Also  we have provided some fine woven material and instructions to make the mantelet dust cover that was not included in previous versions.

 

NEW

MA409 105mm L7 barrel

A Centurion Mk.5/1 with a 105mm L7 gun became a Mk.5/2.  The Australian military decided not to add the 105mm so the Australian Centurion remained at the Mk.5/1 mark.

An up gunned (105mm), up armoured Mk.III became a Mk.6.

MA411 Metal jerrycans (10)

Centurions often carried a mixture of US plastic / Australian Plastic / metal jerrycans for this purpose.

NOTE:  This set will now include a mixture of British style metal jerrycans and plastic US styles water jerrycans
