By Alexander Lüdeke
Alexander Lüdeke looks at the most important developments that have taken place since 1970.
A great upheaval in tank construction took place in the 1970s, as new combat techniques, helicopters, weaponry and new types of ammunition reduced the value of a conventional combat battalion. Nevertheless, complete new developments are rare.
Each vehicle is presented with a short description, images and a reference table of key technical data, supplemented by colour drawings with camouflage and identification numbers.
An interesting book about the tank development.
A nicely sized reference to relatively recent armored vehicles, with a history of each vehicles' development, deployment and characteristics.
