Every major battle tank and combat vehicle used in today's armored forces -- including new vehicles just entering service -- is identified in this guide by photographs, illustrations that show key recognition points, accurate technical specifications and a brief description written by Christopher F. Foss, the foremost expert on military vehicles. Unrivaled as a military vehicle reference for the general public, it is both an effective recognition manual and an excellent learning tool.
