Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Thanks for the info and offer of help Stephen. I for one may come back begging but will see what I can do myself first. I will probably also "sponge" off Andy a bit (if he doesn't mind) as we are both seeking Blues and Royals info.

Cheers
Kevin

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Andy - agreed it can be a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack, and so much more difficult without the ERM. I'm in a similar boat trying to find a vehicle associated with Dad - if indeed there were any!! I only have a distant memory of Chieftains in BAOR bearing in mind I was a youngster at t...

Re: Chieftain Mk 5 Guide

John
Based on the stowage diagram (Stephen’s Chinese eye thread) I think the box in turret basket is for smoke grenades/bombs?
Sorry but I can’t help on the other bits.

Re: Chieftain Mk 5 Guide

Once again, thankyou Mark.

Re: Chieftain Mk 5 Guide

Thanks Mark. Back to antennae (sorry). Was there a prescribed configuration or a matter of personal preference? To explain my meaning, I’m seeing pics of 1 RH side on ATU box with 1 opposite, ie forward LH on the small “step like” position, alternatively 1 Rh with a 2nd on the aft LH Mount behind lo...

Re: Chieftain Mk 5 Guide

John - I think your "rotary switch" is actually a convoy light? Believe it could have either white or red illumination depending on how much, or how little, light one wanted to show the enemy.

Re: Chieftain Mk 5 Guide

The kit contains 2 aerial mounting bosses. One is positioned RH turret, forward of the commanders stowage b...
