    We had a bridge layer Centurion (without turret of course) in the Regiment. It was a beast listening to. I must admit i felt quite humble when standing next to it with engine running. I will never forget that vehicle. Knowing the driver had a very limited view.

    the meteor sounds great when the vehicle is driving, really smooth and powerful but i have to admit my favourite tank engine is the leyland L60 from the chieftain, the noise it makes is fantastic

    Wow A two-stroke multi fuel engine........

    But from reading about it i can see it was not without it's problems. Anyway, that must sound truly awesome. Can't find anything on engine size though. Two-stroke tank

    The condition looks A1, its going to be a top class restoration by the looks of it.
