The Centurions had RR Meteor engines - and if they had only had a common

It was not until the beginning of 1952 that the Australian Army finally
received it's first Centurion tanks. These first tanks were given to 1
Armoured Regiment.


How about the Comet tank - what engine did that have - and did the Aussies use
it - and was it in Korea ??


Comet had the Meteor.
