Tamiya presents the British Challenger 2 MBT to the Military Miniature Series, further adding to the 1/35 scale MM Iraq series of models.

Compared to the Challenger 1 MBT that saw service during the Gulf War, the Challenger 2 features improved second generation Chobham armor capable of withstanding armor piercing and shape charge rounds. The fire control system was updated with the latest digital technology, including a panoramic Commander"s sight with built-in laser rangefinder and a thermal gunner"s sight.

The 120mm L30 rifled main gun provides improved muzzle velocity and accuracy, and enables the Challenger 2 to discharge armor piercing, HESH, smoke and
depleted uranium rounds. Special modifications to tanks deployed to Iraq included reactive armor added to the front, composite armor on the sides, a special cover to reduce exhaust heat, canvas skirts to reduce dust ingestion, Commander"s Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) and Combat Identification Panels (CIP).

  • Accurate replication of Challenger 2 tank including new turret and 120mm 55 caliber smoothbore main gun.
  • Moveable parts include main gun and CITV.
  • Features new accurately replicated tracks and wheels.
  • CITV and gunner's sight lens cover can be assembled opened or closed.
  • Transparent parts used to replicate gun sight lens, headlights, tail lights and rotating light.

WWSM Says: -

Great to build and compare with previously released British MBT including the Centurion (89555), Chieftain (35068) and Challenger 1 (35154) or other vehicles active in Iraq such as the U.S. M1A2 Abrams (35269).
