This vehicle is a Sabre, a variant of CVR(T) that was produced, following the CFE reductions. The conversion was carried out by the fitting a Fox Rarden turret to a FV101 Scorpion hull at ABRO Donnington. Sabre's can be easily identified because they have an adaptor ring fitted between the hull and turret. This ring can be clearly seen in the image.
