Armoured Fighting Vehicles

The list of vehicles in which the Regiment has been equipped since mechanisation reads like a roll call of those Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs) which have seen service in the British Army.

Very few AFVs of any importance were not, at some point, used by 3rd King’s Own Hussars, 4th Queen’s Own Hussars, 7th Queen’s Own Hussars, 8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars, Queen’s Own Hussars or Queen’s Royal Irish Hussars and today The Queen’s Royal Hussars are equipped with the very latest main battle tank, Challenger 2.

The vehicles listed are those used by the F-Echelon (fighting troops) only.
