That's just a Challenger tank with a black skin on on it.

 

Typical WG just trying to make money from selling the same thing again.

Besides the fact that this has absolutely nothing to do with gameplay or this game in any way, this is just a lame regular Challenger, nothing new at all....

It is not an ordinary challenger 2 nor is it an approved replacement. This is the BAE option for the Challenger 2 Continuous Life Improvement Program (CLP) which replaces certain obcelecent components such  as the sighting systems and the applique armour.  There are other competitors bidding for the contract such as Rheinmettal so this may be the upgrade chosen but it is not yet decided.

It is in fact a Challenger IICLP, being touted for sale by BAE Systems.

 

It seems that in painting it Black and referring to it as "Black Knight" BAE Systems are taking a  cue from the WG playbook for tank sales.

 

Frankly that is probably a good thing. WG seem to have export sold more tanks (pixel) than BAE have sold tanks (real ones). But I suppose the tanks from BAE cost just a smidgeon more than those from WG.

About 20 years ago I was delivering to a company located across the road from the Vickers plant in Leeds. I was sat in my cab waiting when, all of a sudden, I heard a great roar and one of these bloody things appeared over a low ridge and grounded, that's right it took off!

 

Me, the van and all the stock in it shook like a jelly.

 

It really shook me up as I couldn't hear it until it appeared. Then it raced off at about 35-40mph down another slope and disappeared.

 

Amazing machine.
