AWACS Tank Guides

Centurion 7/1: The Legendary 105 Gun-slinger 

 

 

Feeling relaxed yet? Childhood nostalgia coming back? Wanting to watch Frozen? Your WELCOME!  

 

Hello everyone! EdAWACSdenyY here! and today I'm going to be talking to you about the Centurion 7/1. This is the Tier 9 British Medium Tank and without a doubt my most prized and favourite tank in the game! And today we'll be going over the stats.

 

 

Now here we see the elusive and meek Centurion 7/1 in his natural habitat: The Garage. Majestic he is. Oh! He has spotted us! Best not disturb him peaceful and humble he may look. He has a venomous sting. 

 

Background History: 

 

In 1943, the Directorate of Tank Design was asked to produce a new design for a heavy cruiser tank under the General Staff designation A41. After a series of fairly marginal designs in the A series in the past, and bearing in mind the threat posed by the German 88 mm gun, the War Office demanded a major revision of the design requirements, specifically:

 

  • increased durability and reliability (Cause early cruiser tanks's armour were a joke obviously and their engines and suspension were liable to breakdowns until they got to the Cromwell and Comet tanks that is.)
  • the ability to withstand a direct hit from the German 88 mm gun (Since the the Allies were all starting to get pretty tired of getting sniped by those damn Tigers!) 
  • a maximum weight of 40 tons. (Cause they wanted to be able to transport these tanks on old trailers and not have to build new ones)
  • The hull was to offer more protection against mines (Well who wouldn't?)
  • top speed was not vital but agility had to be equal to that of Comet cruiser tank. (Cause you need to be agile baby!)
  • A high reverse speed (I'll leave the reason for that up to you to speculate)

 

The new version carried armour equal to the heaviest infantry tanks, and cross-country performance was superior to even the early cruiser tanks. The A41 was the first British tank that could "do it all", leading to the new designation "universal tank". The design mockup built by AEC Ltd was viewed in May 1944. Subsequently twenty pilot models were ordered with various armament combinations: ten with 17 pdr and 20mm Polsten gun of which half had a Besa machine gun in the turret rear and half an escape door, five with 17pdr and forward Besa and escape door, and five with QF 77mm gun and driver-operated hull machine gun.

 

Prototypes of the original 40-ton design, the Centurion Mark I, had 76 mm of armour in the front glacis, which was thinner than the then current infantry tank designs such as the Churchill which had 101 mm, but the glacis plate was highly sloped and so the effective thickness of the armour was very high—a design feature shared by other effective designs such as the German Panther tank and Soviet T-34. The turret was extremely well armoured at 152 mm. The tank was also highly mobile, and easily outperformed the Comet in most tests.

 

The new Centurion Mark III featured a fully automatic stabilisation system for the gun, allowing it to fire accurately while on the move, dramatically improving battlefield performance. Production of the Mk 3 began in 1948. The Mk 3 was so much more powerful than the Mk 1 and Mk 2 that the earlier designs were removed from service as soon as new Mk 3s arrived, and the older tanks were then either converted into the Centurion Armoured Recovery Vehicle (ARV) Mark 1 for use by the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers or upgraded to Mk 3 standards. Improvements introduced with the Mk 3 included a more powerful version of the engine and a new gunsight and gun stabiliser. The 20 pounder gun was used only for a short time, until the Royal Ordnance Factories introduced the now legendary 105 mm L7 gun.

 

All later variants of the Centurion, from Mark 5/2 on, used the L7. Design work for the Mk 7 was completed in 1953 with production beginning soon afterwards. The Centurion 7/1 was the ancestor of the modern Main Battle Tank, combining the holy trinity of tank features of exceptional mobility, decent armour, and excellent fire-power.

 

The story of how 105 mm L7A1's gestation was the age old conflict between guns and armour. 

Work on what became the L7A1 began in the early 1950s with the first gun trials in mid-1956. During the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, a Soviet T-54 medium tank was driven onto the grounds of the British embassy in Budapest by the Hungarians. After a brief examination of this tank's armour and  D-10 100 mm gun, British officials decided that the 20 pounder was probably going to have a hard time penetrating the T-54's frontal armour. Hence there was a need to adopt a 105 mm gun.

