Though little old, the article is an intersting one...........
Are the British Challenger tanks equipped with Battlefield management systems? One more thing, are Challengers tanks comparabe to Leclerc/Leopard?
Battlefield management systems are still relatively new. In essence, they amount to the provision of computerised information and communication systems. These include digital maps with coloured flat panel displays, which immediately show the tank commander his position on the basis of the vehicle's inertial or global positioning system (GPS), as well as those of all other tanks in the same unit. All this greatly increases commanders' tactical awareness, reducing the risk of fratricidal fire and enabling them to react more quickly.
