Overview

Armored Fighting Vehicles is a compendium of the most important and influential military vehicles that have been in service since World War I. Starting with the crude and unreliable tanks of World War I, the book goes on to examine the military vehicles of World War II, tanks such as the Panther, Tiger, Sherman, and T-34—vehicles that transformed the art of land warfare. Armored Fighting Vehicles also includes up-to-date fighting machines, such as the Abrams and Challenger tanks, and Warrior infantry fighting vehicle.

Each vehicle featured is illustrated by a full-color side-profile artwork, and accompanied by a detailed specifications table giving country of origin, crew, weight, dimensions, armor, armament, powerplant, and performance, all measurements in imperial and metric. In addition, there is accompanying text for each vehicle that summarizes the vehicle’s development and service history.
