Reality

The Warrior (FV510) is an Infantry Fighting Vehicle designed to carry 7 troops under armour to an objective and give them firepower support when they have disembarked. It has the speed and manoeuvrability to keep up with Challenger MBT's and the firepower to support the panzers.

It replaced the FV430 series of APC's.

While not a MICV like the Spam Bradley, it is better protected although weak under armour has been highlighted after several Warriors were destroyed in Afghanistan by mines.

Perception

Great big thrumming beast of a thing with a big growly engine and full of blokes who, when not asleep or having a wank in the drivers compartment, are the best Infantry in the world.

Goes really quick anywhere you want to take it, and stops bloody sharp-ish too.

To compensate for its speed, presence and protection it is equipped with comedy weapons that need precognitive abilities (Think I'll need HE in three rounds time) or (when using the Chaingun), a patient and slow moving enemy, "firing now", BANG, clunk, "stoppage, feck hang on a bit - bollocks - dropped the spinny thing"
