Warrior programme at a glance
- The Warrior family of seven variants of armoured vehicles, which entered service in 1988, has been highly successful for armoured infantry battlegroups in the Gulf War, Bosnia and Kosovo and Iraq.
- DE&S is overseeing a major Capability Sustainment Programme which will keep the vehicles in service beyond 2040.
- The project will improve Warrior’s effectiveness through the integration of a fully stabilised turret, incorporating the CTAi 40mm cannon, and an upgraded Thermal Imaging primary sight.
- Other improvements include 360˚ Local Situational Awareness cameras, modular armour mounting systems and enhanced power generation and distribution.
