Description: Basically the Warrior is an armored vehicle designed to provide transport and fire support to the British infantrymen. It is NBC proof and features night vision equipment. The Warrior vehicle has a heavy armor which provides protection against ballistic threats, a 30mm L21 cannon and a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun to provide fire support to dismounted troops and self-protection against other armored vehicles. The Warrior was successfully combat-proven during the Gulf War in 1991. Afterward, it was deployed in the former Yugoslavia and most recently in Iraq during operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 (Operation Telic).

The Warrior armored vehicle is powered by a single Rolls Royce CV8 diesel engine.
