This kit can be assembled to recreate a Challenger 1 used by British forces, or also NATO troops. Nylon mesh is included to recreate the baskets encircling the turret. Two highly realistic figures are included; one depicts a bescarfed commander in desert conditions, while the other captures a commander in the distinctive NATO cold-climate uniform.
