The Challenger 2 ATDU (Armoured Trials and Development Unit) is an advanced component testbed, operated by a unit bearing the same name.

The Armored Warfare variant of the vehicle consists of existing, previously developed components that have, however, never been put together on a single vehicle.

Vehicle Traits[ | ]

  • Armored: This vehicle's armor can withstand a lot of punishment, allowing it to survive even serious firefights.
  • Heavy Weapon: This vehicle carries one of the largest weapons around with significantly increased damage per shot.
  • HESH Rounds: This vehicle can fire special Squash Head rounds. These are extremely effective against angled armor that is typical for Soviet tanks.
  • PISH Rounds: This vehicle features an advanced version of HESH rounds that can, apart from being effective against angled armor, also penetrate thin spaced armor plates.
  • Adjustable Suspension: This vehicle features a hydraulic suspension that allows you to manually change its ground clearance.
  • Hydraulic Suspension: This vehicle's advanced hydraulic suspension allows you to tilt its hull to the front, to the rear and to each side for improved gun elevation and depression angles.
