Pictured: The Ajax being tested in extreme weather conditions in Sweden. Ajax, the British Army’s new generation of armoured fighting vehicle, has been put through its paces during cold weather trials in Sweden. The Ajax’s all-weather capability was tested in the wintry conditions of frozen Lapland, where the temperatures regularly dropped to minus 30 Celsius. Service personnel from the Household Cavalry Regiment based in Wiltshire successfully and accurately illustrated the Ajax platforms capacity to operate in extremely cold weather and fire on the move. The soldiers from the Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment marked a significant milestone during the overseas trials, becoming the first Field Army crew to fire the Ajax at home or abroad. The combat vehicles mobility over difficult terrain and its high standard of protection, Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) will provide a world-leading competitive advantage. Six variants of the Ajax family will allow the Army to operate in all weathers, 24 hours a day.
