fox Combat Vehicle, Reconnaissance (Wheeled) or CVR(W) formerly in service with the Queens Own Yeomanry, a British Territorial Army or volunteer regiment but now serving as a gate guardian. It was equipped with a 30mm Rarden gun in it's rather over-sized turret which caused it to be notoriously top heavy. It could reach speeds of up to 65mph (105km/h) but had a tendency to roll if cornering at speed, sometimes with fatal results. It was built by Royal Ordnance, Leeds and served in the mid to late 1970's and 1980's.
