Ben Wallace – 2021 Comments on Challenger Tanks

The comments made by Ben Wallace, the Secretary of State for Defence, on 7 May 2021.

This represents a huge shift in the modernisation of our land forces through the increased lethality of Challenger 3. This pioneering new technology allows us to deliver immense warfighting capabilities in battlespaces filled with a range of enemy threats.

The £800 million investment will also create hundreds of highly-skilled jobs across the country ensuring our soldiers benefit from the very best of British engineering.
