2 built, none saw service.

Frontal armor was 30cm I believe.

Carried a 105mm MA.

I love the oddball heavy armor that started popping up at the end of WW2.

Yup - Tortoise it is. Looks like the one at RAC Bovington. If I recall correctly, the only surviving one, at that.

That was at Bovington Tank Museum.

It was the first piece I ever wrote for the ACG website - check it out here. A few formatting errors have crept in since the site got updated, ignore those for now, I'll sort them out later.

The complete set of my photos is here.

Hope you like!
