This vehicle consists of an FV4005 turret mounted on a Centurion Mark 12 hull in May 2007 to give the appearance of an original FV4005 vehicle (source: Museum Vehicle Record). The turret was on display behind the museum car park for many years. The vehicle record cards show that the base Centurion was manufactured by Leyland and served with A Squadron 1RTR in BAOR in June 1968, A Squadron 9/12 Lancers in January 1969, QDG in December 1970, Berlin Armoured Squadron in June 1971, and was put on 2 ADS stock in December 1972. It was at 49 Field Regiment RA in November 1975, 27 Command Workshop in February 1980, Ludgershall in October 1980, and RAC Centre Bovington in September 1982 (manned by 3RTR then QRIH). In June 1998 it was gifted to DERA, and it was put on the museum books in 2005.
