CONQUEROR ARV Mk.1 & 2 (FV.219 & FV.222)

From the project called “FV.200 Universal Tank” with which it was intended to create a family of armored vehicles that would cover the entire spectrum of missions of the British Army, finally only 3 vehicles came into service. One of them was the FV.214 Conqueror heavy tank and the other two were two armored recovery vehicles (ARVs) designated as FV.219 and FV.222 intended primarily to support the aforementioned Conqueror tank.
