In 1980, the now BAE Systems Land Systems purchased the manufacturing and marketing rights of the FV4333 from the British Ministry of Defence.

The vehicle was originally designed by the then Military Vehicles and Engineering Establishment (which no longer exists as such) and the first prototype made a brief appearance at the mobility demonstration at Bovington during the 1978 British Army Equipment Exhibition. In June 1981, the now BAE Systems Land Systems (at that time Alvis) announced that its development of the FV4333 had been designated Stormer.

The Stormer took advantage of the existing technology of the now BAE Systems Land Systems Scorpion CVR(T) family and many of the proven components have been used. The transmission is the same as on the CVR(T) but with a modified input gear train (with the designation changed from TN15 to T300) and the suspension uses CVR(T) components with wheel stations increased either side to six per side.

The hull of the Stormer is wider than the CVR(T) and its original petrol engine was replaced by a Cummins or Perkins Engines Company turbocharged diesel engine.

Late in 1981, Malaysia placed an order for 26 Scorpion 90 vehicles and 25 Stormer APCs, production of which commenced in 1982 with first deliveries made in 1983. Of the Stormer APCs, 12 vehicles are fitted with Thales Land & Joint Systems FVT900 one-person turrets armed with a 20 mm Oerlikon Contraves cannon and a 7.62 mm machine gun and the remainder with a now Rheinmetall Landsysteme TH-1 turret armed with twin 7.62 mm machine guns.

Further development, especially in the area of Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Durability (RAM-D), resulted in the second-generation Stormer. This vehicle, following a competition, was selected as the platform for the Thales Air Defence UK Starstreak High-Velocity Missile (HVM) system ordered by the British Army.

In 1995, the company completed the last of 145 Stormers for this contract of these, 135 were for the Starstreak High-Velocity Missile (HVM) system and the remaining 10 for the Troop Reconnaissance Vehicle (TRV) requirement.

For operation Desert Storm, the now BAE Systems Land Systems designed and built six specialised platform versions of the vehicle called the Stormer Vehicle Launched Scatterable Mine System (VLSMS). This was fitted with the Nexter Systems (previously Giat Industries) Minotaur scatterable anti-tank minelaying system to meet an urgent operational requirement.

Although it had taken delivery of the Nexter Systems Minotaur system, the British Army subsequently had a competition to meet its main requirement and two systems were then trialled, the Nexter Systems Minotaur and the US Alliant Techsystems Volcano. The latter system was selected with the chassis again being the Stormer flatbed.

The company has also delivered to Oman four Stormer vehicles in the command post configuration. These form part of the GBP140 million contract placed by Oman in 1993, which included the Challenger 2 MBTs and variants as well as UNIPOWER (6 × 6) tank transporters. According to United Nations sources an additional six Stormer vehicles were delivered to Oman in 1999.

For all the specialised roles previously undertaken by members of the Scorpion family, for example armoured personnel carrier (Spartan), ambulance (Samaritan), command post vehicle (Sultan) and recovery vehicle (Samson), the Stormer chassis is now the preferred choice as not only is it a later development but also has a significant increase in internal volume over that of the older versions.

Early in 1995, Indonesia placed a major order for Scorpion 90 vehicles and a complete family of Stormer variants. All these feature the latest upgraded suspension, new Perkins Engines Company Phaser diesel engine and a complete air conditioning system.

The Phaser in the Scorpion 90 is rated at 180 hp and coupled to the David Brown Engineering Limited TN15D transmission, while the Stormer diesel is rated at 250 hp and coupled to a David Brown Engineering Limited T300 transmission.

All the Indonesian Scorpion 90s and Stormer vehicles (with the exception of the recovery and flatbed versions) are fully amphibious and are propelled in the water by their tracks, or using a sprocket-mounted propulsion system.

In addition to the basic armoured personnel carrier version of the Stormer, Indonesia ordered a complete family of variants including command post vehicle, ambulance, recovery, logistic carrier and bridgelayer. The last two vehicles are flatbeds with the bridgelayer carrying a launcher and a Class 30 scissors-type bridge which when opened out is 15 m long.

The first Stormer command post vehicles were shipped to Indonesia in the summer of 1995, within six months of the production order being placed. Final deliveries were made in 1997.

Late in 1996, the company won a second contract from Indonesia for the supply of approximately 50 members of the Scorpion family of light tracked armoured vehicles.

The Indonesian Scorpion/Stormer order was in three phases of which the first two have now been ordered and delivered.

The Indonesian vehicles are powered by a Perkins Engines Company Phaser diesel, have upgraded torsion bar suspension system and air conditioning system.

In addition to the latest Scorpion 90 vehicles, the second contract also included Stormer command post vehicles, armoured personnel carriers, armoured recovery vehicles, ambulances, flatbed cargo carriers and an armoured vehicle-launched bridge carrying a Class 30 scissors bridge.

Production of the Stomer family has been completed and the vehicle is no longer being marketed by BAE Systems Land Systems.
