British CHallenger 2 MBT (OP. Telic) Iraq 2003
British Challenger 2 is an advanced main battle tank built by the UK company, Alvis Ltd (formerly Vickers Defense Systems). Although similar in appearance to Challenger 1, the Challenger 2 has many improvements including a brand new turret armed with the latest 120mm L30 rifled tank gun firing a new APFSDS_T projectile with a depleted uranium penetrator. The new computerized fire control system, all electric gun control and stabilizing system, and stabilized sights for the commander and gunner give a high degree of first round hit probability under both day and night conditions. Standard equipment includes thermal camera over the 120 MM gun providing a picture for gunner and commander, as well as and NBC (Nuclear, Biological, chemical) system.
