Tank Commander
Terrain Training
UK Army
Armchair Travel was commissioned in 1998 by the UK Army to produce an interactive Virtual Travel tour of the army training range at Salisbury Plain.

Current computer-generated 3D terrain systems are still incapable of presenting the subtle texture and lighting details present in our 360° panoramic photos, which greatly assist tank commanders in determining the "lay of the land."

Russian Submarine
Foxtrot U-475
In April of 1995, Armchair Travel was asked to produce a set of panoramic photos showing this Russian Nuclear-Armed submarine.

Foxtrot U-475 was in active service with the Russian Baltic Fleet until 1st April 1994, having spent 27 years prowling the oceans on surveillance missions.

The vessel arrived in London from the naval base in Riga, Latvia, in July 1994 under the command of Captain Vitalij Burda. At 92 meters in length, this submarine was the Soviet Navy's biggest conventional submarine.
