With last deliveries taking place in 2014, may have been the last fully British tracked armour design.

An article in the Daily Mail on Terrier, with some great images:

It really does look like something out of Mad Max.

Excellent vehicle.

Are the French still pretending to be interested?

They recently upgraded their own engineering vehicles, dunno if it's the ones that do a similar job, but there's been absolutely no mention of it.

I'd be surprised if they ever mention it again at this point. They know they can kill off UK AFV production by not ordering it.

They'll get it anyway, compliments of the joint intervention force (operative this year, some time still to be announced).

Must say it does quite a lot for its weight!
- air-transportability
- the French bring to the party their air-droppable engineering plant; a capability well demonstrated when they took, and then rapidly improved that airfield in Mali, thus taking the fight right into the heart of the rebel "held" areas

BAE Systems Pitching Terrier to Asia-Pacific Customers
BAE Systems is pitching its recently updated Terrier Combat Engineer Vehicle (CEV) to militaries in the Asia-Pacific region, officials from the UK-headquartered group have told IHS Jane's .

Speaking at the Singapore Airshow 2016, which concluded on 21 February, Rory Breen, head of export sales for BAE Systems Land (UK), said the company sees "solid opportunities" for sales of the Terrier in the region. In pursuit of exports, BAE Systems is in talks with several potential customers including Singapore and Australia, he said.

Army Recognition is reporting that Terrier is too expensive.

While that may or may not be true, why is this story being run now? Is anyone seriously considering buying Terrier at the moment?

The article doesn't say that the French (or any other potential customer) think the Terrier is too expensive; instead it appears that this is the opinion of Army Recognition.

Very odd and unprofessional reporting.
