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

    That was an amazing programme. Did you see the hulls going in to be shot-blasted?

    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.

    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.
