Modern Tanks and AFVs: 1991-Present Ar
47253MIL
According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, there are 60,000 tanks in active service worldwide. With 7,450 tanks, China has by far the most. This is followed by North Korea with 3,500 tanks. Tanks might not have been a huge component in modern warfare in the past two decades, but countries are still ordering new models. Also, nations previously without strong traditions of tank warfare are building up their forces. In recent years, countries in Asia, such as India, Pakistan, Singapore and Malaysia have all increased their armoured forces. Organised chronologically by type, Modern Tanks and AFVs offers a highly illustrated guide to the main armoured fighting vehicles used since 1990. From the Gulf Wars of 1991 and 2003 to Afghanistan, from Chechnya to the Crimea to Ukraine, from Yemen to the Syrian Civil War, the book features main battle tanks, armoured personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, self-propelled guns and other vehicles. Examples include the Chinese Type 99 main battle tank, the Korean K-2 Black Panther, the French VBCI infantry fighting vehicle, the Fennek reconnaissance vehicle and the Russian T-14 Armata.

The Sherman in the Chilean Army
TPSCA01MIL
By the mid-1970s, Chile and Israel were involved in arms dealing together. The two nations started discussing the Israeli-modified M-51 Sherman. It was mechanically and automotively reliable. Second, it had a gun already evaluated in the French AMX-30 MBT which Chile would eventually acquire in the late 1970s. The M-51s were well-received and successful. They offered more interior room than the T-54/55 series, the lighter M41, M24 and the AMX-30, particularly appreciated in the colder regions in the south where thicker clothing could be worn. Israel developed a 60 mm Hyper-Velocity Medium Support weapon system. It was decided to use it in the M-50, to be ordered by Chile, and M24 Chaffees already in Chilean service.

Tankograd 5078 Biber: The bruckenlegepan
00606MIL
BIBER The Brückenlegepanzer 1 Armoured Vehicle Launched Bridge in Modern German Army Service The crossing of trenches, obstacles and small water channels always creates problems for combat forces, which eventually led to the development and fielding of special bridge-layer systems. The current Armoured Vehicle Launched Bridge (AVLB) of the Bundeswehr is the Brückenlegepanzer 1 Biber (Beaver). After the end of trials, MaK in Kiel received a contract in December 1971 for the delivery of 105 Biber bridge-layers with bridges. By April 1975, all vehicles and bridges had been handed over. This publiction shows the history and technology of the Biber in great detail using many hitherto unpublished exercise photographs and walkarounds as well as technical scale drawings.

Tankcraft (12) Tank Destroyer Achilles
41905MIL
In this heavily illustrated volume in the TankCraft series Dennis Oliver focuses on the Achilles - the British variant of the American M10 - which was one of the most important Allied tank destroyers of the Second World War. It played a key role in the armoured battles fought on the Western Front, in particular in France, the Low Countries, Germany and Italy. Built on an adapted Sherman chassis, with sloped armour, an open-topped turret and powerful 17-pounder gun, it was designed to counter the threat posed by the formidable panzers deployed by the German army towards the end of the conflict, in particular the Panther and Tiger tanks.

Tankcraft (16) T54/55 Soviet Cold Wa
41387MIL
During the Cold War, the T-54/55 series of tanks represented the most serious threat to Nato land forces in Europe. Available in huge quantities, it formed the core of the Warsaw Pact armoured warfare doctrine, which envisaged massed tank attacks against the weakest point in Nato’s front-line defences. Yet the T-54/55 could be stopped by smaller numbers of tanks which had the benefit of better technology and training, as was demonstrated during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 when Israeli tanks dealt out appalling punishment to T-55s of the Syrian army. Despite these limitations, the T-54/55 was one of the most successful tanks ever produced.

Tankcraft (13) Tiger I and Tiger I
41820MIL
Tiger tanks were among the most-feared fighting vehicles of the Second World War and they gained almost legendary status, yet they never fulfilled their potential because they were not produced in sufficient numbers and the tide the war had turned against the German army by the time they were introduced. Often they were deployed in difficult circumstances and in defensive battles, struggling against the odds. Nowhere was this more true than in western Europe during the Allied advance across France and into Germany, and it is the Tigers of this phase of the war that Dennis Oliver portrays in his third volume on the Tiger in the TankCraft series.
