One of if not the best tank of the '50s, '60s & '70s, the Centurion is widely considered to be one of the most successful post-war tank designs, and it remained in production into the 1960s and seeing combat in the front lines into the 1980s.

The Centurion was designed during World War II to provide a tank that could do the work of both the Infantry and Cruiser tank classes. It was designed to have firepower and protection that would allow it to survive with the latest German types of tanks and self-propelled guns seen during the war. The first Centurions entered service too late to see action in World War II. Initially, they were equipped with the 17-pdr (76.2-mm) cannon which was one of the best tank guns used by the Western Allies during the war. By the time Centurions saw combat in 1950 during the Korean War, they had been up-gunned to the more powerful 20-pdr (83.4-mm) cannon. This remained the standard gun on Centurions until the early 1960s when they were up-gunned with the 105-mm L7 cannon.

Nine sprues & a hull in tan injection-molded plastic, separate tracks in brown plastic. A photo Etched sheet, cotton thread for cable, and a small decal sheet all come in the box.
