Is that not "one of only two in private hands"? I thought Nick Mead had one as well?

I dont think Nicks is Chally one (although Im not an expert on these so could be wrong). I had heard that Nicks was MBT80 or similar but with a Chally turret popped on top...

They did but most were gifted to Jordan. Problem with acquiring one of these isthe armour. The MOD will not let one with armour into private hands. It can beremoved of course and built up so the cosmetic covers can be put back but it isexpensive.

ah I see, so you can buy one but would have to take off the armour stuff?

 

Dose this not apply to other AFV that come up for sale???

Specializing in armoured and tracked, I always have a varied selection of vehicles and spares in stock.

Help and advice is always at hand, and I welcome visitors to my Kent warehouse.

As a trained and qualified engineer, I can inspect and negotiate a deal on any vehicle you are considering purchasing-getting you the best deal and quality.

Want to drive a tank? No problem.

I have private roads for you to use, and tanks from Scorpion CVR(T) to Challenger main battle tank!

Chobham armour, now Dorchester armour is still secret. If any vehicle is fitted with it it will not be disposed of by the MOD. The Challenger, 1 and 2, gate guardians have had the armour removed. The armour is still secret after all so it will only be supplied to our allies and not just sold on the open market.

 

Any non clever armour such as 432 etc is not secret.
