It is the biggest and nosiest event in the calendar for the Norfolk Tank Museum.
This year's Amourfest saw two days of non-stop military mayhem as the normally dormant museum exhibits came to life.
In addition to the museum's vehicles, an army of tanks, armoured cars and jeeps - from the Cold War era to the Gulf War - from visiting historical groups descended on Forncett St Peter, near Long Stratton.

The museum's two Centurion tanks were live and smoking in the arena along with the Saladin armoured car.
There was also an air soft display and living history groups also attended.
On Saturday evening a 1940s-themed Hangar dance was held with live music from the 19-piece Ipswich band The Swing Machine.
Stephen Machaye, curator of the museum which is dedicated to preserving military heritage, said: 'It has gone absolutely fantastically.'
