A short video clip appeared showing the British main battle tank Challenger 2 during an exercise. We’ve seen similar footage before, and now we’re waiting for the combat vehicle to appear on the front line.
The video, which lasts less than 30 seconds, shows a Challenger 2 tank driving down a dirt road. A number of soldiers were also filmed in the video. The video was not located.
