Alvis Saladin

Serial No: 01 CC 38
Period: Post-WWII
Reference: X003-6768
Museum: Cosford
Location: National Cold War Exhibition
On Display: Yes

The Saladin had a protracted development before going into production in 1958. It entered service a year later and served in all parts of the world. In many politically sensitive colonial situations, its heavy gun allowed it to provide effective support as a ‘wheeled tank’ where a fully tracked vehicle would have been difficult to justify.
