Hobby Master HG5208 British Cruiser A34 Comet Mk. IV Tank - T335293, "Arrogant", Queens Own Hussars, Berlin Brigade, 1960 (1:72 Scale) "After [El] Alamein, we never had a defeat."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill

The Tank, Cruiser, Comet I (A34) was a British cruiser tank that first saw use near the end of World War II. It was designed to provide greater anti-tank capability to Cromwell tank squadrons. It was armed with a 77mm HV, a derivative of the 17 pounder, with the result it was one of the few British tanks with the firepower to challenge late war German designs. Seeing post World War II combat during the Korean war, the Comet remained in British service until 1958. Comets sold to other countries continued in some cases to operate into the 70s.

The 11th Armoured Division was the first to receive the new tanks in December 1944 and the only division to be completely refitted by the end of the war. Because of its late arrival, the Comet did not participate in any major battles though it did see combat against the Germans. The Comet was involved in the crossing of the Rhine and the later Berlin Victory Parade in July 1945. The Comet's maximum speed of 32 miles per hour was greatly exploited on the German Autobahns.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a British cruiser tank, A34 Comet Mk. IV tank that was dubbed "Arrogant" and attached to the Queens Own Hussars, then a part of the Berlin Brigade during 1960. Pre-order! Ship Date: January 2020.

Historical Account: "Queen's Own" - The Queen's Own Hussars (QOH) was formed in 1958 at Tidworth with the combining of the 3rd King's Own Hussars and the 7th Queen's Own Hussars. Squadrons of the QOH were sent to different locations to take part in various activities but in 1960 they were reunited in Munster, Germany where they remained until 1962. While in Germany, the QOH was part of the British contingency stationed in the British sector of West Berlin as a deterrent to Soviet aggression.
