Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank patrolling outside Basra, Iraq MOD 45148325

The Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank has served the Federal Army for nearly three decades; it has since been replaced by the Conquer II-class Assault Repulsor Tank as the Main Battle Tank of the Federal Army through the New Fleet Modernization Program.

Despite the NFMP, several Challenger 2 units have received upgrades to keep them operational, as anti-repulsor mines and certain planetary environments make repulsor technology inoperative. The other units have been sold to help fund the NFMP. The Challenger 2 was designed and produced by Striker Heavy Munitions Works.
