The Challenger 1 FALCON (Chall. 1 Falc. in-game) is a tier 8 Main Battle Tank originating from the United Kingdom and Jordan. It is a Premium Vehicle sold as part of one of the new Collector's Editions.

This is a special event premium vehicle and can only be purchased during special sales events.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy Armor : the vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits.
  • High Caliber : the high-caliber weaponry deals an increased damage.
  • 360 Smoke Concealment : vehicle fires smoke launchers in all directions.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]


This tank is quite difficult to play. It cannot reliably bounce shells in a brawl, cannot flank and reposition due to the poor mobility, and cannot snipe due to the bad accuracy on its main gun. Hope that the enemy has someone else to shoot at and try to move in on their side or rear.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • It's a premium, so additional credit generation.
  • Generally well armored, and comes with an unmanned turret
  • Large health pool

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Low top speed and acceleration compared to other tier 8 vehicles
  • Lacks the ERA upgrade of the Challenger 1 at tier 7
  • A number of weakspots, notably the large, flat cheeks at the back of the turret
  • Poor gun handling and a generally underwhelming gun
  • Easy to set on fire

Suggested Research Order[edit | edit source]

This is a premium tank, there are no modules to research.

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

This is a premium tank, as such there is only the stock set of vehicle upgrades available.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Augmented Breech Lock or Magnetic Actuators in the Universal slot, Internal Hull Reinforcement in one of the Armor slots and either Spall Liner or Reinforced Engine Housing in the other, Intercoms in the Technology slot.

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As the tank has an autoloader, the crew only consists of a driver and gunner. First skills should be Spin to Win and Quick Draw, second skills should be Off Road Driving, and a choice between

Marksman and Do the Twist for the gunner.

The Challenger 1 Falcon utilizes the standard hull with a low profile unmanned turret that retains the strong composites of the frontal arc. This reduces weight while retaining protection, improving both vehicle and crew survivability.

History[edit | edit source]

Successor to the Chieftain line of vehicles, the Challenger 1 was developed in the late 1970s by the United Kingdom. Although this main battle tank was eventually superseded by the Challenger 2, modifications have been made to the Challenger 1 by the Jordanian army; specifically, the addition of the unmanned Falcon turret. The Challenger 1 Falcon features a 120mm smoothbore gun, a lower profile, and offers additional protection to it's crew.