The L7 was specifically designed to fit into the turret mountings of the 20 pounder. This would enable the Centurions to be upgunned with minimum modifications; hence, the fleet could be upgraded in a shorter time and at a lower cost.

Now that we have glanced over the general stats of this tank, Let us review its advantages and disadvantages on the battlefield in great detail:

 

Advantages: 

 

The Gun: The Centurion 7/1 bears the distinction among all other Tier 9 medium tanks of being the only tier 9 medium tank which can mount a tier 10 medium tank gun. What gun is that? That gun which makes this vehicle unique is the Legendary Royal Ordnance L7A1 105 mm rifled cannon. This tier 10 calibre gun fires APCR for its standard ammunition rather than regular AP.

 

Your APCR rounds have an INSANE AVERAGE PENETRATION OF 268 MM! That's more penetration than all the tier 9 medium tanks and heavy tank's standard ammunition! Your average penetration at tier 9 is only rivalled by Tier 9 Tank destroyers and a few Tier 8 Tank destroyers. This allows you to punch through the frontal weak-spots of even the most heavily armoured tanks and provide top-tier fire support no matter what tier you are in something other mediums of your tier can seldom boast with consistency. The shell damage is brutal at around an average 390 points of damage per shot. Combine this with relative good accuracy of the gun and decent aim time, you can guarantee most of the time that your shot will hit home.

 

With a gun like this, you will laugh at the armour of most tanks you go up against.

 

The other benefit of firing APCR as your standard ammunition is that due to the higher muzzle velocity at which the shell leaves your gun barrel, it will arrive at its target at a much faster speed than regular AP shot. This means you don't have to give as much lead when firing a shot and you will almost always hit hard and hit fast.

 

HESH Ammunition: You may have noticed as you creep up to Tier 9 and 10 in the British Tech Tree that there is something strange about the British tank gun's HE ammunition. They all have high penetration values! The Centurion 7/1 rather than firing APCR or HEAT for it's premium ammunition, fires HESH instead.

 

The premium HESH  you get to load on the Centurion 7/1 has quite good penetration of 210 mm and the regular HE ammunition has 105 mm of penetration. This allows you more applications for your HE ammunition unlike the tanks from other nations. Your HESH is able to penetrate many targets other tanks wish their HE ammunition could penetrate. And if you do you deal a higher amount of damage than with your standard ammunition and you have a higher chance of damaging crew and modules on your target devastating his tank. 

 

This makes you extremely lethal against weakly armoured targets and will make anyone who gives you their side or rear armour a reason to regret ever doing that. With you HESH ammunition, you can at times do more damage than any other medium tank at tier 9 with the single shot giving the Centurion 7/1 the highest potential alpha damage for a medium tank, Just remember, like HE ammunition, HESH is not subject to normalization of enemy armour and can be mitigated by spaced armour as well as tracks. 

 

 The gun depression: No other tank of the other nation has a medium tank which has 10 degrees of gun depression. This wonderful gun depression allows you to hulldown in positions which other medium tanks can only dream about using. 

 

The turret: The upgraded turret on the Centurion 7/1 is incredibly troll with a large thick gun mantlet covering most of the front. However the turret has some glaring weak spots which can be exploited more easily than the weak spots on turrets of American tanks. This makes the turret very good for the back and forth fire and retreat strategy you should use when playing this tank.

 

The power to weight ratio: Like its predecessor this tank is not as speedy and manoeuvrable a speed demon as the T-54 or as fast as the M46 Patton, 2 contemporary tanks, but it's got a lot of grunt and huff in that powerful Rolls-Royce Griffon engine. With 950 horsepower, this allows the Centurion 7/1 to reach it's top speed limit very quickly and accelerate right off the bat while most other medium tanks are still picking up speed. With a much more powerful engine, you are now an even fiercer hill-climber. 

 

Side Skirts: Like with the Centurion Mk. 1, the weak sides of the Centurion 7/1 is entirely covered by the tracks and protective side skirts. This will allow you to mitigate most of the damage from High Explosive rounds and negate HEAT rounds. People will regret firing HE or HEAT ammo into your side armour.

 

 

Special shout out to a certain IS-8 driver who thought firing HE ammunition at my side armour would work!

