Further development of the Chalenger 1 by Vickers Defence Systems resulted in the Challenger 2 MBT, of which 386 ave been ordered by the British Army, with deliveries running from 1994 through to 2000.
Oman has ordered 18 Challenger 2's. With the introduction of Challenger 2, all remaining Chieftain and Challenger 1 MBT's will be phased out of services with the British Army. Although similar in appearance to the Challenger 1, The challenger 2 has many improvements including a brand new turret armed with the latest 120mm L30 rifled tank gun firing a new APFSDS-T (Armour piercing Fin Discarding Sabot Tracer) projectile with a depleted uranium penerator.
The new computerized fire control system, all electric gun control and stabilizing system, and stabilized sights for the commander and gunner give a high degree of frist round hit probability under both day and night conditions. Standard equipment includes a thermal camera over the manlet of the 120mm gun which provides a picture for gunner and commander, as well as an NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) system, mounting points for additional fuel drums at the rear, and mounting points for a combat dozer blade at the front of the hull.
