The Centurion tank forms the backbone of the armoured forces for humanity. Its durable advanced composite armour provides it the battlefield survivability demanded in the warzones of New Helix. Its main armament is the large calibre 130mm smooth-bore cannon, giving the Centurion devastating firepower to overcome the MTU's more resistant foes. The tank is also armed with the 'Silencer' tri-barrelled weapon system, allowing it to concentrate on enemy infantry or light vehicles that find themselves unfortunate enough to be in the Centurion's sights. Lastly the tank has a remote operating mount designed to accommodate a variety of weapons, such as grenade launchers or incendiary projectors, but most commonly a .50 cal HMG, allowing it to quickly respond to ambushes and infantry assaults, or even used to suppress targets of opportunity. The crew inside the tank have access to an extensive suite of high tech systems, allowing them full integration into the overall battle force, plus detection and monitoring equipment giving 360o awareness of the nearby battle space.
When the tank encounters especially hard targets such as well defended bunkers or fortification, the cannon can fire specially designed Compressor rounds, colloquially nicknamed 'blobs' by the crew. These contain a core of highly dense plastic explosives designed to 'splat' onto surfaces before detonating, sending shockwaves throughout the target. These shockwaves will transfer through the walls of the structure, sending small shards of shrapnel, or anything loose for that matter, into delicate infrastructure, equipment and any unfortunate occupiers.
