For many years, Vickers has been a major armor producing company, having developed a number of successful export tank designs, including the Vijayanta or the Vickers Mk.3 MBT. But in the 1980s, its fortunes changed and the company hit a dry patch. In response to the situation, Vickers started working on another Main Battle Tank intended for export. The tank was supposed to be advanced enough to compete with the existing generation of MBTs but also affordable with the target group consisting of mostly third world countries that, for whatever reason (usually because of the price), couldn't operate advanced western MBTs but were unwilling to purchase Soviet tech.

In the mid-1970s, the British did come up with a new type of composite armor known as Chobham armor, named after the place where it was developed. Vickers wanted to create a very light aluminum hull and to make it capable of carrying the Chobham armor upgrade. On top of it, they'd mount a new, rather large, steel turret that they rather unimaginatively called the Universal Turret with the option to carry Chobham armor. The turret was considerably more protected than the hull and was designed to be customizable and could carry several types of weapons. The tank was named Vickers Mk.4 Valiant.

The Valiant was a failure. Undeterred, Vickers tried again, this time with the more ambitious goal of producing a tank that would replace the Challenger 1 MBT in British military service. The aluminum hull of the Valiant was generally a problem and a replacement was needed along with an improved version of the Valiant's Universal Turret. The latter was developed in the early 1980s. Using it in combination with the Mk.4 Valiant hull produced a vehicle called Vickers Mk.7. But the Valiant hull was unsatisfactory and something else was needed, something with far better protection. In the end, Vickers decided to use a modified Leopard 2 hull fitted with Chobham armor. They fitted it with the Mk.7 Universal Turret armed and called this hybrid Vickers Mk.7/2.

A single prototype was built in 1985 and the British had a look at it, but decided that they didn’t want that and no foreign customers were attracted to the pricey vehicle either. Vickers, however, used the lessons they learned from its development later with the Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank, the last British MBT designed and built in the United Kingdom.

This MBT's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable.
