Challenger 1 und 2 Panzer - Großbritannien: Bildbände

Ein Buch über englische Panzerfahrzeuge? Hier finden Sie Bücher zur Geschichte, Technik und Einsatz der britischen Challenger 1 und 2 Kampfpanzer.

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.

Challenger 1 Main Battle Tank (vol. I)

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.

Contents: Design and Development v Challenger Technical Description - Canadian Army Trophy 1987 - Challenger to Challenger 2 - The Gulf War - Operation Desert Sabre.

Challenger 2

The introduction into British army service of the Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank (MBT) was originally intended to take a mere eighteen months from design to production, but in the event, it took something closer to ten years.
Why this was so is an important part of the Challenger 2 story, and although on the face of it this might seem to be a clear failure, it actually produced the most thoroughly tested and reliable tank ever to enter service with the Royal Armoured Corps (RAC).

The tank has now been in service for twenty years and can be expected to form part of the British army's inventory - albeit in low numbers - until around 2035, which would make it the longest-serving frontline battle tank ever used by the UK.

Challenger 2 - British Main Battle Tank of the Gulf War (TankCraft)

The pioneering tank crew of the First World War would be astonished by the advances made in the design of armoured fighting vehicles over the last 100 years which have resulted in the Challenger 2, the current main battle tank in service with the British army.
In terms of its speed, manoeuvrability and firepower, and the protection it provides for its crew, the Challenger 2 is one of the most advanced and sophisticated tanks ever built, and it is a popular subject with tank modellers and enthusiasts.
That is why this volume in the TankCraft series on the Challenger, featuring hundreds of photographs and specially commissioned colour profiles, is absorbing reading and such a valuable work of reference.

Archive photos of the Challenger 2 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 2.

Challenger 2 : The British Main Battle Tank - Rare Photographs from Wartime Archives (Images of War)

For much of the Cold War, the British Armys main battle tanks (MBT) were first the Centurion and then the Chieftain. The question of the latters replacement became urgent when in 1980 MBT80 was cancelled.
While the Royal Ordnance Challenger (originally the Shir 2) was acquired as a stop gap its design and capability limitations quickly became apparent. Vickers then took over the Royal Ordnance tank building facility and against stiff foreign competition developed the Challenger 2.

This superbly researched and illustrated book tells the story of the evolution and subsequent successful career of Challenger 2 which has seen distinguished service in war and peace since 1990 and has proved itself one of the worlds most formidable fighting vehicles.
The authors do not shy away from technical detail and make comparisons with competitors. The result is an objective and authoritative work which will delight military equipment buffs, modellers and wargamers.

Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank 1987-2006 (Osprey)

The Challenger 2 is the current Main Battle Tank of the British Army and represents the culmination of 80 years of tank design.

Production began in 1993, and the tank finally entered service in 2002. The tank recently appeared in Iraq, where it proved indispensable during the battle of Basra.

This book covers the evolution of the Challenger 2, from its origins and testing to its involvement in the Middle East and Iraq.

Contents: Introduction - Design and development of the Challenger 2 - Weapons and tactics - Variants and users - Operational history - In combat - Bibliography - Colour plate commentary - Index.
