Warrior Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle

BACKGROUND

The British Army's Warrior group of vehicles, built by Alvis Vehicles (formerly GKN Defence,) are a battlefield tested range of highly reliable and efficient vehicles tested in both the Middle East, and on United Nations operations in Bosnia. Almost 800 Warriors are in service with Mechanised Divisions of the British Armed Forces. This Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle carries a driver, commander, gunner, and up to a maximum of 8 passengers, (two fully equipped British Army Fire Teams,) and is capable of operating for up to 48 hours non-stop in NBC conditions. Noted below is the standard layout for the Warrior, but it is capable of fielding a variety of different weapons.

The Warrior's roles are varied and it can be used as an Infantry Section Vehicle, Infantry Command, Repair or Recovery Vehicle, Observation Post Vehicle, Artillery Command or carrying Vehicle or an Anti-Tank Weapon Carrying Vehicle. The aluminium armour construction provides protection against 14.5mm armour piercing rounds, 155mm air burst shell fragments and 9 kg anti-tank mines. Applique armour can be added to provide enhanced protection against threats. The AFV is capable of also carrying weapon fits ranging from machine pistols to 90 mm guns, mortars and missile systems.

WEAPON SYSTEMS:

1. BOEING BUSHMASTER II 30 MM CANNON: Connected firectly to the front of the electrically operated turret, (designed by Delco which can traverse through a full 360,) is the AFV's primary weapon on a stabilised mount which permits the Gunner to fire the weapon whilst the vehicle is moving without any noticeable degradation in aiming ability. 2. TOW II ANTI-TANK MISSILES: (2) The TOW, (Tube-Launched Optically Tracked Wire-Guided,) Missile System is primarily used in antitank warfare, and is a command to line of sight, wire-guided weapon. The system will operate in all weather conditions which has been in use since 1970. The TOW system has had numerous improvements during its time including a thermal beacon guidance system enabling the gunner to more easily track a target at night and giving a bonus to hit targets. 3. M240 7.62MM MACHINE GUN: Fitted to the turret of the AFV is a Machine Gun for anti-personnel use. An ammo hopper sits on the side of the machine gun allowing the weapon to be quickly reloaded compared to belt-fed machine guns. 3. SMOKE GRENADE LAUNCHERS: (10) The AFV has externally mounted on the left and right sides of the turret ten grenade launchers, (5 per side,) for laying down smoke to permit the AFV to provide cover for troops with it, or so as to evade hostile forces.
