Q2 The Centurion was first used in Belgium soon after the war in Europe ended in May 1945

Q6 The ‘Green Mace’ was a heavy anti-aircraft gun.

Q7 Road wheels on a 25 ponder where: 2 to the gun, 2 to the limber and 4 on the quad. (It was my pleasure to drive one of these vehicles around London in 1957.)

Hi Silky

Your score is:
Q2 Yessal; but whats the main Gun?
Q6 Very good!(Y)
Q7 None, A gun does not have any wheels on it,as its a piece of Ordnance, Just the Carriage that has the wheels( Sorry Trick Question)
How are you getting on with Q1, Q3 & Q8 you should ask the Bombardier to help you on Q3 & Q8.

Good Luck Silky sal;

Question Four: The RONSON LIGHTER, as they tended to catch fire when shot at!!!

Not there yetsal; The German Army called them "Tommy Cookers" , The name for the M4 Sherman( it got the name 'Sherman' from the Brits) was called FireFly and it could take out the Tiger & Panther at 17,000 yds unlike the 76mm shell that just hit & when skywards.
Q3 - The M110
Q8 - 0 Mph

Nice one Scooby
Hi Bombardier,sal;
I knew that you would get Q3 & Q8 right I got on more question just for you, are you ready?

"what is in action when the Gun is out of action & out of action when the Gun is in action"?

Something to think about?
