Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:


This Challenger is fitted with long range fuel tanks on the hull rear. Its label reads: “Service history of 94 KC 38. This particular vehicle was manufactured as a prototype, and then was added to the Army’s fleet of training Challengers in 1991. After this time it was used in that role by both the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and the Royal Tank Regiment. The vehicle was transferred from the Army to the museum in January 2004, having been replaced in service by Challenger 2.”
It is not known exactly where this Challenger served, but given its training role it was likely to have been at Warminster (Salisbury Plain), or possibly Bovington.
