About this title


This most up to date and profusely illustrated book deals with the development of battle tanks and other armored fighting vehicles since the Second World War and the current state of their design. Mr. Ogorkiewicz is an internationally recognized authority on armored fighting vehicles and has lectured on the subject not only in Britain but also in the United States, Sweden and Israel. This, his latest book, is also the first of its kind to be published in English or indeed any other language and contains much hitherto unpublished material. It represents the first detailed account of the progressive evolution of armored fighting vehicles and deals in depth with the many different aspects of this most important subject, including the latest types of gun and guided missile armament, new types of engines and steering systems, possible use of plastic armor and so on. Moreover, not only does this work cover the military and engineering features of armored fighting vehicles but it presents also an operational research evaluation of tank designs and a critical appraisal of the management of tank projects.
