The Mk. 7 uses the same L11A5 120mm rifled gun that the Challenger I uses. Shell loadout is identical and works well for mid-Cold War era tanks such as the Type 90, Leopard 2A4, T-64/T-72/T-80B, etc., but may struggle when fighting more modern vehicles such as the Leopard 2A5, T-80U, Leclerc, etc.

In the mid 1980's Vickers Defence Systems developed a new MBT as a private venture to find a successor to the Challenger back in following official specifications. The Vickers Mk. 7 is a further development of the earlier Vickers Mk.4 Valiant main battle tank. The tank was very similar to the Mk.4, using the same "Valiant" or universal turret that the Mk. 4 uses, but being built with a Leopard 2 chassis, along with engine supplied by Krauss-Maffei. The tank was never adopted into service by the British Army, but it's design was used as a base for the Challenger II MBT. The Vickers Mk.7 tank was actively offered for possible export customers, however it also received no production orders from other countries. Therefore only one Vickers Mk.7 prototype has been built.

Description

GarageImage Vickers Mk.7.jpg


The Vickers Mk.7 is a rank VI British medium tank with a battle rating of 9.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.93 "Shark Attack".

General info

Survivability and armour

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat? If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Mobility

Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and manoeuvrability, as well as the maximum speed forwards and backwards.

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in a bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

In the mid 1980's, Vickers Defence Systems developed a new MBT as a private venture to find a successor to the Challenger back in following official specifications. The Vickers Mk.7 is a further development of the earlier Vickers Mk.4 Valiant main battle tank. The tank was very similar to the Mk.4, using the same "Valiant" or universal turret that the Mk.4 used, but being built with a Leopard 2 chassis, along with an MTU engine supplied by Krauss-Maffei. The tank was never adopted into service by the British Army, but its design was used as a base for the Challenger II MBT. The Vickers Mk.7 tank was actively offered for export, however it also received no production orders from other countries. Therefore only one Vickers Mk.7 prototype has been built.

Despite its naming, the tank has no relation to the Mk.1 Vickers MBT sitting at rank V.

Vickers, using the German-built Leopard 2 chassis, was therefore prevented from making sales to the most promising potential buyer of the Mk.7 - the United Arab Emirates.

Due to the high production costs resulting in low foreign interest in the vehicle, as well as dependency on outside factors, further development of the Vickers Mk.7 was officially halted, with only a single prototype being built for testing. However, although the Vickers Mk.7 itself became, in the end, another failed project, much of the experiences gained during its development found use in the creation of the far more successful Challenger 2.

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
