Default Correct radio set for Canadian Centurion tanks?

I realize not WW2 related, I have also asked in the Armour forum, but what would have been the correct radio set for Canadian Centurion, Mk5 tanks, stationed in Canada? Any help would be appreciated

John

Default C42

Hello John

One of the radios used in the Centurion tank was the C42 radio.

More to follow.