 

Disadvantages:

 

Marginal Hull Armour: The Centurion 7/1 is fitted with a marginally better hull than it's predecessor, the Mk. 1. Its upper glacis is 120 mm thick sloped equating to about 226 mm of effective armour. This will allow you to bounce some shots frontally from  tier 7 and below tanks however you cannot rely on your armour in tier 8, 9 or 10 where most guns have a penetration value greater than your armour thickness. Your lower glacis is weak however being only 76mm thick which any tank will have no problem penetrating. You side and rear armour at 50 and 31 mm thick, is nothing to write home about. 

 

TLDR: YOU CANNOT RELY ON YOUR HULL ARMOUR AT ALL!

 

The Gun Reload: The Top gun on the Centurion 7/1; the 105 mm L7A1 rifled cannon, has awesome penetration and alpha damage at tier 9. However, that comes at a cost: Reload times. The reload time on the L7A1 is slow for a medium tank with an average of 5 rounds per minute. This makes you a poor brawler against other medium tanks. Every medium tank around you will be able to fire 2 shots for every shot you fire. Keep that in mind and avoid close range engagements when possible unless you are sure you can come out of the brawl better off. Otherwise don't rush forward. You won't fare well. Just ask ISU-152 drivers.

 

 Big Bulky Bloated ( AWACS Alliteration Attempt B): This tank is large and bulky for a medium tank in fact this tank is taller than some of the Heavy tanks even! This means your camouflage rating is downright terrible and everyone will easily detect you.  

 

Low Top Speed for a medium: This tank is agile and has very good acceleration, but it is hampered by that maximum 40 km / hour top speed limit. This means it will take some time for this tank to get somewhere. Still it beats the T95 right?

 

Module and Crew damage: Ironically the British designed the Centurion with ammo storage deep inside the hull as opposed to around the turret as it was supposed to be safer that way. However in game this becomes one of the disadvantages to your tank. hits to your frontal hull can damage your ammo rack increasing your reload time or finishing you off in one hit. You fuel tanks, engine and crew members are also prone to being damaged as well. But at least your better off than the T44's ammo racks. That should reassure you....... (._.)

 

Now that we know what's good and bad about this tank, Let's move on shall we to performance and how to effectively operate this tank in battle.

 

Summary: As you guys may or may not know the Centurion 7/1 is EdAWACSdenyY's favourite tank in World of  Tanks no questions asked. Anyone, if you were to go up to me and ask me what was my favourite tank? Centurion 7/1. Kinda like how whenever people ask what song that was, you reply "Darude Sandstorm". What you should know is that EdAWACSdenyY's favourite #1 tank of all time in the game is the Centurion 7/1 and all other people who say otherwise are liars. 

 

Got it? Good!

 

Being my favourite tank, of course it makes writing this AWACS Tank Guide a bit more difficult as it makes me a bit biased as to how to play this tank. Cause I like anyone else, prefer to play this tank my way and my way only. But my way doesn't have to be your way. So I do have to consider the possibility of other ways to play this tank. 

 

Now those who know that the Centurion 7/1 is EdAWACSdenyY's favourite tank but why is it? Well it's mostly the gun and the versatility of this tank as a whole. It is quite agile, has an accurate gun and it hits hard. What's more to ask? The Centurion 7/1 has arguably, the best top gun at tier 9 in EdAWACSdenyY's honest opinion. It has insane penetration and the ability to Fire HESH rounds allow you to devastate targets with mind-boggling alpha damage for a medium tank. This is one tank which no one should underestimate.

 

You are probably wondering right now, why I've reused portions from my other guides for this tank. It's because the Centurion 7/1 is similar to the Caernarvon and Centurion Mk. 1 in some respects but different in other areas. 

 

So without further ado, here's some strategies which you should utilize.

 

Now the Centurion 7/1 has different play-styles which is dictated by the gun which you prefer using on it. Both guns it has are quite competitive. So I'll try my best to give both of them a fair hearing. 

 

Royal Ordnance L7A1 105 mm Cannon: If you are like EdAWACSdenyY, you will use this gun when you get it. Sure your rate of fire will be quite low. But whenever you whack someone with this big bad boy, they gonna feel the burn. You will not have to expose yourself as often with this gun and you will laugh at all but the most heavily armoured targets.

