This is a scale plastic model kit, assembly required. Paints and glue not included.
Developed by the United Kingdom to compete with the IS-3 heavy tank developed by the Soviet Union. It uses the body of the Centurion Mk.3 and combines it with a turret equipped with an L4 183mm caliber gun. The only ammunition that could be used was high-explosive squash (HESH), but it was the largest and most powerful tank-mounted gun at the time. It was discontinued due to the appearance of anti-tank missiles.
Kit includes new one-piece road wheels and accurately represented turret weld lines; the hatches can be displayed opened or closed. Decals for four versions are included.
