Main Battle and Light Tanks
The role of the armoured fighting vehicle (AVF) on the battlefield is probably the subject of more discussion now than at any time in recent history. From the formidable main battle tank to the light armoured personnel carrier, the variety and role of these versatile vehicles is extensive. This work details the equipment to be found in current use throughout the world. The book analyzes each tank systematically, looking at its level of protection, firepower and mobility. The author assesses the fighting qualities of each vehicle, and comments on their advantages and disadvantages. The book demonstrates that a tank's performance and its design are linked to doctrine. An overview of the factors which govern a tank's design is included, for example: why are Russian tanks smaller, lighter and with a reduced battlefield signature; and what are the tactical advantages and disadvantages of a small battlefield signature. The book reflects on recent design trends and the impact of new technologies.
