The Centurion Tank
From 1943 the British began the design of a tank that was similar to the German Panther tank. In 1945 the design emerged as the Centurion. It was last used in action by the British Army in 1991 during the Gulf War, having been first blooded by the British during the Korean War in 1950 and subsequently during the Suez Campaign of 1956. This work details all the variants of the Centurion used in conflicts as well as covering the specialist variants last used by the British in the Gulf War.
From the birth of the tank to unmanned vehicles and the tanks of the future, The Tank Book offers a truly definitive look at over 400 different tanks, produced in association with The Tank Museum. Take an up-close look at British, US, Russian, and French tanks, meet key designers such as Mikhail Koshkin and Sir William Tritton, and understand the complex mechanisms behind such vehicles as the Centurion, Hellcat, SV Scout, and T-14 Armata.
Few tank designs have been as effective, versatile and long-lived as that of the British Centurion. Conceived during the Second World War as the answer to the superior German Tiger and Panther tanks and to the lethal 88mm gun, this 52-ton main battle tank incorporated the lessons British designers had learned about armoured fighting vehicles during the conflict, and it was free of the major faults that had impaired the other British tank designs of the time.
