Indeed they will, there have been some fairly negative reviews of the Dragon kit, but given it was the first 1/35 scale model and first came out some years ago I feel they are often overly critical.I have the Dragon version somewhere. Comparisons will be interesting.
There’s a display at Bovington which shows various barrels including the L1 and 11 for comparison. The L11 is slimmer, a consequence of improvements in metallurgy enabling a thinner barrel to withstand higher pressures.Comparison between the Aber aftermarket barrel and the OTB version of the Conqueror L1A2 120 mm barrel

showing the difference between the 20 pounder of the early 50’s and the L11 of Chieftain/Challenger illustrating the need for barrel length to achieve muzzle velocity and therefore penetration with the L1 A2.

I've got the Inaccurate Armour version in the stash. I often look at it and then put it away....Indeed they will, there have been some fairly negative reviews of the Dragon kit, but given it was the first 1/35 scale model and first came out some years ago I feel they are often overly critical.
Yes, same as on the M103.
It’s worth you editing the Wiki page as it is misleading.No.
Same requirement and idea's, design specs etc, but it's still a different gun.
You could put US ammo into a British gun. But it required a bit of work, such as sanding down the plastic cap on the charge. But the powder mix was different and produced a very violent recoil, which if memory serves, would trip out circuit breakers on the tank every few rounds, and the jump was rather spectacular. I'd have to re-read the report to confirm the above.
