We have unveiled Black Night – a working example of our vision for the proposed upgrade of the British Army’s Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank.
Personnel from the Royal Tank Regiment have been testing their skills in the Omani desert, as part of Exercise Saif Sareea 3. The exercise has been years in the planning and is the UK's biggest military exercise for almost 20 years.

Russia objected to GMLRS so they were left behind as "too warlike". Same reason?

Yes. The other thing to note is that Russia has omitted ERA from their recently modified tanks, from those angles on the turret that are in any way sloping downwards
... to keep any "close protection" infantry, or even the tank crew handling reloads safe? Or what might lie behind it?
