"The Warrior is a modern infantry combat vehicle of British origin also known as the MCV-80 according to its initial designation. Started in the late 1970s by GKN Sankey, its development was commissioned by the UK Army that sought a replacement for the older FV432 series. The vehicle is aimed to defend the crew from enemy gunfire and to ensure fire-power support during land operations. Its crew includes: driver, gunner, commander and seven soldiers in full gear.
The Warrior carried British troops to the battlefield during the Invasion of Iraq that started in 2003 and marked the beginning of the Iraq War. The Invasion lasted for 21 days and resulted in the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime. The campaign against the Iraqi government was conducted by the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland. Along with the War in Iraq, the Warrior vehicles were used during the Gulf War and the war in Afghanistan."
