"The Centurion Tank was the outstanding British tank of the post-1945 era serving with several countries including Australia.

Designed during the Second World War, it arrived too late to see service during that conflict but went on to serve admirably in the Korean War with Commonwealth Forces and again in the Vietnam War with the Royal Australian Armoured Corps.

Whilst the conflict was a jungle war, the tank proved remarkably successful in supporting ground forces in the close terrain, but was more successful in more open terrain.

The Centurion came into its own during the Battles of Coral and Balmoral in 1968 where they provided sterling service to the ATF troops fighting off the Viet Cong and NVA troops infiltrating towards Saigon. The image below is of Ken McFadyen's The Breakout showing Centurions in Vietnam.
