Inside The Tanks: FV4201 Chieftain


Join Richard "The Challenger" Cutland as he takes us inside Britain's main battle tank between the 1960s and 1990. A successor of the famed Centurion, the Chieftain saw decades of service with various nations throughout the world and, in many ways, proved ahead of its time with formidable protection and firepower.

If you watched our 5 Cool Things About The Chieftain video, you'd know that the Chieftain is best known for its remarkable L11A5 120 mm gun, which holds the world record for the longest recorded tank shot while mounted on the Challenger 1. Hungry for more Chieftain insights? Watch the video below!

We had a blast at Tankfest this year, teaming up with The Tank Museum in Bovington for the Tankfest Online Historical Livestream at the weekend. If you still can't get enough tanks, visit and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more tank chats and news of exciting events and features!
