Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/35 Plastic British Army Chieftan Mk. 5 Tank from Tamiya.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.

First announced in 1970, the Mk. 5 was the main type of Mk. in service in
the mid 1970s. Further engine modifications brought the power output up to
750 bph, with consequent improvement in overall performance. Soon, revision of
the ammunition stowage arrangements enabled 64 rounds to be stowed. Splash
plates were added on the glacis as well.
