This tank is in running order and regularly takes part in driving displays. While previously identified as a T-55 is has distinctive T-54 characteristics such as the ventilator dome on top of the turret in front of the loader’s hatch, the lack of a vent opening on the lower edge of the right turret side, and the lack of a bevel on the lower edge of the turret casting (source: T. Roberts).
