The 'War Horse' Tank
The Tank Museum has obtained the tank used in Steven Spielberg's new World War One blockbuster Warhorse. The fully operational replica of a British Mk IV tank is set to go on display when the film is released next week, and will also be used in the Dorset based Museum's tank displays later in the year. The full sized replica was based on the Museum's own Mark IV, which was built in 1917. OSCAR award-wining special effects company Neil Corbould Special Effects LTD, whose credits include Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator, visited The Tank Museum in 2010 to take measurements from the vehicle and copy original documents related to the MK IV tank held in the Museum's Archive.
