The Challenger 1 Mk.2 is a new prototype tank for the United Kingdom that appeared in the Magna Carta DLC for Wargame: AirLand Battle. It has improved accuracy from a Thermal Observation & Gunnery System, as well as better ammo giving it increased attack power.
The Challenger tank was first came into service in the 1980s it was designed to counter Soviet tanks like the T-72 but it didn't see combat in Europe in 1991 it saw some combat in Desert Storm against Iraqi T-55 and T-72 tanks and in the Iraq War and War on Terror.
Like all British tanks, the Challenger 1 Mk.2 sacrifices speed and range in order to pack heavy armor and a powerful main gun. So its usage remians largely the same as its predecessors, to function as a slow moving fortress capable of taking a lot of punishment while giving out its own.
