This third modification of the British “Centurion” tank was equipped with the QF 20 (83.8mm) pounder cannon, which is a very unique weapon indeed: It was an extremely powerful main cannon produced in opposition to the infamous German 88mm KwK.43 cannon. It came equipped with a cannon that utilised the so-called “sabot” rounds, in which the projectile was encased in a detachable holder – the sabot. While it came too late to actively participate in World War II, it proved its effectiveness in other conflicts like the Korean War and Vietnam. In War Thunder, this vehicle will take its rightful place at rank IV, where it will be a worthy opponent for the late modifications of the Panther and T-44.

Questa terza modifica del carro britannico “Centurion” era equipaggiata con il cannone QF 20 (83,8 millimetri), che era un’arma molto particolare: E’ stato un potentissimo cannone principale prodotto in opposizione al famigerato 88 millimetri KwK 43 tedesco . Esso utilizzava i cosiddetti proiettili “sabot”, in cui il proiettile era racchiuso in un supporto rimovibile – il sabot. Arrivò troppo tardi per partecipare attivamente alla Seconda Guerra Mondiale, si è dimostrata la sua efficacia in altri conflitti come la guerra di Corea e del Vietnam. In War Thunder, questo veicolo avrà il suo giusto posto al grado IV, dove sarà un degno avversario per le ultime versioni del Panther e T-44
