(1 review) Write a Review

The FV4034 Challenger 2 is a British main battle tank (MBT) in service with the armies of the United Kingdom and Oman. It was designed and built by the British company Vickers Defence Systems (now known as BAE Systems Land and Armaments).

Challenger 2s have been upgraded with a new passive armour package, including the use of add-on armour manufactured by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems of Israel. When deployed on operations the Challenger 2 is now normally upgraded to TES (Theatre Entry Standard) which includes a number of modifications including armour and weapon system upgrades.

    What is that thing on back???

    Great miniature. But that little tripod thing on back.... the best I can figure is that it is an antenna mount, some form of IFF, or maybe both. Its goofy, VERY hard to trim, but goes on ok. Typical GHQ quality miniature, though the turret ring is in a hex instead of a circle, kinda wacky.
