The Challenger 2 is a vehicle featured in the Euro Force expansion for Battlefield 2, operated operated by the European Union. It is one of the two EU counterparts (alongside the Leopard 2A6) to the MEC T90, the USMC M1A2 Abrams, and the PLA Type 98. The difference between the MBTs are almost purely cosmetic, and all of them possess the same armor, damage, rate of fire, and velocity stats, among other things.
The MBTs are the heaviest land vehicles available to any of 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. As a secondary weapon, the Challenger 2 is armed with an M2HB which is capable of killing an infantryman in just two rounds, but lacks the punch of the main cannon and has no explosive radius. The Challenger 2's main cannon is equipped with only forty rounds to start, while the secondary weapon has infinite ammunition. However, the main cannon is limited only by the speed of the reload, while the coaxial machinegun has an overheat threshold where it will temporarily cease to be usable once overheated.
The passenger is armed with another M2, this one cupola-mounted, identical to the stationary M2 which is found as a static emplacement on certain maps, whose damage is higher than the coaxial MG's -- at 100 damage, making it a one-hit kill under the right conditions -- but whose rate of fire is noticeably lower than the coaxial's.
As with the other MBTs, the Leopard 2 has a smoke screen grenade which can be launched by the driver to break line of sight.
The Challenger 2 is the largest of the MBTs, and as such it makes for a much more significant target than many of its counterparts.
