The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Tell me what it is and I'll put the whole clip of all the relics on;
Cromwell chassis, but I'm not sure about the turret.
Possibly a Centurion turret, def Cromwell family chassis
Charioteer, Cromwell chassis witha QF17 pdr gun, tank destroyer. ( I think)
It's not a Cruiser Mk VIII Challenger, is it?
Thats what I would put my pfennigs on!
WW2 Tank Relics - YouTube
it appears at 3.20.
Charioteer, m'thinks, no I'm wrong turret slopes the wrong way and the gun looks a bit weenie for a 20pdr, A30 Challenger
Challanger had a more boxy slab sided turret.
Charioteer, aka, a bloody silly idea when we already had the rather superlative Centurion
llech is correct (it's a 20 pounder gun though!)
I stand corrected, must've been the 20pdr they put in the Centurion.
From Wiki, it was for T.A. units to play on!
Which country used old Cromwells/comets with hulls burried for static pill boxes? Didn't they use Russian turrets on them?
