PATTON

The M47 Patton first entered service with the US Army in 1952 after an earlier version had been rushed into use for the Korean War. Over 8,500 were built and although it had a short operational life it was a considerable success despite the weakness of having a limited range because it used 3 gallons of petrol to the mile 

The Museum's example was recovered from a tank gunnery range just prior to its destruction and later restored into running order 

The footage in the video below was taken at the the Museum in September 2015

CENTURION

The British Centurian tank came into operational use in the late 1940's and at the time was the best tank ever produced. It saw service all round the world including in the Korean and Vietnam Wars and most of the conflicts in the Middle East. Some later models still remain in use today

Between 1946 and 1962, 4,423 Centurions were produced, consisting of 13 basic marks and numerous variants. In British Army service it was replaced by the Chieftain. The Museum's Mk 5 version was obtained from the Swiss Army
