FV4333 Stormer Armored Personnel Carrier (1981)

Authored By Staff Writer | Last Updated: 7/6/2010

The versatile Alvis Stormer continues to serve the role.

Based on the Alvis Scorpion CVR(T) model, the Stormer was a further development primarily for export. The Stormer, like its Scorpion counterpart, can be adapted to serve a variety of battlefield and peacetime roles. The Alvis Stormer Starstreak is one such adaptation, capable of mounting 8 Starstreak High Velocity Missiles in the air defense role.

Other duties for this weapons system include ambulance, battlefield recovery and command and control - not to mention its original armored personnel carrier role.
