About the FV101 Scorpion/FV107 Scimitar – Light Tank:

Essentially the same in their general composition, the FV101 Scorpion and FV107 Scimitar are tracked reconnaissance combat vehicles developed by the British in the late 1960s. The primary difference is armament; the Scorpion is armed with a 76mm cannon while the Scimitar is fit with a 30mm L21A1 RARDEN cannon. In the early 90s during the first Gulf War, a group of Scimitars knocked out an Iraqi T-62 medium tank by penetrating its frontal armor with an armor-piercing round. The Scimitar's 30mm cannon can be also used against helicopters and even low-flying aircraft. It is claimed that during the Falklands War a Scimitar hit an Argentinean Skyhawk attack aircraft at a range of 1000 meters.
