The Challenger 2, derived from the Challenger 1, is a main battle tank (MBT) currently in service with the armies of the United Kingdom and Oman. It was designed and built by British Vickers Defense Systems (now known as BAE Systems Land and Armaments). Considered to be the world's most reliable tank, the Challenger 2 provides high-level protection against direct fire weapons. It was used in the 2003 invasion of Iraq and is said to be capable of enduring 14 hits from rocket-propelled grenades and one MILAN anti-tank missile. One Challenger 2 MBT costs about US$8 million.
