To provide confidence that the vehicle is capable of withstanding the varying environmental conditions the vehicle was subjected to a number of controlled climatic chamber trials. All requirements have been tested individually in these previous chamber trials; the in-country trial is a combination of these in a representative environment, with the inclusion of mobility aspects, ISTAR and firing trials.

The objective of the trial is to accumulate a body of evidence against the requirement set to complement sub-system test results and system-level (cold chamber) trial results.
