Overview

The Encyclopedia of Modern Armor: Anti Tank Weapons

The documentary Encyclopedia of Modern Armor: Anti-Tank Weapons caters to military enthusiasts everywhere with a long, penetrating look at the successful development of a weapon to obliterate ground tanks. Originally conceived to cut viciously through the inevitable stalemate breached by trench combat, the Sherman tank first met its match with the Nazis' 37mm Pak 35 and 36, but that weapon suffered from severe limitations of distance and impact. Later, the Axis rolled out the Jager-tiger - which could slice through 10 inches of steel at a 1,000 yard distance - and introduced the land-mine, which crippled and killed thousands of tank drivers by catching the men off guard. Successive wars saw the rise of the Russian-built MIG-23 anti-tank fighter aircraft and MIL-24 anti-tank helicopter, as well as the Vietnam and Gulf War-era use of the McDonnell-Douglas AH-64 Apache anti-tank attack helicopter. The Encyclopedia of Modern Armor: Anti-Tank Weapons tells this decades-long story, via detailed narration and the extensive use of footage shot in combat and outside of combat.
