Agreed, but was the turret not an Alvis product or is that just another rumour?

Just found this on the Army Guide site (http://www.army-guide.com/eng/product967.html):-

The Fox has now been phased out of service with the British Army with some of the turrets removed and fitted on to Alvis Scorpion CVR(T)s which have had their turrets removed. These vehicles are then known as the Sabre.


A small number of Fox turrets were fitted on FV432 full tracked armoured personnel carriers.

Perhaps Brightwells were confused because:-

All of the welded aluminium turrets for the Fox light armoured car were manufactured by Alvis Vehicles.
