It is one of the two EU counterparts, with the Leopard 2A6, to the MEC T90, the USMC M1A2 Abrams, and the PLA Type 98. The difference between the MBTs are mostly for cosmetic purposes thus all of them possess the same in terms of stats. MBTs are amongst the heaviest assault vehicles available to the factions.
Armed with a cannon as its primary weapon, the Challenger 2 is capable of doing significant damage to all manner of vehicle and infantry, although its slow rate of fire and inability to aim at a particularly steep angle make it unsuited to combat against aerial vehicles. It spawns with 40 rounds.
As a secondary weapon, the Challenger 2 is armed with an M2HB, capable of inflicting heavy damage against soft targets, killing an infantryman in just two shots. The M2HB has unlimited ammunition but the driver must be wary that this weapon overheats from excessive use.
The gunner mans the cupola-mounted M2, identical to the stationary M2s on the map. The gunner's weapon deals more damage albeit at a slower rate of fire, compared to the driver's. As with the other MBTs, the Challenger 2 also has defensive smoke grenade launchers to help escape anti-tank threats. Compared to its other national counterparts, the FV4034 is considerably larger, making it harder to avoid enemy fire.
