Description

The British FV4030/4 Challenger 1 Tank was the first Main Battle Tank to enter British Army service fitted with the revolutionary Chobham composite armour.

It made the headlines in the UK due to its poor performance in the NATO Gunnery competition called the CAT shoot in 1987.

During the 1990-91 Gulf War it set a new World Record when a Challenger 1 Tank of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards scored a hit against another tank at 4.1 km (2.54 miles). The Iraqi tank was a Russian-made T-55.

Deliveries of the first 420 Challenger 1 to the British Army started in March 1983 and served alongside both the Chieftain and its replacement the Challenger 2 until 2000 when it was finally withdrawn from service.
