Work on the FV 510 Warrior infantry fighting vehicle project for the British army began in the late 1970s at GKN Defense, but the official order was not placed until May 1986. The total demand was set at 1053 vehicles, most of which - 789 were delivered by 1994. The units received were added to eight motorized infantry battalions of the British armed forces. Two of them were stationed in the UK, the remaining six in Germany.
