RCF Bolt and Nut has experience on military contracts, supplying special-grade axle bolts to BAE systems for use on the Warrior infantry rank and the Challenger 2 battle tank. We’re proud to have played a part in the construction of vital weapons vehicles, contributing to the security of British troops.
The FV4034 Challenger 2 (designated ‘CR2’ by the Ministry of Defence) is a third-generation battle tank that serves troops from the United Kingdom and Oman. RCF contributed components to the design and build undertaken by the British company Vickers Defence Systems – now known as BAE Systems Land and Armaments.
Working to exact specifications
As suppliers to BAE Systems for the construction of tanks, RCF Bolt and Nut was required to work to the most stringent materials specifications. A unique client for the company, the project required the RCF team to work alongside Government agencies at all levels.
