British Comet tank rusting away in Cuba

This video showed up on NBC news of a British Comet tank that somehow ended up in Cuba prior to the Cuban Revolution.  It has been painted pink and sits in a farmers field rusting away.  Of course, NBC mis-identifies the vehicle as a “Sherman tank.” Click on the image below to watch the clip.

  1. Heh, my grandfather did tank training on a Comet during his time in the Cuban Army. Never thought I’d see it until now.
