Online Centurion Main Battle Tanks & Centurion Armoured Recovery Vehicle Sale

Details of sale

Under Instructions from V & P Ryan this sale includes 4 Centurion Battle Tanks & 1 Centurion Armoured Recovery Vehicle.

Buyers can bid from anywhere in Australia exclusively via PicklesONLINE.

About the Assets: The centurion tank is British built and was adopted by the Australian Army in the mid 1950’s. Used extensively in the Vietnam War the Centurion remained Australia’s front line tank until replaced by the German Leopard in the mid 70’s. The entire inventory of Centurions was placed in long term storage at Bandiana Army Base until 1989 when 105 Centurions were disposed of by public tender to a single purchaser.

One hundred of these tanks were subsequently on sold across Australia and around the world.

The five remaining Centurions from that original purchase are now offered for sale. Put aside as the best of the fleet in 1989 they were each driven under their own power into purpose built shedding where they have remained to this day under the same ownership.

These five tanks have been in continuous secure storage since circa 1977.

According to available records the four main battle tanks were rebuilt prior to storage and the ARV was fully serviceable.

The Centurion tanks are offered for genuine sale as the owners wish to rationalise their affairs