 

Tier 7 and 8 tanks will be a breeze to penetrate almost anywhere. and Tier 9 tanks will not seem so tough under your scope. You can even give some tier 10 tanks a run for their money if you can get their weak-spots. 

 

Whenever you get the side profile of any tank with a nice flat surface you will cackle with glee. as you will be (hopefully) load that lovely HESH ammunition. Aim carefully, give that gun a crack and watch as you deal around 400 + damage on a good day with RNG on your side. But the best part is when you get the rear of a tank, especially one with thin rear armour. That's when you be wriggling with happiness as you deliver a delightful dosage of what The Mighty Jingles colourfully calls "Surprise Butt Sex Time" If you are lucky! You will burn them! Like this!

 

 

Okay, I think you got the point there. Good. So where was I? Oh right you will make them get burned from your lovely HESH rounds. 

 

Your HESH rounds will also make you the Bane of Tier 7 and 8 Medium tanks. You will be able to inflict devastating damage as your premium HESH rounds punch through their thin frontal armour. The M46 Patton will also learn to dread your gun as you pierce through his thin frontal armour with HESH.

 

USE HESH WHENEVER YOU HAVE THE CHANCE! It's the feature which makes your tank unique. It's what give your tank that edge no other medium tank has. There are some Centurion 7/1 drivers out there who are still sadly oblivious to the usage of HESH. Learning how to do that will allow you to effectively play almost any tier 9 and above British Tank. HESH is a feature only common to the British, Why not utilize that to your advantage? If you flank and get the thinner side and rear armour, you can do far more damage. Once you master the way of HESH, trust me, you will do monstrous amounts of damage other medium tanks wished they could do with one shot.

 

However, your low rate of fire means that you cannot afford to brawl with other medium tanks as they can do far more damage to you than you can dish out. It's usually best you avoid close encounters when possible in this tank, unless you are finishing off a injured tank or you are sure no one is really paying attention to you while you focus on your victim. Otherwise, best keep the engagement at medium to semi-long range. Best is at medium ranges where you can see a enemy tanks weak-spots more clearly. Long ranges work fine as well, but in higher tier matches it will be slightly harder to hit weak-points. However do not go into brawling matches if you use this gun. Best thing to do is pick a hull down area and pick off your enemies one by one as they are distracted by other tanks. Your damage will really be felt!

 

In my honest opinion, the 105 mm gun is the way to go with this tank as it has that insane penetration and extra alpha damage with the HESH. This is the gun which makes the Centurion 7/1 so special versatile and devastating. 

 

Ordnance Quick-Firing 20 pounder Type B Barrel Cannon: Your more of a brawler style of tank which can still function as a sniper. Your DPM in game is unrivalled at Tier 9. You will absolutely shred your enemies if they make the mistake of letting you. With this gun, your enemies will literally suffer death from a thousand cuts for lack of a better term. However you will have to play a bit more aggressive at times due to your low alpha damage, Flanking and carouseling will be more prevalent tactics mostly with this gun as your 226 mm of penetration will be somewhat lacking against certain tanks at your tier. You will have to expose yourself a lot more if you want to apply that DPM. If you are forced to peek-a boo with this gun, you are not going to do as well since your alpha damage is minuscule at Tier 9 and 10. Best play with this gun in usually a platoon if you wish to. 

 

You can still remain competitive using the Type B Barrel which is more accurate and takes less time to aim than the 105 mm but you will have to work harder to penetrate your opponents and expose yourself a bit more to make use of that DPM.   

 

Hanging back: You are not meant to be a front-line tank or a scout. You are more of a dedicated support tank. However with the way matchmaking works these days, you will on occasion be the top tier tank. However that does not mean you have to charge into the fray. You will not last very long if you try to do that. Neither will cowering and sniping from range help much either. It's best you accompany your team and let some of your other tanks detect and report enemy tank positions for you. You can than unload on these targets while they are preoccupied with other matters . Around the late game where some tanks are down to low health, you can really shine in pouncing on  wounded tanks and finishing off near death tanks.

 

Remember, like the ISU-152, your biggest asset to your team is keeping that gun of yours in the game as much as possible and in use. If you die early on, your team has just lost a powerful gun which could have done great devastation upon the enemy team. Try to stay alive and useful as long as you can. 

