Centurion Armoured Recovery Vehicle Mk.2
Centurion Armoured Recovery Vehicle Mk.2 
The Centurion ARV Mk.2 was the standard British Armoured Recovery Vehicle (ARV) from 1956 onwards, replacing the venerable Churchill ARV Mk.II (UK86). Still operational during the Gulf War of 1990/91, some took part in conflict with the final vehicle leaving service in 1995. It is widely regarded as the best ARV of it’s era. Most of these ARV’s were based on earlier marks of gun tanks which resulted in two distinct versions. The ‘long’ hull type which was based on Centurion Mk.1's and Mk.2's and the ‘short’ hull type which was based on Centurion Mk.3 or Mk.5. Most of the 300 plus produced, including the export versions, were short hull vehicles and our model is based on this version.
The Centurion Mk II ARV consisted of a basic tank hull with a box-like superstructure in place of the turret. This accommodated the winch and a separate winch engine, a 160hp Rolls Royce B80. The winch engine powered a generator providing electric power to the winch. The cable emerged from the back of the winch housing and a rear mounted spade gave stability whilst winching.
Developed as the FV 4006, the Centurion ARV Mk.2 first production vehicles were completed by Vickers in 1956.. Most Mk 2's used the hulls of former gun tanks or tugs, but some were newly built as ARVs. Used by Australia, India, Israel, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland, as well as the United Kingdom.
