Challenger 1 Main Battle Tank (FV 4030/4 Model) Manual (1983-2001) - An insight into the design, operation and maintenance (Haynes Military Manual)

The British Army's 62-tonne Challenger 1 was the first of a new generation of main battle tanks when it entered service in 1983. Its most important design features were the use of the revolutionary Chobham armour system and hydrogas suspension that gave it superb cross-country performance.

Challenger saw action in the 1991 Gulf War, in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the 1990s, and in Operation Joint Guardian, the NATO-led drive into Kosovo. Challenger 1 claims the longest range tank-to-tank kill in military history, when it destroyed an Iraqi tank at 3.17 miles.

Challenger 1 - British Main Battle Tank of the Gulf War (TankCraft)

During the 1980s and early 1990s the Challenger 1 main battle tank played a central role in Britain's armoured forces and it achieved remarkable success in combat, destroying around 300 Iraqi tanks in the Gulf War.
With its advanced Chobham armour and hydropneumatic suspension system, it was one of the most sophisticated and effective armoured vehicles of the time and, in a modified form, it is still in service with the Jordanian army.
It is also a popular subject with tank modellers and enthusiasts, which is why this volume in the TankCraft series is of such value.

Archive photos of the Challenger 1 in service and extensively researched colour profile illustrations depict the tank throughout its operational life. A large part of the book showcases available model kits and aftermarket products, complemented by a gallery of beautifully constructed and painted models in various scales.
Technical details as well as modifications introduced during production and in the field are also examined and provide everything the modeller needs to recreate an accurate representation of the Challenger 1.

The Challenger 1 Main Battle Tank was Great Britain's second purpose-designed Main Battle Tank and served as the spear point of the Royal Armoured Corps for nearly 20 years.
The Challenger 1 proved to be an excellent combat vehicle in Operation Granby after a controversial early career in the British Army, and it continues to serve the Jordanian army to the present day.

Challenger Main Battle Tank 1982-97 (Osprey)

The successor to the Chieftain from the 1960's, work began in 1976 on development of a new MBT specifically for the Iranian army, who needed a more capable tank than the Chieftain to suit their climatic and geographical conditions. However, once the revolution occurred in 1979 the British army was reluctantly forced to accept this new design themselves. Once in service there were technical problems resulting in various modifications. However, the Challenger would go on to great success in the Gulf War, playing crucial roles in both Desert Storm and Desert Sabre operations.

In this book, Simon Dunstan examines this tank in detail, evaluating its performance both on the test range and in the field of battle.
