The 183 mm is all fun and stuff, but what ios that battelship-grey Centurion in the back? Target practice vehicle maybe? The gun looks like a dummy tube welded on adn also something was added to the top of the turret.

I suppose this is good a place as any for this video, The History Guy goes to Bovington.  Some weird and wonderful AFVs indeed.
