Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

During 1941 the British Army considered there was a need for a tank with a large calibre gun and heavy armour. This led to the A33 being built in Britain and to an order being placed in America for 8,500 T14 Tanks. The T14 was essentially a heavily armoured M4 Sherman Tank incorporating many features of the M6 Heavy Tank. Two pilot models were completed in 1943 and this second one was sent direct to Britain in 1944 via the Chester Tank Depot. By this time British and American views had changed and the complete project was cancelled. This is the only example to have survived. It is missing part of its side-skirts.
