Armed with a 120mm gun with a range of five miles and protected by armour twice as strong as steel, the British Army's Challenger II Main Battle Tank is one of the most awesome war machines ever built. And, in March 2003, three Squadrons of Challenger IIs from the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards prepared for war in Basra in Southern Iraq.
From the terrifying rescue of a stricken Challenger II and countless nerve-shredding raids into Basra and Az Zubayr, to the biggest tank battle fought by the British since the end of WWII, Main Battle Tank is the brutal, blistering true story of a war that tested man and machine to the bloody limit.
