The British Valiant Infantry Tank

The British Valiant Infantry Tank

The British Valiant Infantry Tank was a proposed upgraded of the Valentine Infantry Tank. The upgrade included a large turret, partially constructed from cast steel that could be fitted with a 57mm 6pndr main gun or 75mm. It had a modified Spitfire Meteor engine called the Meteorite by Rolls-Royce. Originally designed by Vickers in 1943, development was passed on to Birmingham Carriage & Wagon who in turn passed it on to Ruston & Horton who completed the first pilot vehicle in mid-1944, but by this stage the War was coming to an end and the project ended in 1945.
