  • Instruction manual for Challenger tank available for free download.

    Warning: Not for dial-up! We're talking some 100MB of PDF files here.

    Hull manual
    Turret manual
    Ancilliaries

    Of course, this is of slightly limited utility as the only Challengers around are museum pieces or serving in the Jordanian army, but you may find it of interest regardless.

    On a related note, I was watching a National Geographic Channel docu the other day about reconditioning M1 Abrams. I did not realise that no new chassis have been built since the mid 90s, or how old the design actually was.

      Technically, that should be that no new chassis have been built for the Americans since the early 90s. Egyptian and Saudi tanks are new-builds.

          That was an amazing programme. Did you see the hulls going in to be shot-blasted?
          The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity.

            Indeed. A fantastic process. However you can only do so much shot peen blasting before your 14mm armour becomes 13mm, 12mm, 11mm etc.
