The Vespid 1/72 Centurion Mk.5/1 from the plastic model kits range accurately recreates the real life British main battle tank used by the Royal Australian Armoured Corps during the Vietnam War. This highly detailed plastic model kit includes a metal barrel, photo-etched parts, steel tow cables, and decals. This model requires paint and glue to complete.

In 1967, the Royal Australian Armoured Corps' (RAAC), 1st Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) Squadron transferred to "A" Squadron, 3rd Cavalry Regiment in South Vietnam. Although they successfully conducted combat operations in their areas of operations, reports from the field stated that their lightly-armoured M113A1 armoured personnel carriers were unable to force their way through dense jungle limiting their offensive actions against enemy forces. The Australian government, under criticism in Parliament, decided to send a squadron of Australian Centurion tanks to South Vietnam. The 20-pdr armed Australian Centurions of 'C' Squadron, 1st Armoured Regiment landed in South Vietnam on 24 February 1968.
