British Army Vehicles on SPTA – 1970s to today.
The Salisbury Plain Training Area (SPTA) is the United Kingdom’s largest military training area, hosting live-firing and tactical exercises throughout the year. Salisbury Plain has played an important part in the development and military training of the British Armed Forces over the last 100 years. This publication tells the story of SPTA and shows the vehicles of the British Army used there from the 1970s up till today in selected rare photo graphical material. Let us take you back to the times when Chieftains, Stalwarts, Militants, Nubians, and Saxons, to name but a few, ruled southern England!
