Leyland Comet Diecast Model
South African Defense Force, South Africa, 1960s

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Leyland Comet   3.5"   1.75"

The Comet tank went into battle during WWII and in Korea where it sometimes fought next to what would be its replacement, the Centurion. The Centurion was based on the Comet design but was much heavier. The Comet continued to be used by British forces until the late 1950s and then began to be offered for sale to other countries. In 1954 South Africa began to acquire 26 Comet Tanks and over time converted some into armored battlefield maintenance and repair vehicles. Several Comets can be found in South African museums.
