The Challenger 2 Life Extension Project is being taken to the Ministry of Defence's Investment Approvals Committee for a main investment decision before the end of the year. The Warrior Capability Sustainment Project is currently in the Demonstration Phase. The Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) for the WCSP Manufacture Phase was released to Lockheed Martin UK (LMUK) in June 2020 with continued dialogue between the parties. LMUK's formal response to the ITN is anticipated in December 2020. It would not be appropriate to comment further on this ongoing commercial activity.
