Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Has a powerful 165mm gun that fires shells with the explosive mass of 15.87 kg, equal to 20.31k g TNT, one hit can always deal serious damage to the enemy vehicles.
  • ROMOR-A ERA equivalent protection against 30 mm kinetic energy munitions and 300 mm chemical energy munitions.
  • The dozer blade in front it can provide additional protection, especially protect the lower glacis.
  • Low muzzle velocity can allow the trajectory to hit some enemies hide behind the slope, especially in AB.
  • Composite side skirts.
  • Acceptable reload time.
  • Can help repair teammates.
  • Very useful in the close range combat, especially in urban warfare.
  • Good reverse speed.
  • Smoke grenade can be released twice.
  • A five-man crew, unlike other Centurion designs.

Cons:

  • Terrible muzzle velocity makes this vehicle not very useful in the open area, especially in RB.
  • Low top speed.
  • Centurion is a large tank = larger target.
  • Side armor is still very weak.
  • Only has HESH as its only ammunition.
  • Based on Centurion Mk 5, which is similar as the Centurion Mk 3, so it has the similar weak spots as the Centurion Mk 3 (like the turret ring).
  • Top of the engine deck can be easily penetrated by planes.
