Challenger 1's

Was wondering this morning driving to work, what happened to all of our Challenger 1 tanks, when they were replaced by Challenger 2.

Cheers

Gaz lad, I’m getting worried about you as you know the answer to this question, England’s war criminal also the man who ran the country into massive debt whilst lining his own pockets and friend to world terrorists like Gadhafi and jerry Addams, the one and only “Tony Blair” sold them for £1 each to one of the middle eastern countries, no wonder this country is in such a state.

Gaz

Most but not all were sold under the Op Al Hussein banner to Jordan, they did go for £1 which caused a out roar BUT as usual why let the truth get in the way of a good story. The Jordanian had to pay a huge amount for support, training and the simulators all of which left MoD not to badly off for a fleet of old tanks that were not on a par with the rest of the major producers

Just been looking on youtube, and typed in "Jordan tanks and Vehicles", some very interesting shots of the Challenger 1's some even been adapted to acommadate a turret called the "Falcon Turret", have a look and see what you think.

almost sure its a challey they put a tarp over the turret but from what i can see it is too straight edged to be a chieftain. I will get a better look and report back.
