Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This SU-100 is of Czechoslovak manufacture. It was captured at Port Said from the Egyptian Army by 3 Para, part of the British Parachute Brigade. This was during Operation Musketeer, the Anglo-French landings in Egypt in November 1956, part of the Suez Campaign. The Egyptian SU-100s which fought at Suez were detached from the 1st Armoured Brigade Team which had been fighting the Israelis at Abu Aweigila in the Sinai. It was shipped to the United Kingdom for evaluation on 8 November 1956. Once in Britain it proved of considerable interest to military intelligence since the gun was the same as that mounted in the contemporary Russian main battle tank, the T-54. It was delivered to the Museum on 25 January 1958. It is displayed in Egyptian markings. The driver’s hatch is open so the interior can be seen. It is in running order and took part in Tankfest 2006.
