|this Gladiator named "long John Silver" follows the Swedish Strv 103's down the road.|
Being 1/76 scale the model is not of a Centurion but a Gladiator, not a very original name but back in 1950 when Oronegro began its own production of the Centurion the name for this small tank didn't seem that important. the Gladiator like most small versions of large tanks in those days was not primarily designed for urban warfare, but jungle combat and bunker assault. Oronegro firmly believing at the time that tanks must be able to fit into the tunnel systems of underground bunkers... though this meant that the Gladiator was armed with a rather silly and infective short barrelled gun the Tank was built in large enough numbers that only in 1980 was the Gladiator finally retired from service (after 15 years being in reserve, and 20 years after the Centurion itself was retired.
|the Gladiator an old relic the old Oronegrean military.|
