Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

Marksman is a British anti-aircraft gun system developed by Vickers and consisting of a special turret armed with twin 35mm Oerlikon automatic guns and a Marconi Series 400 radar. It is intended to be fitted to current or obsolete tank chassis to provide low level cover from aircraft. The only examples in service are in the Finnish Army and have Marksman turrets mounted on obsolete T-55AM chassis. This vehicle has a Marksman turret on a Chieftain chassis and was probably put together by Vickers for demonstration purposes; it is in running order.
