Description:
New book, 64 pages, 90+ colour photos. The British Army's Challenger Main Battle Tank was born not simply as the answer to a straightforward military requirement, but also as the result of shifting political and financial constraints. Despite this unpromising birth, the tank was to prove itself triumphantly in combat in Operation Desert Sabre - the hundred-hour war to liberate Kuwait in 1991, when more than 170 Challengers destroyed large numbers of Iraqi tanks and AFV's without suffering a single loss to enemy fire.Since the Gulf War Challenger has again been deployed on active service with the NATO peace-keeping forces in the former Yugoslavia. The latest and greatly improved Challenger 2 variant is coming into regimental service, and will form the heavy muscle of Britain's rapid reaction force in Central Europe. In this book the respected military photographer and armoured warfare historian Simon Dunstan presents nearly 100 striking colour photos of Challenger on manoeuvres and on active service, including internal and external and internal detail close-ups, and accompanied by a fact based text.
