Additional Information

the development Of the tank, which became known as the Chieftain, began in 1946. The development of the concept of a "universal tank" was a long and time came to a standstill, but the final result was the first true Main Battle Tank (MBT).

the Chieftain were mostly of standard design, the engine was installed in the rear of the chassis, in the middle housed the fighting compartment, in the front, middle, was the seat of the driver. The crew of the machine consisted of four people, a driver, gunner, loader and commander. However, the final design of the tank incorporated some radical features, among them was first used polulezhachee driver's seat and gives the car a lower silhouette, another unexpected advantage of this design was the bed comfortable for the driver. Rifled 120mm gun L11 was designed for firing projectiles separate loading, all explosives were stored in a cooled compartment, below the level of the ring tower, which increased the survivability of the machine. Both the tower and the hull were huge cast parts that had been protected from Russian tanks and artillery fire for many years. Another radical feature of the machine was the L60 multi-fuel engine, which unfortunately became the Achilles ' heel of the tank, deservedly leading to the unreliable reputation of Chiften. With a quality diesel engine, the Chieftain would be an order of magnitude better.

Mk.5 was the final modification that pumped improvements to previous variants, such as an improved commander's turret, an updated crew protection system against radioactive and biological threats, a fire control system, commander and gunner surveillance devices, increased ammunition and thermal protection for the gun barrel. This version was mass-produced for the British army, in addition, more than 900 Chieftains built to this standard were exported to Iran as Mk 5P. Chiften for many years was the most powerful tank of NATO.
