Video: The Churchill Trust gets a Centurion

The tank restoration group The Churchill Trust has posted a video showing off their newly acquired Centurion tank.

Video Description from The Churchill Trust:

We have had a busy year, but one of the highlights has been the arrival of a Centurion tank. This represents the era after the Churchill Tank, with its Merlin derived engine, and a history that stretches from the end of World War 2 to the 1960’s and in that period, the main armament traces the development of the 20 Pounder and the 105mm gun as well as the ammunition for them. This tank is a 105mm version with an IR searchlight and gun stabilisation: the latest of the line.
