Nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg wurden in Großbritannien 442 Kampfpanzer „Cromwell“ zum Kampfpanzer „Charioteer“ umgerüstet. Der „Cromwell“ war zwar sehr beweglich, aber unterbewaffnet (75mm Panzerkanone L/39,5). Daher wurde auf die teilweise noch neuen Fahrgestelle ein neuer, kantiger Drehturm, mit einer 83,4mm (20 Pfünder) Panzerkanone L/70, die auch beim frühen Kampfpanzer „Centurion“ verwendet wurde, aufgesetzt.
Im Jahre 1956 erhielt das österreichische Bundesheer insgesamt 56 mittlere Kampfpanzer „Charioteer“ aus britischen Heeresbeständen. Die Fahrzeuge wurden ab 1959 im damaligen Panzerbataillon 4 in Graz/Steiermark eingesetzt, aber bereits im Jahre 1965 durch amerikanische M-47 ersetzt. Die Panzertürme wurden in feste Anlagen (FAn) als „verbunkerter Waffenstand mit einem ortsfesten Panzerturm CHARIOTEER“ verbaut. Einige davon waren bis ins Jahr 2000 im Dienst.

After World War II 442 „Cromwell“ tanks have been refurbished into “Charioteer” tanks in Great Britain. The „Cromwell“ was a very agile tank, with an inferior gun (75mm L/39,5). Therefore the mostly fabric new chassis received a newly developed, square-edged turret, armed with a 83,4mm (20 pounder) L/70 gun. The same was installed in the early “Centurion” tanks.
The Austrian Army received 56 medium tanks “Charioteer” from the British Army in 1956. All of them were deployed per 1959 in Panzerbataillon 4, located in Graz/Styria. They have been replaced by M-47 tanks in 1965 already. The "Charioteer" turrets were installed in fixed bunkers and some of them remained there until 2000.
