Scimitar Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle

Scimitar Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle

The vehicle's exceptionally low ground pressure and small size make it useful where the terrain is hostile and movement difficult. Scimitar carries a 30mm Rarden cannon for self-defence. It is used by reconnaissance regiments of the Royal Armoured Corps and 'recce' elements of the armoured infantry.
