British Mbt Challenger 2

  1. Description

    Tamiya presents the British Challenger 2 MBT to the Military Miniature Series, further adding
    to the 1/35 scale MM Iraq series of models. Great to build and compare with previously
    released British MBT including the Centurion (89555), Chieftain (35068) and Challenger 1
    (35154)
    or other vehicles active in Iraq such as the U.S. M1A2 Abrams (35269).
    Compared to the Challenger 1 MBT that saw service during the Gulf War, the Challenger 2
    features improved second generation Chobham armor capable of withstanding armor piercing
    and shape charge rounds. The fire control system was updated with the latest digital technology,
    including a panoramic Commander"s sight with built-in laser rangefinder and a thermal
    gunner"s sight. The 120mm L30 rifled main gun provides improved muzzle velocity and
    accuracy, and enables the Challenger 2 to discharge armor piercing, HESH, smoke and
    depleted uranium rounds. Special modifications to tanks deployed to Iraq included reactive
    armor added to the front, composite armor on the sides, a special cover to reduce exhaust
    heat, canvas skirts to reduce dust ingestion, Commander"s Independent Thermal Viewer
    (CITV) and Combat Identification Panels (CIP).
