Bang

Big thing on tracks that goes boom! Or gets blown up by some muppet at BATUS.

Used by The Royal Artillery.

Vaguely Interesting Point: Most RA Self Propelled systems from WWII onwards have had ecclesiastic names: Abbot, Priest etc.


AS90 took so long and so much money to get into service because of VSEL fuck-ups that it has been christened "Choirboy" on account of 10 years being buggered by Vickers.
