As part of the Warrior Capability Sustainment Program (WCSP), it is planned to upgrade 380 units of 789 Warrior infantry fighting vehicles received by the British Army from 1987 to 1995.Of this number, 245 line and commander vehicles are planned to be upgraded to Warrior 2 under the Warrior Fightability Lethality Improvement Program (WFLIP) subroutine, which includes the installation of a new 40-mm CTA International CT40 turret with telescopic ammunition and a 24-hour fire control system.
The R & D contract for the WFLIP modernization program worth £ 200 million was awarded in March 2011 on a competitive basis by Lockheed Martin UK, the developer of the tower (which is carried out by capital reworking of the standard Warrior BMP tower) and the system integrator in general. The cost of upgrading 245 combat machines under the WFLIP program was previously set at 642 million pounds, but in fact could exceed 1 billion pounds. Serial modernization work should be carried out on the Babcock group of the former military armored repair plant in Donnington, which has been owned by the Babcock Group since 2015. Serially upgraded BMP Warrior 2 should begin to arrive in the combat units of the British army in 2020, and are expected to be in operation until 2040.
