From 1943 the British began the design of a tank that was similar to the German Panther tank. In 1945 the design emerged as the Centurion. It was last used in action by the British Army in 1991 during the Gulf War, having been first blooded by the British during the Korean War in 1950 and subsequently during the Suez Campaign of 1956. This work details all the variants of the Centurion used in conflicts as well as covering the specialist variants last used by the British in the Gulf War.
