The Centurion, introduced in 1945, was the primary British main battle tank of the post-World War IIperiod. It was a successful tank design, with upgrades, for many decades. Operated by Canada.  Replaced by Leopard C1. Many of the tanks were sold to Israel which converted them to diesel. Some are still in use as variants.
