[Premium Shop] The Australian Centurion Returns!

Tank Commanders,

Tested in fierce combat in the difficult terrain of Vietnam, the  VIII Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC  is ready for your command.

This vehicle comes with - in addition to the familiar, reliable turret armour of the VIII Centurion Mk. I  - an improved power-to-weight ratio and stronger frontal hull armour. This makes it even tougher in hull-down!

VIII Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC

What's Hot

  • Good penetration on standard and Premium ammo

  • Monster in hull-down! Reliable turret armour; stronger frontal hull armour than  VIII Centurion Mk. I  
  • Good acceleration with higher power-to-weight ratio than  VIII Centurion Mk. I  
  • High ammo capacity
  • Decent damage per minute

What's Not

  • Low alpha damage
  • Lower HP pool than  VIII Centurion Mk. I  
  • Weak side armour
  • Lacking side skirts: more vulnerable to HE and HEAT rounds from the side
  • Slow gun traverse

 

The VIII Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC  saw fierce combat in the jungles of Vietnam, where it supported the 1st Australian Task Force (1 ATF) in the Battle of Coral-Balmoral against North Vietnamese forces.

RAAC Centurions enabled 1 ATF to hold their ground and even launch counterattacks against regimental-strength North Vietnamese army units in what was one of the biggest actions in the war for Australian forces.

Over nearly a month of fighting, with the VIII Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC  to rely on, 1 ATF inflicted heavy casualties on North Vietnamese forces, forcing them to postpone any planned attacks on Saigon.

What's new about this Centurion?

The  VIII Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC   comes with improved frontal hull armour and higher power-to-weight ratio, making this Centurion even more of a monster to contend with in hull-down position.

Additional features include a large infrared-capable spotlight on the mantlet and improved machinegun. However, these are only cosmetic features in World of Tanks.

Why is this Centurion missing its side skirts?

The difficult terrain of Vietnam caused debris such as vegetation and mud to build up under the side skirts and track guards. That would have slowed down or perhaps even stopped the tank's movement, which meant all supporting units would have had to slow down or stop until it was ready to go again.

Such a unit would have made for an easy target, just the same as any World of Tanks vehicle with tracks broken and repair kit on cooldown.

What's with the huge extension on its back?

That would be its external fuel tank, which could carry up to 100 litres of petrol.
