On the way back to Cape Town after the HuntEx 2012 Show, the GICS HuntEx 2012 Team decided to "quickly" stop at the SA Armour Museum at the Tempe Military base in Bloemfontein.
We left 3 hours later, but it was time very well spent.
There are several armoured vehicles on display from Russian built T34's to US built Sherman's and British Crusaders.
The indoor museum displays numerous aspects of SA armour dating back to the early 1900's.
We were fortunate enough to be given a hands on demonstration of the current Rooikat Mk 1D Armoured Car and as well as the currently in service Olifant tank.
There is a lot to see and we were sorry to have to leave as we had a long way to travel and could have easily spent several more hours there. (We arrived back in Cape Town at 02:00 hours as a result of the "quick" detour.)
We definitely suggest that you visit the museum if you are ever in the Bloefontein area.
At your service,
The GICS Team
