In 1971 Iran placed an order for some 700 Chieftains, Marks 3/3P and 5/5P. Between 200 and 300 were captured by Iraq during fighting in the Middle East, many of which were undamaged, and this one, a Mark 5/5P, is likely to have come from that source. It has sections of armour cut out of its turret and hull and replaced with tin plate (source: R. Stickland).
