  1. Could somebody enlighten me about the fitment of these bulbs to the Centurion tank, I bought this last week at the local carboot, I picked it up and the seller claimed it was for a Centurion tank, so as it was only a Β£1, I decided to buy it. When I googled the part number, it does say fitted to Centurion tank but I can find no more info than this ? It's claimed it's for a searchlight but I can't find any details/pictures showing this. http://www.lamptech.co.uk/Spec Sheets/D G Xe Thorn XED 2000W.htm
