Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

The FV4202 was an experimental vehicle based on the hull of a Centurion tank. Three were built early in 1956 by Leyland Motors. Its purpose was to investigate some features of the proposed design for the FV4201 Chieftain Tank programme. These included a new design of turret which dispensed with the need for a mantlet, and the provision of a reclining driver’s position. It does not have its original gun fitted and it is missing its side-skirts.
