    This Chieftain look-a-like is one of the 274 Chieftain FV-4030/2 Khalid which was beeing built for Jordania in 1981 ... a really rare thing here over in Europe
    that is a mk 5 chieftain , which like all Jordanian tanks is called Khalid
    IT IS NOT AN FV4030/2 ,,I know becouse i did the trials on FV4030/2 it basicly has a challenger engine and gearbox
    the back end is totaly diferent to any mk of chieftain ,,compare these pics to yours
    the FV4030/2 has a mk 8 chieftain turret ,,no search light ,an extra stowage bin in its place
    no hole for a coax .50 cal
    and a wholy new design of rear end ,new widder tracks and a modified final drive ,and due to improved suspention the road wheel spaceing is different

    cheers from bagdad ian

    here are some better pics of the FV4030/2 khalid at the tank musium in bovington
    this was actualy a trials tank from MVEE chertsey,and it has been painted in the colours of the royal jordanian army

    i think these pics clearly show the diferences between a MK 5 chieftain and a FV4030/2 KHALID
    cheers ian
