AMPHIBIOUS TRIALS OF FV432 (FOX TURRET) WITH MODIFIED SCREEN VISOR, TAW ESTUARY, SEPTEMBER 1971 [Allocated Title]
Military Vehicle Experimental Establishment (MVEE) trials film showing an FV432 armoured personnel carrier undergoing amphibious trials with a modified flotation screen (with extra visor sections to the screen at front and rear).
The carrier, which is in camouflage livery, drives into the water numerous times (each time with a different number on the side of the flotation screen). On some of the later runs, it becomes stuck in the mud several times and has to be winched out. Close-ups of the ruts made by the tracks. Some runs are in slow motion. (The film can notes that this particular FV430 is the variant with a Fox turret, although the flotation screen hides the turret from view.)
