Tank prototypes from the United Kingdom, 1919-1945

Post subject: Tank prototypes from the United Kingdom, 1919-1945

Hello,

I'm looking for a list of UK tank prototypes developed between 1919 and 1945 and still existing. I have this list for now :

-Multi-Turreted Heavy Tank Vickers A1E1 Independent
-Heavy Tank TOG 2
-Heavy Assault Tank Tortoise (A39)
-Infantry Tank Valiant (A38)
-Heavy Assault Tank Excelsior (A33)
-Cavalier (24)
All these tanks are exposed/stored at Bovington

Are there other prototypes still existing?

Thanks

Pierre-Olivier

I think Bovington has a Black Prince (A43) Which was a Churchill widened to accept a larger turret for a 17 Pdr

There is another "Black Prince", at least the hull, owned by the Cadman Brothers.

What about the Centurion Mk.1 at the TM? Is that a prototype?

That's the problem with late prototypes, I don't know if I must consider these as WW2 tanks or post-war ones. I included IS-3 in the Russian tanks list because the IS-3 did participate to fights in August 1945 in Mandchuria.

So, should I include the Centurion prototype in the list? That means that I should also include the ARL 44 in the French WW2 tanks list.. What are your thoughts about this?

Pierre-Olivier

Is the Vickers D3E1 Wheel Track Tank a prototype?

EDIT : After a quick check, yes.

Thanks JH for the information about the Black Prince hull from the Cadmans, I've found a picture of it.
