The Alvis Stalwart Experience
- Passenger Minimum age is 12
Have fun with this ‘big boy’s toy’ of epic proportions
The ‘Stolly’, as it’s affectionately known, is almost unstoppable off-road. With full 6-wheel drive and a roaring B80 Rolls Royce engine similar to that in our FV432, the Stolly can run along at around 45 mph over any territory. At 9 tons in weight, it is also amphibious! Driven by jet-drives left and right, it can do up to 8 knots in the water! Come and experience being in the team’s favourite vehicle – she’s a beast!
The Alvis Stalwart is a ‘big boy’s toy’ of epic proportions! This amphibious High Mobility Load Carrier is absolutely unstoppable. This vehicle was designed to go and refuel tank groups in the worst places, and some squaddies actually rate these vehicles higher than the tanks themselves in terms of off-road performance.
With all that oomph from her 250 bhp Rolls Royce engine, we fly along round the airfield at top speed, usually around 35-40 mph.
