The Challenger Armored Repair and Recovery Vehicle (CRARRV) was developed in the mid 80s. In 1985 the UK MoD signed a contract with Vickers Defence Systems to build 30 armored recovery vehicles to support the Challenger 1 main battle tank. A total of 74 ARVs were delivered to the British Army. Currently the CRARRV is used to support the newer Challenger 2 main battle tanks. The only export customer of this vehicle is Oman, which operates the Challenger 1 MBTs. Four vehicles were sold to this Middle East country. Currently it is the most powerful recovery vehicle of it's class.
The CRARRV is based on the Challenger 1 main battle tank. Instead of armament this military vehicle is fitted with a powerful winch, small crane and front-mounted dozer blade. An all-welded superstructure has been added to the vehicle.
