Did the BAOR still tote SLRs when the first Warrior APCs and Mk. I Challengers came into use?

Warrior came into service around 1988/9, SA80 a bit before. So possibly some cross over with SLR, particularly with TAVR units. Challenger 1, was early/mid 1980's, so should be fine with troops with SLR. Chieftain tank and FV430 APC would probably look better (IMO)
