The British Army's 62-tonne Challenger 1 was the first of a new generation of main battle tanks when it entered service in 1983. Its most important design features were the use of the revolutionary Chobham armour system and hydrogas suspension that gave it superb cross-country performance. Challenger saw action in the 1991 Gulf War, in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the 1990s, and in Operation Joint Guardian, the NATO-led drive into Kosovo. Challenger 1 claims the longest range tank-to-tank kill in military history, when it destroyed an Iraqi tank at 3.17 miles.
The Haynes Challenger 1 Tank Manual is published in association with The Tank Museum and written by an ex-Challenger tank commander. This manual uses The Tank Museum's working Challenger 1 as its centrepiece.
This book is Hardback.

Birthday purchase for a son-in-law on his request, loves it!
A very well written book that gave me knowledge on this, one of my Favorite tanks. on a very high level. both the make of the tank and also the use of this powerful machine. the text was easy to follow and it was hard to stop reading it and it was a sad moment when I came to the last page, i will restart to reading it within a few weeks.
A really useful book. Very good if you needs detailed information for modelling.
Bought this as a nostalgia piece. I was an apprentice in the factory making the Challenger 1 in the early 1980’s and recognise some of the people in the book. I’m going to stick my deed of apprenticeship into the back and gift it to my son.
