The Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle has the speed and performance to
keep up with Challenger 2 Main Battle Tanks over the most difficult
terrain, and the firepower and armour to support infantry in the
assault. A highly successful armoured fighting vehicle, Warrior can be
fitted with Enhanced Armour and is continuously being updated; for
example, the Battlegroup Thermal Imager (BTI) is being fitted to
increase its night-fighting capability. Warrior infantry command and
section vehicles carry a turret mounted 30 mm Rarden cannon that will
defeat light armoured vehicles out to 1,500 m. An 8x magnification
image-intensifying night sight is fitted, and eight 94 mm Light
Anti-Armour Weapon (LAW) HEAT rockets can be stowed in the vehicle.
Warrior variants include artillery observation post vehicle (OPV) and
command post vehicle (CPV), and a Royal Mechanical and Electrical
Engineers (REME) recovery and repair vehicle. All variants are equipped
