  1. From BBC News. The British Army has 227 ageing Challenger 2 tanks. Only 148 of them will be modernised and they won't be entirely new. The Challenger 3 tank will use the existing chassis, but it will have a new digital turret and smoothbore gun. It will also have a more powerful engine. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-shropshire-57025266

It provided a series of colour images demonstrating an officially authorised pattern similar to the 'Foliage Pattern'. Previous designs, particularly the 'Mickey Mouse Ear' were hence forth forbidden. The complete article:- https://www.
