Our NG4 will play a prominent role in the activities and celebrations throughout the festival.

Military Machines International

For the first time an internationally recognised Military vehicle collectors publication has published advance information on one of our annual events. It is true that there will be a greater emphasis on our Military vehicle collection which has been developed in association with the Armour Museum at the School of Armour in Bloemfontein.

The arrival of our model Ratel 656 MK3 Infantry Fighting Vehicle will add further weight to the appeal of our fine collection of Military vehicles.
