If you try and inform yourself about the Yom Kippur War u will stumble across the same picture again and again.

 

 

Now, while this does look a lot like a Centurion the frontal hull is about completely wrong. LFP much too small, UFP way too much angled. On top of that, I did not find any Centurion/ Sho't with a comparable setup of hinges and light on the frontal plates.

Is this just a regular Centurion which looks odd because of the light/shadow combination, or is this something special.

Or could it be a montage? it looks very strange next to its left tracks.

 

Here is a picture for comparision:

 

€: And some random information: In Israel Centurion was named Sho't, if u write that cyrillic it is: Шот

Yes, that is a regular Centurion with a fitted adapter plate for a mine plough.
