Vobster's FV432 certainly won't be rushing into battle again as it now lies submerged at a depth of approximately 24 metres, making it a popular visit for more advanced divers.
What remains of our British Army Armoured Personnel Carrier is the all-steel shell with all the various hatches and doors removed to allow relatively safe penetration. Regardless, it's still pretty cramped in there so we'd strong recommend you don't go squeezing yourself into the APC any further than the main passenger compartment. If in doubt, take a peek in through the rear door and leave the penetration to the hardcore wreck divers with the prerequisite training and experience to explore in safety. Either way, exploration of this attraction benefits from a good torch as it can get very dark down there!
If you really do want to nose around inside the APC, the safest way to do it is to peer in through the large, round opening in the top. Shaped like a turrent mount, this opening provides divers with a very convenient entry and exit point should you wish to drop in and swim back out via the large entry point at the rear.
Whilst it's beyond the depth of Open Water divers, we're hoping it's presence will provide new divers with an incentive to further their training - we'd recommend a PADI Advanced Open Water
as a minimum level. Feeling even more adventurous? A PADI Wreck Diver
Specialty will give you the skills and knowledge to safely explore the impressive interior of this exciting attraction.
