Looks like the 548 is in the old American desert scheme, but the Scorps are in something else. No standardisation?

The Scorps, at the time were powered by the Jaguar 4.2 litre engine the same as ours. The running gear had a slight modification to make it more robust and the turret had powered traverse. American comms harness and sets, hence the long whip antennas, the crewmans helmet had the pressel switch on the bottom of the left earpiece!

I can never remember a heater in the 548 ever working!
