Introduced to the British Army in 1983, the Challenger Main Battle Tanks have served operationally in the Balkans and both Gulf Wars. Their firepower, protection and shock action have been instrumental to the success of British forces. In addition to the familiar gun tanks, the Challenger family encompasses the Rhino Armoured Repair & Recover Vehicle (ARRV) and the new Trojan Armoured Engineer Vehicle (AEV). As the tank is well represented by major kit manufactures in both 1/72 and 1/35 scales, this book covers a wide range of the Challenger family. Each chapter presents the model using colour photos to illustrate scratch-building, painting and weathering techniques.
