The Vickers Mk.7 is a tier 8 Premium MBT originating from the United Kingdom and is available for gold in the Armored Warfare web shop. It is essentially a heavily armored British turret mounted on a Leopard 2 chassis that has also been up-armored. In real life, the vehicle was designed and proposed by the Vickers company to replace the Challenger 1 series of main battle tanks in British military service. The tank boasts good armor, mobility, a special camo with decals, decent view range, and a stock level 5 crew.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

The Vickers is a good jack of all trades but master of none, depending on play style and tiering. In a match where it is top tier, it can use its armor to brawl or push.  In a match where it is bottom to mid-tier, it can easily offer second line or sniping and be a good hull down fighter, flank, or scout. However, like most vehicles in the Leopard line or using a Leopard 2 chassis even a bit too much angling of the side can allow for penetration by enemy fire.

History[edit | edit source]

Britain began development of this MBT prototype in the early 1980’s. The tank was designed on Vickers’ initiative to replace the Challenger. However, the British military did not accept it, and buyers were not found on the foreign market, although many of its design elements were used to build the Challenger 2.
