World of Tanks adds the Australian Centurion Tank

Posted on May 25, 2018

World of Tanks has expanded its tank roster with an Australian class, the Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC, only a few months after Australia and New Zealand received official servers.

Seeing use in the Vietnam War, it proved successful in helping reinforce firebases in the Battle of Coral-Balmoral, the Centurion is a Tier VIII medium tank and is available in World of Tanks premium store. The Australian version of the Centurion had a beefed up engine, bulked-up armour, and a tougher turret than the standard Mk.5 model. A true hero of the Australian military, the Centurion will definitely serve you well in battle.

Launching in 2010 and currently boasting approximately 20-30k players on at any given time, World of Tanks is insanely popular, surpassing even WoW in earnings in 2013, raking in a cool $372 million. The game has also attained critical success with an 80/100 on Metacritic, and 82.32% on Game Ranks, along with being lauded for its realism and tactical combat. World of Tanks features many different classes of tanks, from light and nimble to heavy and bulletproof, with a ton of customisation so you can get the loadout that suits your tactics the best.

If you play World of Tanks and have $46 USD to spare, you can head in the game or here¬†now to purchase yourself a slice of Australian history and show everyone that their tank isn’t a tank… THIS is a tank. If not, you can pick it up for free at the official World Of Tanks website, or on Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS4.
