On the Move

This is a 1/25 R/C model assembly kit which depicts the Centurion Mk.III, a tank used by numerous militaries and forces across the world, in addition to the British Army. An assembly-type twin gearbox is installed in the hull rear. Its dual Type 130 motors are controlled via the MC-07 control unit, allowing a range of speeds and turning circles, even pivots. Realistic motion is enhanced by movable Horstmann suspension featuring metal coil springs, while tracks come pre-assembled. No less than four marking options are included in the kit.

Serving with Distinction

Developed to meet the ever-improving threat of German armor, the Centurion evolved into the British main battle tank in the post-WWII era. The Mk.III was perhaps the most polished Centurion variant, upgunned with the powerful 20 pounder gun; it was deployed in the Korean War, and was regarded by many as the lynchpin of the Allied forces on the peninsula. Some 2,800 Mk.III Centurions were produced between 1948 and 1956. Deployed not just by Britain but also by clients such as India, Israel and Egypt, they were a formidable force in whatever military's colors they were used.
