The FV510 Warrior tracked vehicle family are a series of British armoured vehicles, originally developed to replace the older FV430 series of armoured vehicles. The Warrior started life as the MCV-80 project that was first broached in the 1970s, GKN Sankey/Defence winning the production contract in 1980. Gkn defence has since been purchased by BAE systems. A total of 789 FV510 and variants were manufactured for the British Army, and 254 of a modified version (Desert Warrior) were produced for the Kuwaiti Army.

Republic of Coruscant usage

Many FV510s made in the Republic of Coruscant are licensed copies of the British-made Warriors used in the Free Western Army. The Coruscantis perfer this IFV over the M2 Bradley due to mechanical flaws in the Bradley's turret stemming from neglect during the Enclave occupation.

Behind the Scenes

The FV510 model in Garry's Mod actually has a revolving turret, unlike the M2 Bradley which is just a static model with no movable turret. Evidently, British designs are superior.
