Challenger 2 British Army Tank Low-poly 3D model
FV4034 Challenger 2 is a British main battle tank MBT currently 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. The manufacturer advertises it as the
world's most reliable main battle tank. As of January 2008, two
Challenger 2s have been damaged in combat, and one destroyed by another
Challenger 2 in a friendly fire incident.
Challenger 2 is an extensive redesign from Challenger 1, the MBT from
which it was developed. It uses the basic hull and automotive parts of
its predecessor but all else is new. Fewer than 5% of components are
interchangeable. Challenger 2 has now replaced Challenger 1 in service
with the British Army and is also used by the Royal Army of Oman. It has
seen operational service in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq 2003–present.
During the 2003 invasion of Iraq the Challenger 2 tanks operating in the
Gulf suffered no total losses to enemy fire. In one engagement a
Challenger survived 14 hits from rocket propelled grenades and from one
MILAN anti tank missile.
Accurate model and suitable for inclusion into games or animations thanks to the lower polygon count.
