  1. We won’t add the two Tier X tanks to the end of the Russian tree until next year because we are too busy working on the new tech trees, but here is your monthly new premium tank.

    1. It makes sense when you think about it. Both T-10 and Object 430-II are fairly well liked and played a lot, so quite a few players already have enough exp on them to unlock the Tier 10s. WG makes no money out of it, but they do with this Mad Max-esque Centurion.


    1. “because there are enough brits”

      They have never said this. The only thing WG said is that they won’t introduce the Chieftain this year since they don’t know yet which tanks to put before it because they want a whole branch.


  2. At least this a cool option to the FV4202.
    While not needed, still looks pretty cool.
    Also, who knows how long this was sitting around not being used and is now released for $$


  3. From comparing this tank to the Centurion Mk. 1 the differences are 1400 health (1450), 950 HP engine (750) for 18.63 HP/t (16.70), hull traverse 36 degrees/s (37.54), and turret traverse 37.5 degrees/s (40.25), and finally Frontal Hull Armor of 120.7 (76.2). Basically you get a more mobile Centurion with better armor and only lose a little traverse and HP. This tank is definitely overtuned.

      1. Pretty much, except even better. Only thing Berlin has over regular Cromwell that this doesn’t have over regular Centurion is the BS free BIA crew.


    1. Just wait till the release the premium Canadian Centurion MK 5/2 which was same as the up armored 5/1 except it had the 105mm L7 gun. Now that would be good match to all OP Russian tanks.


  4. Does anyone have info about how much they buffed the gun stabilization? The news text mentioned a buff on that part as well.


  5. Hoy many versions existed of the Centurion? Im pretty sure they all come as some weird premiums in WoT. Clones are easier to make than new tanks..


    1. Think it’s a strz 81. Which are centurion Mark 3. So for a start they have same UfP as tier 8 regular centurion and not the 120mm the mark 5/1 has


  6. Well, I for one would like it. Dpm may not be great, but the gun itself looks good. Nice pen, good turret, gun depression, good view range, usable mobility.

    My Panther 8,8 has worse stats besides DPM and it feels okay most times.

    Plus the Centurion looks nice IMHO.


  7. Another op prem tank released by WG’s balance department that is clearly controlled by a person who has the brain capacity of a jar of mayonnaise.

  8. The fiest thing I saw about this tank is that it is Cent. Mk. 5/1 RAAC and in my language (bulgarian) the RAAC part can be read like [rak] which means cancer. And I already had an idea what kind of tank it is going to be 😁😁😁

  9. Agree. Would gladly see a Canadian MK6 or MK6/2 which had upgraded armor from the MK5 and MK5/2, infrared sights and the 105mm L7 gun in service 1965. 75 of these were eventually upgraded to the MK11 standard by 1971.
