Defence Vehicle Dynamics 2018 Underway

The biennial Defence Vehicle Dynamics expo opened today at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, writes Bob Morrison.


DVD is first and foremost a showcase for new and evolving military vehicles and technology, but naturally manufacturers and suppliers of Dismounted Close Combat kit also attend the expo.

In addition to snapping proposed wheeled military vehicle solutions such as JLTV and MIV – Joint Light Tactical Vehicle and Mechanised Infantry Vehicle – out on Millbrook’s off-road tracks, we also grabbed the opportunity to photograph both static exhibits like the BAE Systems Challenger 2 Mk.2 Main Battle Tank and items of new personal equipment like the VIRTUS 3 patrol pack.

As tomorrow will be another frenetic day at Millbrook, and as there is a very interesting new aspect of military training to be covered in Hampshire on Friday, full DVD 2018 coverage will need to wait for another day; but rest assured that there are plenty of interesting stories in the pipeline.
