The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (commonly known as the United Kingdom, the UK and incorrectly Britain and England) is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain,Northern Ireland, and many smaller islands.

Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another sovereign state—the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea, the English Channel and the Irish Sea.

The United Kingdom is a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system, with its seat of government in the capital city of London. It is a country in its own right and consists of four countries: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.


British tanks are heavily armored, but very slow. Proper positioning before battle will enable to get the best out of them. In contrast, their infantry has extremely light and mobile troop transport and armored support vehicles. Their infantry is highly trained, allowing for roadblocks with ATGMs on standby.

Overview - Wargame Airland BattleEdit

The United Kingdom is one of the major nations in Wargame, with slow but powerful tanks, good infantry, especially Royal Marines, and a good air force. Although they lack SEAD, that is not a major disadvantage as their air force can still be used effectively. Paratroopers are good at assaulting towns with their SMGs, and a CQC machine gun. When supported by heavy tanks, such as the Challenger 1, which has a fantastic gun and an armour value of 19 on the front, they are a formidable weapon. Overall, the UK are best on the defensive, and are a very well armoured deck that fit perfectly in a two man team with a French deck.

Overview - Wargame Red Dragon Edit

In Red Dragon, the British are much the same as in AirLand Battle. They retain their amazing infantry, in particular the SAS and Royal Marines, who excel at their roles with superb equipment and training. The Royal Marines can easily take on any infantry unit, and destroy tanks from the trees with little to no difficulty, whilst the SAS can take on tanks and aircraft, although they tend to struggle against other infantry.

Their air force is arguably good; while they have one of the best air superiority fighters in the game - the Eurofighter Typhoon - and the incredibly effective Lynx 3, which is armed with both anti air and anti tank missiles, they have very few helicopters. Aside from the aforementioned Eurofighter Typhoon and the Harrier GR.7, there is nothing particularly impressive about their jets.

They have decent artillery, but nothing particularly impressive. However their anti-air support units are very impressive, with the Challenger Marksman being a very effective radar guided anti-air unit capable of withstanding a SEAD missile hit. They also have the dependable Tracked Rapiers and the Stormer HVM, armed with dual role missiles capable of hitting armoured targets and aircraft from an impressive range.

The UK has one of the best armoured decks, with tanks ranging from the cheap, but reliable Chieftain series to the more expensive but highly capable Challenger series. The epitome of British tank line is the Challenger 2, the most heavily armoured tank in the game, with a frontal armour value of 23.

There is only one British ship in the game, the Type 21, however its poor performance in nearly all categories (aside from its powerful gun) make it a bad choice for any naval setup. Overall, the British possess a very good deck, with amazing infantry and tanks, some impressive air units and anti-air vehicles, and some decent artillery and vehicles.
