The Warrior chassis also serves as the basis for two types of armored recovery vehicles. The two man turret is not fitted. Instead there is a small one man turret with 7.62mm EX-34 chain gun.
FV512 MCRV: The most common Warrior armored recovery vehicle. MCRV stands for "Mechanized Combat Repair Vehicle". A crane is mounted on the left side and can be used to swap powerpacks of Challenger 2 tanks or other Warrior vehicles. Futhermore it carries a wide variety of tools.
FV513 MRV(R): The FV513 is similar to the FV512, but adds a large earth anchor at the rear and a 20 t winch. MRV stands for "Mechanized Recovery Vehicle (Repair)".
The FV512 and FV513 are based on the chassis of the Warrior mechanized infantry combat vehicle.
