Since its introduction in the 1960s, it has been the most common variant, being used for transporting infantry on the battlefield. FV432s have been used to portray historical vehicles, and are often mocked up to resemble World War II or Cold War era military vehicles in film productions and TV series.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Chieftain Mk.5 Final production variant, 750hp L60 Mark 8A, with upgrades to the NBC protection system, weight 54 long tons, 1975.
