Initially a post-war occupation force the BAOR (British Army on the Rhine) held key positions in NATO’s NORTHAG area, defending the northern parts of West Germany.
Unfortunately, the North German Plain was excellent tank country which the Warsaw Pact was expected to exploit to the best of its ability using its vast superiority in numbers of armoured vehicles. However, the British were in possession of some of the world’s best MBTs in the form of the heavily armoured and big gunned Chieftain and its successor the Challenger.
These along with highly professional infantry and light forces equipped with anti-tank guided missiles, were expected to sell themselves dearly in the best traditions of the British Army. Their primary task was to hold up the Warsaw Pact advances long enough to give reinforcements from the United States time to deploy and stabilise the front lines.
