Text in original Preserved Tanks In Russia publication:

The Centurion Mark 5 was a development of the Mark 3 with a fume extractor and other changes. Increases in fuel capacity produced the Mark 6 and Mark 7. The Mark 8 had a new cupola and fire control system, and when rearmed with the Vickers L7A1 105mm gun was designated Mark 8/2, of which this is an example.
