Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

The Conway was an experimental tank destroyer, also known as FV4004. It was meant to equip British armoured formations in response to the Soviet Josef Stalin III Heavy Tank, pending the introduction of the Conqueror Heavy Tank. This was the only prototype built, based on the hull of a Centurion Mark III Tank. It had a four man crew and was armed with one 120mm L1A1 gun and a machine-gun. Final assembly was undertaken at ROF Barnbow. It arrived from the Royal Military College at Shrivenham in April 1969. It was displayed at one time towing a mono-trailer.
