Jordan has hired Alvis to upgrade its Scorpion light tanks and other vehicles of this family. The upgrade includes a diesel engine and various minor improvements. Jordan bought used vehicles including Scorpion tanks, Spartan APCs, Sultan command vehicles, Samaritan ambulances, and Samson recovery vehicles from Belgium. A few old Scorpions which Iraq captured from Iran and gave to Jordan won't be upgraded as they are in too bad a shape. --Stephen V Cole
