UK + Europe should field same kind of light and heavy tanks instead. Sweden has got light tank and in heavy either one of Challenger , Leclerc ( France) Leopard (Germany) these two kind are good enough. If they develop these two platforms and mass produce them for all the forces it will keep the cost down and help them to maintain a big tank fleet.This is just one of the options. The UK recently unveiled a tank upgrade. No final decision has been made yet. However, it is clear that British tanks and infantry fighting vehicles need to be replaced.
Modern tanks are getting expensive just like fighter jets so it's better to use a common fighting vehicle.
