Some Egyptian Centurions
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I don't know, they are in a good shape if they are battlefield wrecks.

Lesley:

I’m pretty certain that those are captured Israeli ShotKal Centurions. Notice the Israeli-style searchlight stowage on the rear of the turret. One of them is missing its second stowage box on the turret side.

By the way, that photo is flipped horizontally — notice where the steering wheel of the transporter is, and the stowage box arrangement on the turret sides of the ShotKals. The two stowage boxes that we can see should be on the left turret side (the right side has only a single, long stowage box).

They were captured from the IDF in the `73 war. They are Shot Kals and even still have the IDF markings. This is how it should look.
