Sorry codders but the Warrior in no where near the size of a tank!! Take Challenger 2 she weigh's in at 65 Ton in the lightest configuration! and Warrior not classed as a tank it is either an APC, Repair vehicle or OPC configuration.

There are several classes of tank - the Challenger is an MBT - I say again - the Warrior is as big as SOME tanks!!!

I am well aware a Warrior is an APC - as was the FV432 before it.

Ok I hear what you say however If your thinking of Scorpion, or Scimiter as small tanks the your mistaken these are Recccy cars with very little fire power and NOT DF AP.

Scorpions are classified as light tanks - the Warrior - whilst not as big as MBT is certainly up there with the medium tanks - not much difference in size between it and a T72 for example!!!

Codders, the MoD definition of a tank is "An heaviley armourd 'A' Vehicle fitted with a Direct Fire armament capable of defeating heavy armour" Scorpion is incapable of this therefore fall out side the Tank definition.
