Conceived at the height of WWII, the British Centurion and Soviet T-55 were initially expecteed to counter the formidable Panthers and Tigers of Nazi Germany. But as the Cold War unfolded, both tanks became more emblematic of the confrontation between the West and proxy allies of the Soviet Union. Israel acquired & modified large numbers of Centurions while her enemy Arab neighbors acquired large numbers of T-55s from the Soviet Union.
