This M46 was supplied to Great Britain for evaluation, and is believed to have been tested at FVRDE in 1951, as tank test 4094 (source: Museum Vehicle Record). It was put on the museum books in 1962, and now has a tiger face painted on the glacis plate, as seen on examples that served in the Korean War.
