Scorpion FV101 combat vehicle reconnaissance (tracked) in British service 1972-2020.
The CVR(T)family of vehicles has been highly successful since its introduction by the British Army in 1972. It has seen extensive combat from the Falklands War to Afghanistan.
The combat history of CVRT is one of the most powerful aspects of the Haynes CVRT Scorpion Manual and includes accounts of its first operational deployment during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974; the Falklands War in 1982; the Gulf War in 1991; Somalia in 1993 and the Fourth Anglo-Afghan War, including the testimony of the most highly decorated soldier in the British Army, Mick Flynn, who fought in CVRT from the Falklands to Afghanistan.
