Tankograd British Spezial No. 9020: Challenger 1 - The Last Cold War Era Tank of Britain\'s Armoured Corps.
The FV4030/4 Challenger 1 MBT was the last vehicle of its type developed and fielded by the British Army during the Cold War era. Procured as a stop-gap measure in the early 1980s to replace part of the ageing fleet of FV4201 Chieftain MBTs, the new vehicle was intended to battle Warsaw Pact armour on the plains of northern Germany in the event of the Cold War ever turning hot. This publication tells in great detail the development history, describes the technology, Challenger 1 variants Mk 1, 2 and 3, the CRARRV, the Training Tank, the Al Hussein as well as the MBT in action during IFOR, SFOR, KFOR and in Operation Granby.

Illustrated with 128 colour photographs and 5 b&w photographs.
