Too late for Christmas

draws my attention to this sales catalogue:

As a result of the new structure of Belgian Defence, a part of the major military equipment has become redundant and is therefore offered for sale.

1 x 560-tonne minehunter, with 20mm gun, crew of 49 not included;
1 x hovercraft “used during artillery exercises along the sea-side, to recover the targets and to keep the fire-area clear of ships (yachts & fishing boats)”
5 x Britten Norman BN 2A aircraft, plus spare parts
25 x Alouette 2 Astazou helicopters
14 x Lockheed Martin F16 combat planes (12 x single seat, 2x double seat)
9 x A109BA military helicopters, may need some servicing
various Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicles
325 x M113 Armoured Personnel Carriers
53 x Leopard 1 A5 battle tanks
5 x bridges, suitable for crossing rivers or other obstacles (NB best used if mounted on a Leopard 1 A5 battle tank)
219 x CVR-T light-weight armoured vehicles
8 x MOR 120 MM RT mortars, no spare parts or ammunition supplied

Just what you want to give that special someone in your life.

  1. Charles’s presence is encouraging, but it is indeed Robinson’s that is astonishing.
