By Dick Taylor & The Tank Museum
The Chieftain was the British Army's main battle tank from 1966 to 1986, providing the backbone of its heavy armour during the cold war.
Incorporating a host of revolutionary design features, Chieftains saw combat in the 1980s during the Iran-Iraq war; Kuwaiti Chieftains fought the Iraqi army during the invasion of 1990; and British Army specialist engineer Chieftains were used in 1991 during Desert Storm.
The Haynes Chieftain Tank Manual is published in association with The Tank Museum and written by an ex-Chieftain tank commander who was granted full access to The Tank Museums Chieftain collections.
