    Sadly, explosive solutions are disallowed from the competition.

    My first thoughts are using the population of Leicester or some other midlands town/city en masse.

    We're as far from the sea as it's possible to get here.
    Much as I like the human wave suggestion, unless these AFVs are coming by air you'll need a far more efficient mobilisation system.
    Coastal communities may have to take up this slack. The Bognor Banzai Battalion, Dover Track-Jammers etc. (I'd suggest Larndan & its supposed mass transport network, but, y'know, Southern Rail? Nah.)

    Poppycock have they not seen what a box of de headed swan vestas,firework gunpowder and a cobbled together fuse can do to a Panzer III Aifix model

    Choke the engine from starting by stuffing rags up the exhaust....reportedly practiced by Russian partisans.

    Hard to achieve on the Tiger, having vertical exhaust stacks

    I would add after seeing the previous post,construct an anti tank trap 20 miles minimum breadth.

    That's the closest anyone's got to a ban for months...o_O

    I'm off to actually read the specs for this competition now.
    Think it's rather splendid, this open call for ideas. Wouldn't you just love to be the civil serpent sifting through ideas from persistent loonies who think they're Barnes Wallis...

    Actually it's not one but several civil servants, and some American chaps possibly.

    Meanwhile, and happily assuming the mantle of persistent loony, takes a few hours of clicking links on the MOD website to collect all the terms and conditions about what they think they want but I like their "Short Form Contract" ( 20180530_Short_Form_Contract__V1.9 ) which has this gem:

    " 14. Personnel

    a. You shall tell Us who is working on the Contract.

    b. If We think that anyone is unsuitable to do the work under this Contract for any reason We shall notify You in writing that We shall:

    (1) refuse them admission to Our premises
    (2) require You to end Your involvement with them under this Contract "

    Anyway, I was thinking that the late, great, Tex Avery would win it easily.

    I was thinking about nitrogen filled soap bubbles, but, dash it all, I've just ruined my chances because I read somewhere in the terms and conditions that I'm not allowed to tell anyone...

    I shall tell Me: exit.....

    Quite brilliant.
    That, right there, is a clause forged in bitter experience.
    "Oh, so that's the chap who's come in for the trials, Is it?... Can anyone tell me why he's accompanied by an FSB* Colonel & two chaps from the Chinese embassy?? "

    *No, of course I don't mean the Federation of Small Businesses... Pedants.
