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.
Are the British Challenger tanks equipped with Battlefield management systems? One more thing, are Challengers tanks comparabe to Leclerc/Leopard?

proven battle field experince .Question should be the other way round .

Future of armour? Too hot and sweaty. Clanks when you walk, and the horses hate it. Can't see it making a comeback myself.

Actually, one of my friends, who was in the U.S. army, told me Abrams and Leopard are the most advanced tanks in the world. When I asked about Challenger, he was not so impressed.
