CVRT Safari Gunbus
CVRT Safari Gunbus a purpose-built vehicle for shooting parties can seat up to 12 guns. This is the first of many we plan to convert, the second is already underway. The Safari was built from a ex British army CVRT Sultan with just 600 hours use, in excellent running order. The sort top with windows is being manufactured by a company who make similar soft tops for the MOD and will have roll up sides for sunny days.
These vehicles are road legal and mot exempt and will soon be tax exempt to. They are very easy to drive but require an H licence to be operated on U.K. Roads. Here at Tanks-Alot we regularly put people through the test with a DSA examiner, we have had only one fail in the last ten years.
Off road the Safari is great fun, has very light ground pressure hardly marking grass even when turning and an unbelievable ability in tough conditions out stripping any wheeled vehicle.
All will be fitted with a military grade driver’s night vision sight so the vehicle can be driven at night without lights being used. A real help when night shooting. If your wife’s not keen on coming shooting maybe she could be persuaded if she got to drive the Safari.
The building of this actual vehicle can be watched on our Tanks-Alot Facebook with dozens of live feeds, movies and pictures, please take a look. This actual vehicle is just back from giving rides at the Trucks Tanks and Firepower show and behaved faultlessly over three days.
