The Chieftain 900 by Vickers was a privately developed, experimental version of the Chieftain, designed in the early 1980s for export. It included a new turret, better composite armor and a more powerful 900hp engine (hence the name). While it wasn't successful, some of its elements were used in the development of the Challenger MBT.

The Chieftain 900 utilizes a significantly uparmored Mk.5 series hull with a new turret utilizing the latest in new composite armors. Although the turret performed well, the need to replace the outdated hull design eventually led to the development of the Challenger.
