Description Extended Information
 
Easy Model EM35012 British Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank w/ Upgraded Armor - Basra, Iraq, 2003 (1:72 Scale) "We're going to cut off their head, then we're going to kill 'em."
- General Norman Schwarzkopf discussing plans for Operation: Desert Storm, January 1991

The Challenger 2 is the current main battle tank of the British Army. The hull is similar to that of the Challenger I, as is the powerpack, but the turret has been redesigned to fit updated armament, and the tank is in many ways a coompletely new tank. The first production versions appeared in mid-1994, boasting a carbon dioxide laser rangefinder, thermal-imaging and fully computerized fire-control systems, giving a high first-round hit probability. In addition, turret traverse is all electric and the gun is fully stabilized. It also has the capacity to be fitted with the Battlefield Information Control System (BICS) in future years, to give even greater combat capability. A dozer can be fitted to the front of the hull. Nearly 400 were ordered by the British Army, with 18 being exported to Oman. Now in stock!
