Re: Regarding the Challengers L11A5 Gun

My apologies, Chieftain did end up getting TOGS to replace the searchlight, it was designated the Mk11. TOGS Chieftains came to the Regiment in late 88 by mid 89 all were fully equiped.

Re: Regarding the Challengers L11A5 Gun

Second source says that Charm I (L26 specified) entered service in 1991, hence there is a factual mistake somewhere, or we do not use Charm I in the game. https://www.gov.uk/depleted-uranium One of the earliest assessments of the risks of using DU munitions was by the US in 1974.
