Text in original Preserved Tanks In Russia publication:

The Centurion Mark 9 was an up-armoured Mark 7 with the 105mm gun which, with improvements, became the Mark 12. This appears to be a Mark 12; however recent examination indicates that it is an Israeli modified version mounting a new engine, and was therefore probably captured in the Arab-Israeli wars (source: R. Fleming).
