The Mk. III was perhaps the most polished Centurion variant, equipped with the L/66.7 20 pounder long barrel gun. It was also deployed in the Korean War in 1950, and showed off overwhelming strength which saved the Allied forces from crisis many times.
The production of this tank reached about 2,800 between 1948 and 1956. After the Korean War, the Mk. III were deployed in European countries, but also other areas such as India, Israel, and Egypt with their formidable force.
