The 52-tonne, V12-engined behemoth still bashes the Aussie bush with all the grace and nobility of a 650-horsepowered wrecking machine.

All this action was a very fitting precursor to the launch of an Aussie Centurion in the game-phenomenon World of Tanks, which has more than 160 million players world wide.
The Aussie Centurion was formally launched in the game today, 11 May 2018, as a tier 8 asset and should offer a great sense of nostalgia – as well as significant hitting power and survivability – to the plethora of Australian players in World of Tanks.
I’ll have a proper story of my real-life Centurion encounter in the next issue of CONTACT magazine, published on 1 June (don’t miss it by subscribing FREE here).
In the mean time, enjoy this action-packed video…
