This T-54 was captured by the Israeli Army from the Syrian Army and sent to Britain for evaluation. It was restored by 18 Command Workshops between September 1976 and May 1977. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record).
This T-54 Model 1951 appears to be in poor condition. It is presumed to have been captured during the 1973 Yom Kippur War when Syria invaded the Golan Heights.
