Are these special purpose tanks Mat?

Are there new combat tanks too (with a gun turret)?

These are the new assault engineer tanks we have, that have replaced our aging Chieftain engineer tanks

one is a bridgelayer, which can lay a 26 meter bridge in just over 2 mins the other is the battlefield assault tank used for mine clearance, and obstacle clearance,

these do not have turrets fitted

they weigh over 60 tons and have a top speed of around 50mph

these vehicles are very loosely based on the challenger II battle tank which is a turreted MBT
