Two Supacat designed Jackals performed to applause at The British Military Tournament at London’s Earl’s Court last weekend. They played their role in an Afghanistan Combat Re-enactment by the Household Cavalry, which was judged the highlight of the show. The Jackal was also praised behind the scenes by service personnel performing at the show and the show’s production team, according to Supacat’s Exhibition and Demonstration Co-ordinator, Nigel Platt. “We were thanked by the service personnel for producing `such a brilliant truck` and meanwhile the Tournament’s production team were curious about how we’d designed it to be so quiet, which of course is one of its key design features for stealth operations”.
The Tournament played to 52,000 people over four performances and raised a net profit for ABF The Soldiers’Charity well into six figures, making it their biggest fund raising event this year. Nigel set up a charity box on Supacat’s stand and collected over £100 in donations in return for posters.
“Supacat was very pleased to support The British Military Tournament and congratulates the organisers for producing such a successful event to help Britain’s service men and women”, said Nick Ames, Managing Director, Supacat.
