Not too sure, but maybe Obyekt 740?

 

Correct but can you give the non-obyekt name?

Nope. I know there was a thing called the K-90 but I was under the impression they were different tanks.

Yep, the K-90 competed with it during trials. The name I knew it as was P-39.

One of the only tanks I've ever dug up which Joco had never heard of. Any guesses?

A 4.5'' autoloading gun on a Conqueror chassis. Does it actually have any designation?

Correct, the source describes it as a 'platform of artillery pieces' so I've been calling it the Conqueror Gun Platform. Joco called it something different since then but I think Gun Platform is the closest to a real designation.

This is the source I've seen of it, it certainly isn't well known and I don't think it's on Wikipedia: http://i.imgur.com/NOsgiYP.jpg 

There was some mention of it on the PC forums a few years ago, I followed that up, found the French source and picked out the bits regarding the tank before posting it here: http://forum-console...s/#entry1979546

A turret less Valentine previously used in a quarry, which was used by the Greek Militia, fitted with an improvised armored casement from which an operator could fire a Bren gun.

I looked at the suspension, confirmed that it was that of a Valentine, then checked with all known variants and none of those matched. Eventually I found an article which talked about this.
