British main battle tank Chieftain Mk.2 started his story at early 1966, when first tank was delivered to the Brithish Army. The Chieftain was remained the most powerful NATO tank for most of the cold war and its arrival was a shock to the Russi[...]
Here are images of my Mk5c that I mounted on a diorama. It has had the rear engine deck corrected and a Clansman TUAAM box mounted on the right side of the turret. TUAAM = Tuning Unit Automatic Antenna Matching. The "c" after the Mk5 denotes Cla[...]
