Have a look at this beauty in action: the UK’s Challenger II MBT. It’s a clip from the BBC Scotland:

BBC Scotland’s Cameron Buttle takes a closer look at one of the army’s most impressive pieces of battlefield weaponry. The 65 tonne Challenger tank, the biggest in the British army, has been on display at an open day in West Lothian.
