Own your very own used part of the Chieftain tank!
Straight from The Tank Museum's Workshop, treat yourself to a used track pad from the Chieftain.
Britain’s Main Battle Tank for twenty years, Chieftain was one of the first true Main Battle Tanks, designed to replace both medium and heavy tanks in front line service.
Tank track pads crucially help minimise damage to roads and also provide vibration damping, noise reduction and better traction in a wide range of terrain conditions.
Please note the wear on the track pad varies.
Weight: These are heavy! Averaging 2230g!
A cool item to own and even had dirt caked on to it, but that’s all you got. You bought a track pad, you get a track pad, nothing else came with it. I though maybe there would be a card/pamphlet with it (suitable for display) with the history of the Cheiftan maybe even the history of the tank it came off of. I don't think 15 quid is a bad price for it either. I’ll keep my eye out for future cool things to come up for grabs.
Pad brilliant. Caked in dried on sand. Have already built a Tamiya Chieftain tank and coloured in urban colours.Mounting pad on a wooden plinth and building another tank and doing it in Gulf War colours and mounting it on the top of the pad. Brilliant to have a piece of history. Hope the put other tank parts up for sale..
It’s big, caked in original dirt, heavy and used. I love it and to own an original part from a Chieftain is just amazing!
One down, 5 bazylion other parts to go till I get my own tank. Brilliant idea, you can own a piece of history. Would recommend to any tank lover.
Brilliant idea, first part has arrived. My wife wants to know where I’m going to keep it when the rest arrives
