Challenger 2 damaged in Iraq

A Challenger 2 tank has been penetrated by a roadside bomb in Iraq leaving the driver with serious injuries, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed.

A bit of a first I think, & get well soon mate.

This is the same incident that Michael Yon first reported in his blog as an embed with British troops in Basra which happened on 6 April.
Just heard the BBC PM News mention the CR2 incident. You could almost hear the glee of the Beeb Guardinistas celebrating the fact that a CR2 has been disabled (M Kill only) by the Iran backed militias. Wa*nkers.

Best of luck to the Guy who was injured.
