SOME HISTORY OF THE CENTURION TANK

Firstly delevoped by ACD Ltd in 1944, the Centurion just failed to see action in WW2. It saw action first time in Korea, since it have served in battle in India, South Africa, Vietnam, the Middle East and Suez. The Centurion owes much of its success to its capacity to be upgunned and uparmoured to meet the latest requirements.
In its final form, Mk 13, it was armed with the highly successful L7A2 105mm tank gun.
