90 years of the Tank!
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Re: 90 years of the Tank!

Today, Western armies are debating the future of the Main Battle Tank, an expensive piece of kit and, as losses in Israel and Iraq show, vulnerable to anti-tank weapons.

Pre-2003, there was a move to gradually reduce the numbers of big tanks and switch to lighter, air-portable armoured vehicles that match the modern Western doctrine of "expeditionary warfare".

But operations in the Balkans, Iraq, and Afghanistan have shown that tanks remain a powerful deterrent and a much-needed weapon system on the modern battlefield.


Hmmm....not altogether unlike similar debates in the late 1940's and 1973-74. Rolling Eyes