 

Working the TerrainThis is by far the simplest and most effective tactic for this tank in game. Utilizing the terrain to conceal your hull. For a tank as big as the Centurion 7/1, you will be surprised at how well you can utilize cover to hide behind. Use piles of rubble, dead tanks, hills and even ridge-lines and undulations in the terrain to work around. However you cannot afford to sit there and take it unlike American heavy tanks. Your turret does contain some glaring weak-spots. If you sit there and tank, you are giving your enemies time to aim at those weak-spots. The best way you can be successful while hulldown, is you pop up exposing only your turret, take your shot than reverse back into cover. Whether you are working ridge-lines or on a hill, repeat this tactic.

 

  1. Pop up
  2. Take your shot
  3. Retreat back into cover. 

 

Your accurate gun with a relatively low aim time will allow you to apply this tactic effectively. While the enemy is still aiming for your turret weak-spots, you would have already fired and gone back down. With the strong mantlet and your ten degree's of gun depression you can make players feel frustrated as they bounce off that gun mantlet while you penetrate them. The added bonus with using the 105 mm gun is that you will not have to expose yourself to the enemy as much. This tactic will take some time to get used to and initially you will have much trouble finding your proper position, but the most advice I can give you is, be patient and continue exploring areas and keep trying. Abuse situational awareness to move from cover to cover. Always be on the move. Eventually you will be a beast on hills and behind cover. 

  

AWACS Equipment: 

 

Medium Tank Rammer: The rammer is a must have piece of equipment for this tank, boosting your rate of fire which is already quite high to be even higher.

 

Gun-Laying Drive: Helps you very much when you are working hills or ridge-lines. allowing your gun to be more accurate with the shots by decreasing your aim time.

 

Vertical Stabilizer: A must have with this tank and most British medium tanks. This will allow your tank to fire on the move with decent accuracy and a decrease in size of your aim circle.

 

 I hope you guys found this guide helpful, and hopefully allowed those of you who struggled with this tank to now find it somewhat bearable at the very least. If you feel that there were any parts to this guide which were inadequately explained, or there were some areas I left out. Please let me know and I will try my best to rectify. 

 

Thanks for reading AWACS Tank Guides and I will see you on the battlefield.

BTW: The values you stated for the reload and damage values for the ammo are for PC

The values for blitz are that the ROF is slightly higher, with 350 Average damage for the apcr, 450 (I think..) For hesh.

Play this tank as a support tank, I have found it to be the best support tank out there! If you are having trouble with the tank, feel free to ask for a platoon, I'm loving it! And at the same time having great results in it. (79% WR)

Great job on the review/tutorial for the 7/1.  This is definitely one the tanks I just MUST play whenever I log in.  If I have time for only one game, it will be a Cent 7/1  pub stomp ;)

BTW: The values you stated for the reload and damage values for the ammo are for PC

The values for blitz are that the ROF is slightly higher, with 350 Average damage for the apcr, 450 (I think..) For hesh.

Play this tank as a support tank, I have found it to be the best support tank out there! If you are having trouble with the tank, feel free to ask for a platoon, I'm loving it! And at the same time having great results in it. (79% WR)

 

Fixed the errors. Thanks for pointing it out! I wish I had that good a winrate on my Centurion 7/1. Only 55% for me

This is not a review - it's an ode to this tank.  I think you should now write a song about it ;)

 

HA HA HA, I try not to be too biased in my tank guides but than again the sole purpose of my tank guides is to make the tanks which people play feel fun or at least bearable. And since this is my favourite tank.... Yeah I went over board a little. 

 

I'm not witty enough for my song. You should see the jokes I put in here. Not that humorous haha.

Awesome review!  I was starting to write my own,, but you beat me to it!  I was getting annoyed at how everyone else's review just compared it to other tanks of the same tier, but ignore how it does in other tiers.  Great Job, you did it!

Great review, man. I really wish I read this a few weeks ago. I watched a video review where someone suggested that the tier IX gun (20 pdr, type B) with the crazy ROF was the way to go, so I slogged through with it and resisted the urge to free XP to the royal ordinance gun. Man, was that wrong. Since getting that, my experience with the tank has completely changed. Should have done that a long time ago.
