Tank Of The Day.

Developed from the Cruiser Tanks, then the Cromwell, these tanks were in service in the late war and afterwards.
The top one was a massively up-gunned and up-turreted version exported to the Iraqi Army in more conducive days; the bottom example is a Comet Tank, with a 76 mm high power gun, similar to the 17-pounder but not actually the 17-pounder (as I understand it). It is presented in Berlin Victory Parade colours and trim.
