Default Knackered old army tanks

Hello folks, my friend and i recently went above ground and found these tanks. I do not know anything about tanks so sorry I cannot give info even though I tried reseacrh. Goggle was not being my pal that day Anyway.. these are used as targets as they are on a live MOD bombing range but it was a bank holiday and all the nice soldiers must have been having a lie in or down the pub that day. So here is some pictures. Sorry if this is not an appropriate report, I know they are not buildings or places but I think some of you people like things like this...

I think this is what they used in Northern Ireland



I do not know what this is, someone told me it was something called a Self-propelled Gun:






Looks like they had a nasty accident with this one!



Close up details of big holes, I assume they are from gun bullets:



And the last one:




I bet someone knows what these things are, thanks for looking and best wishes
