Centurion I ('World of Tanks') - Lego compatible COBI 3010 - 610 brick battle tank
OUT OF PRODUCTION FOR 2020 - LESS THAN FIVE LEFT IN STOCK
The Centurion, introduced in 1945, was the primary British main battle tank of the post-Second World War period. Its success led to it remaining in production into the 1960s, and seeing combat in the front lines into the 1980s. The chassis was also adapted for several other roles, and these have remained in service to this day. It became one of the most widely used tank designs, equipping armies around the world, with some modified versions still in service today (the South African National Defence Force's 'Olifant'). Its main armament is the 17- pounder (76.2mm) gun.
Manufacture began in January 1945, the first prototypes arriving in Europe in May 1945. It first entered combat with the British Army in the Korean War in 1950. It has seen action with several other armies for example during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 and with the Royal Australian Armoured Corps in Vietnam. In the Middle East, Israel used Centurions in the 1967 Six Day War, 1973 Yom Kippur War and during the 1978 and 1982 invasions of Lebanon and the Royal Jordanian Land Force used it at home and on the Golan Heights in the early 1970s.
Between 1946 and 1962, 4,423 Centurions were produced. It was replaced as the British Army's main battle tank by the Chieftain.
In the game ‘World of Tanks’ it is medium tank on the eighth level.
The block model has a rotating turret, a cannon that moves up and down and two trapdoors that open and close. Apart from a figure of a tank driver, the set includes accessories such as binoculars, a rucksack and a machine gun. It is the biggest tank in the World of Tanks collection.
