Many of the vehicles we house are unique and can be seen nowhere else in the world. Our Archive and Library is the worlds foremost research centre on the subject of armoured warfare. There are thousands of documents and thousands more (250,000) images; including technical documents, vehicle handbooks and testing/training and strategy documents - images and copies of which can be purchased.
