At the very start of the 21st Century, the latest combat tanks are being designed and manufactured in the emerging countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. In this second volume of an important series on modern tanks, the history of these new participants is recounted within the context of the long lineage of the Russian tanks.
Numerous technical details are provided here for the first time in print, giving the reader a complete understanding of the technologies utilised in tank development.
Both volumes on the modern combat tank represent the only encyclopaedia to bring together the technical, historic, and operational aspects of the tank in the 21st century.
