Royal Armoured Corps
The Royal Armoured Corps is the component of the British Army, that together with the Household Cavalry provides its armour capability, with vehicles such as the Challenger 2 Tank and the Scimitar Reconnaissance Vehicle. It includes most of the Army's armoured regiments, both the Royal Tank Regiment and those converted from old horse cavalry regiments. Today it comprises twelve regiments – eight regular and four Yeomanry. Although the Household Cavalry Regiment (The Life Guards and The Blues & Royals) are now armoured, they are not part of the RAC.
