Thanks for the info Rick. Do you know if these Centurions come from the British Army, and where did they go after withdraw?

Added by Chris Hall Teesside. on 14 July 2009.

The centurions 618 in total, were bought directly from the manufacturer with the Mutual Defense Assistance Program. Some of the centurions are preserved, I believe that the most of the centurions were used as shooting targets.
