After WW2, the UK introduced the first ever main battle tank - the legendary Centurion. British engineers managed to combine the best qualities of several classes of tanks: sturdy armour, decent mobility and good firepower, all in one neat package. Thanks to its outstanding performance, the Centurion remained in service all around the globe till the very end of the century. In War Thunder, there are several Centurion variants that can be found in the British, the Swedish and the Israeli tech trees. But what’s their designated combat role?

    • @xXxjesusmanxXx yes i know and i can partly understand it when it comes to for an example volumetrics. But when it comes to repair costs i just dont get it. Im not able to make a loss with any tank, exept for some especially expensiv tanks. But these tanks were expensive before anyways so i just dont get it. I have to say i play only with premium, but i think long term you cant get around an premium account if you want to play more than once a week.

    • Slowest compared to other mbt‘s but a faster one at its tier. Comon, it wasn‘t so hard so understand. And i dont know how you ppl are complaining about repair costs. They are totally fine in my oppinion, im making good amount of sl in every match with every tank i played so far.

    • @ObeyObay I wouldnt say the t55 is better. It's more compact but that's about it. The cent has a better gun and when facing t55s it would often win. Just look at Israeli Vs Iran and the centurion slapped a lot

    • @JwwProd I agree it's one of the greatest of all time. These guys saying an Abrams would beat it simply aren't smart. Its not a fair comparison, they should realise it's one of the greatist based on its time. I love it alot

      Okobong DinkoOkobong Dinko5 сағат бұрын
    • @JwwProd I mean that’s kinda literally what I said but I think that the t54 outmatched the centurion in terms of armour

      ObeyObayObeyObayАй бұрын
    • @ObeyObay Obviously the Centurion isn’t going to match a modern MBT in combat. But that’s logical since what you have to remember is that the Centurion was introduced in the second half of the 40s (Right after WW2 ended) while modern MBTs like the M1 Abrams, Leopard 2, Challenger 1 & 2, etc where introduced around the 80s/90s (Challenger 2 was introduced in 2001), that’s like a 30-40 years gap, so obviously a tank introduced in the 80s/90s would be way more powerful and advanced than a tank introduced in the 40s/50s. But in it’s peak the Centurion was basically the principal of tank design and has a massive legacy and modern MBTs probably wouldn’t be the way they are now if it wasn’t for tanks like the Centurion.

    • Yep, pretty much the best Centurion in the game atm. Not only does it have the best engine, and therefore power-to-weight ratio out of all Centurions, but it also gets 2nd gen thermals for the gunner and commander. Not to mention M426 (aka 105mm DM63) APFSDS, all at 9.0. Far as the Centurions are concerned, the Strv 105 is the closest one to the Olifant Mk2 in terms of capability having the same top sabot and also has 2nd gen gunner thermals, but it has no CITV and has a weaker engine.

  • i love the centurions, truly one of my favourite tanks. But decent armour? like hell. It might hold up against WW2 tanks or a poorly placed shot but I never rely on the armour in a centurion. Power creep has made it necessary to place much more calculated

  • Ive noticed with aircraft with broken or shot off wings, the physics of the crippled plane may not be that accurate. Indeed gravity takes hold, however often the surviving good wing leans towards the Earth in a dive. This I believe is not right, being that drag and lift forces are more so on this one good wing and therefore be wanting to trail in direction of motion and towards the sky.

  • Well, you grind a high tier tank with THERMAL sight. BUT when you purchase it, drive it to the battlefield, you found out that, your tank don't have thermal Sight. You have to research for it, and you fight in night game. Well made Gaijin...well made...you push a blind man to a war, and you said he was fine. That's the experience I am experiencing now.

  • The famous Centurion family....Her Majesty's heavy weight knight. Not the best tanks in the History and not even my favourite vehicle family but at that time these were really decisive tanks and I kinda like them not as much as the German Leopards or the French AMXs. However, to be honest the Olifant Mk. II looks neat, my favourite from the whole family for me a bit similar to the Abrams at the frist sight but only in board strokes. Or with those armor wedges on the turret, looks like a Leopard2A5 but also just in board strokes. Thanks for the video, and have a nice day!

I regularly hit the speed limit on cents (35km/h so about 22mph), and sure they bleed speed like any tank in turns, but if you turn in sections rather than try to turn all at once, they're pretty good at keeping it up, and they do accelerate fairly well.
