Peter Goring

Harry Goring was an English footballer. Born in Bishop's Cleeve, one of 6 brothers. Goring first played for local Southern League side Cheltenham Town, making a name for himself as a prolific centre forward, he was signed by First Division Arsenal in January 1948, although he spent the next eighteen months playing in the reserve side. After impressing on the club's tour of Brazil in the summer of 1949, Goring made his first-team debut against Chelsea on 24 August 1949. In his first season, Goring was the club's second-top goalscorer in the League, with 21 goals in 29 matches. Arsenal only did win the FA Cup, beating Liverpool 2 -- 0 in the final. Goring continued to play up front for the Gunners, but was displaced by Cliff Holton in 1951-52, his form noticeably dropped. However, he fought his way back into the side the following season, where he scored ten goals in 29 appearances, as Arsenal won the League on goal average. However, in 1953-54 his goalscoring touch deserted him and he only played nine matches without scoring a single goal.

Arsenal manager Tom Whittaker still had faith in Goring, after switching him to right half, Goring became a first team regular once again. He missed only six matches over the next two seasons, was picked for a Football Association XI that toured the West Indies in the summer of 1955; the latter years of Goring's career were afflicted by age and injuries. In all he played 240 matches for Arsenal. Goring moved on in the summer of 1959 to Boston United in a swap deal that took Alan Ashberry to Arsenal, before retiring from playing. After retiring from football Goring returned to Cheltenham to run the family butcher's shop, Wheeler & Goring on Tewkesbury Road, his other love of sport became the golfing coach at Cleeve hill golf course. In September 1968 Goring was appointed manager of Forest Green Rovers he stayed in charge of the club for 11 seasons until he resigned in October 1979, during which time he took them from the Gloucestershire County League to Hellenic League, he died in 1994, aged 67.

He was buried at St Michaels church Bishops Cleeve. First Division: 1952–53 FA Cup: 1949–50 Harris, Jeff. Hogg, Tony. Arsenal Who's Who. Independent UK Sports. ISBN 1-899429-03-4

BTR-80

The BTR-80 is an 8×8 wheeled amphibious armoured personnel carrier designed in the USSR. It was adopted in 1985 and replaced the previous vehicles, the BTR-60 and BTR-70, in the Soviet Army, it was first deployed during the Soviet–Afghan War. The Soviets-based the BTR-80 on the BTR-70 APC, it has a single 260-hp, V-8 turbocharged, water-cooled, diesel engine, an improvement over the twin gasoline engines installed in the BTR-60 and BTR-70 vehicles. The reconfigured rear portion of the hull accommodates the single engine; the Soviets removed the roof chamfers of the modified BTR-70, raised the rear, squared off the rearward-sloping engine compartment. Standard equipment includes TNPO vision blocks, TNP-B and TKN-3 optical devices for the driver and commander, an OU-3GA2M infrared search light, six 81 mm smoke grenade launchers 902V "Tucha", a radioset, an intercom, hydrojets for amphibious propulsion; the Soviets modified the truncated cone turret used on the BTR-70 for the BTR-80 by redesigning the mantlet.

This allows the 14.5 mm KPVT and coaxial 7.62 mm PKT machine guns to be elevated to a maximum of 60 degrees. This high angle of fire is useful in engaging targets on steep slopes, in urban fighting, for engaging low slow flying air targets; the Soviets had modified the design and positioning of the firing ports. The forward firing ports now sit in angled recesses, which allows infantry to fire to the front of the vehicle; the redesigned side doors are split horizontally. The upper portion opens forward; the lower portion opens down. Six smoke grenade projectors are mounted on the rear of the turret; the BTR-80 can climb a vertical step of 0.5 m. In 1984, the Soviets began production of a diesel-engined variant of the BTR-70, which they called the BTR-80; the Soviets have retrofitted some BTR-70s with several of the improvements incorporated into the BTR-80, including the high-angle-of-fire turret. The twin doors are designed to allow the infantry to disembark while the vehicle is in motion, allow the infantry inside to exit from one side if the other is receiving fire.

The 30mm Cannon variants are effective against most targets apart from main battle tanks, against which they can still cause significant damage to optics and important systems. The main gun is not stabilized, so accurate fire on the move is limited to low speeds, the turret's rotation mechanism is manually operated; the gunner sits in a roof-mounted chair located above the flat floor behind the driver/commander and two passengers, before the passenger bench. The gunner's station is uncharacteristically spacious for a Soviet armored vehicle; the gunner is equipped with both an infrared night sight. BTR-80 – armoured personnel carrier. BTR-80K – command vehicle APC with telescopic antenna mast, TNA-4 navigation device and R-163-50У series of radio equipment. BTR-80M – improved model with DMZ-238M2 engine of 240 hp, a longer hull and new tires. In production since 1993, it is understood that only a small number were produced until the original engine was ready for production again. BTR-80A – IFV with 2A72 30 mm gun and 300 rounds as primary weapon.

The turret is called BPPU and is equipped with sights 1PZ-9 and TPN-3 or TPN-3-42 "Kristall". In production and service since 1994. BTR-80S – variant of the BTR-80A for the Internal Troops of the MVD, equipped with a KPVT 14.5-mm machine gun and 7.62 mm PKT in the turret. BTR-80AK – command variant of the BTR-80A, with two whip antennas in the rear corners and with only one firing port on the right hull side. BRDM-3 – armoured reconnaissance/surveillance vehicle, based on the BTR-80AK and with a new day/night vision device in front of the commander's position; the crew consists of six men. Note that in some Western sources, the name BRDM-3 is incorrectly used for the 9P148 ATGM carrier. BTR-82 – latest production version with improved armour, spall liners, more modern night vision device TKN-4GA, GLONASS navigation system and a more powerful engine of 300 hp; the original armament is retained but is now installed in the BPPU turret of the BTR-80A/BTR-82A. The prototype of the BTR-82 was shown for the first time in November 2009.

BTR-82A – latest production version with improved armour, spall liners, more modern night vision device TKN-4GA-02, 2A72 30 mm gun, GLONASS navigation system and a more powerful engine of 300 hp. The prototype of the BTR-82A was shown for the first time in November 2009; the Ministry of Defense of Russia has formally adopted the armored personnel carrier BTR-82A. The corresponding order was signed by Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu in early 2013. In a Syrian government TV channel report, BTR-82A is seen in battle in Syria around September 2015; the video shows BTR-82A crew members speaking Russian. It is believed that Russian armoured vehicle units have been directly fighting anti-government groups in Syria. Russia integrated the AU-220M Baikal remote turret to the BTR-82A fitted with an autocannon firing the 57x348SR mm shells at 120 rpm; the type tests of the updated BTR-82A armored personnel carrier have been completed as of April 2019. Since 2019, all vehicles of the type will receive additional protection and a new fire control system with a thermal imager.
