Description: CVR-T (Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance - Tracked) is a family of full tracked chassis, lightweight armored vehicles intended to fulfill a broad spectrum of roles. It was fielded by the British Army in the 1970s. CVR-T variants typically weigh between 8,000 and 9,000 kg, have a three-man crew and a top speed of 80 kilometers per hour. It is powered by a Jaguar gasoline engine providing 190-hp of power. In addition, these highly mobile vehicles are amphibious and air-transportable. The British Army deployed CVR-Ts during the Gulf War (1990-1991). CVR-Ts have been sold to international customers.
