This Chieftain is displayed on a section of bridge from a bridgelayer tank. It is a Mark 11C with Stillbrew armour around the turret front. It was previously a gate guardian at the Armoured Trials and Development Unit (ATDU). The museum’s Record for this vehicle shows it was issued from Ludgershall and then had a long list of users, nearly all in BAOR, including 13/18H (1969), 2RTR (1972), 4RTR (1975), QRIH (1982), 2RTR (1984), 1RTR (1985) before being a gate guardian from 1989 to 1998. It was put on the museum books in 2006.
