T-55AD (Iraq)


The museum calls that one a T-55K...

There's also the following two:

T-55 SOV/POL? ind SN 736KY4785

www.tankmuseum.org/ixb...lity_type=

T-55A SOV/DDR ind SN 47WN20306; cutaway hull

www.tankmuseum.org/ixb...lity_type=


Type 59 (the one with the 105mm gun and British smoke grenade launchers


The museum website hasnt acknowledged that one yet...


Type 69 (stored, sn and is this one former operated by Iraq or China?)


There's a Type 69-IIC SN B10861009

www.tankmuseum.org/ixb...lity_type=



Also Leopard 1A1A2 rn and s/n


I am aware of a Leopard 1 series III prototype, and two Canadian Leopard C2 (1A5)s? I have info on the prototype, and one of the C2s...

There are 3 Leopard 1s, a proto, a Canadian C2 and a German A1A2.

The other Type 69 and the L7 gun equipped Type 59 were seen in july 2003 by a collegue of me in the storage area. He told me the other Type 69 was in the public hall.

The T-72M1 is a M as far as I can see from the picture.

Lesley

The ATDU Ram is not one of the Museums vehicles, it was a range recovery and restored by the then CO of ATDU. The reason a Ram was chosen was availability and ISTR ATDU had an exchange Canadian Officer at the time.. I helped with the restoration and have some photos somewhere I can scan in.

Yes, it was from Salisbury Plain, though I think it had previously been on Pirbright, it was a long time ago!

I believe that it is this one :

"Unknown date, Ram recovered by the British Army (ATDU Bovington) from the Pirbright range. Photo John Gillman"

tankbarrel,
Thanks for the info! As P-O said, any pics would be welcome, as would any markings painted on the tank - such as War Department number, name, etc. Naturally if its from the original data plate that would be great!

Also, what happened to the Chieftain AVRE that was on display there! And can you help with what is on display where at the Camp, and help differentiate those from in-service vehicles on my list?

Thanks!

Neil
