Neil Boston says:

Does the term 'DL-1' refer to Dorchester Level 1? I wasn't aware of the use of that term until Operation Telic, some 13 years later than the era of this conversion set. And is it correct to describe the Challenger 1 as a '1A3' variant? In Britain the designation was Mark 3 and if you think about it, 1A3 would have meant a Mk 4.
