In-Box Review
Jane's Tanks and Combat Vehicles Recognition Guide

by: Chuck Bush

This book contains technical data for over 200 modern tanks and combat vehicles. There are over 1000 photographs, most in color.

The Table of Contents list vehicles by types: Tanks, Tracked APCS/Weapons Carriers, 4X4 Vehicles, 6X6 Vehicles, 8X8 Vehicles, and Self-Propelled Guns. There is a Glossary at the back of the book.





Each entry has the following information:

Key Recognition Features Shape of hull, Number of road wheels, Type of weapons mounted, ect.

Specifications Everything from number of crew to Engine and NBC system.

Development A couple of paragraphs.

Variants

Status Production status and a list of countries using the vehicle.

Manufacturers



From 1 to 4 photos, and in some cases a line drawing round out the entry.

This is a nice general guide. I like being able to find where a vehicle serves. The photos are high quality, many showing the vehicle in the field.
