What's particularly interesting about this (ignoring the Brexit irony) is the price. 55% controlling stake in UKs entire armoured vehicle manufacture for £28.00 GBPm . There are flats in London for more than that. Hell some footballers cost more.

So UK's heavy armoured future is worth less than a Knightsbridge flat.
I suppose now any future Challenger III will look very leopardy

Perhaps an astute pencil pusher has seen the way forward, and it doesn't look promising for future military purchases/sales of armour (superfluous extra vowel thrown in to appease my English cousins).
