Have you ever wanted to command a battle tank? This new edition of 'Military Vehicles' shows you how the world's toughest machines are designed, built, and operated. Learn about the fearsome Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank (MBT) and the Bradley M2 Armored Fighting Vehicle (AFV). See why the T-90 MBT is designed to explode and the Stridsvagn 103 has no gun turret. Lift the hatch and take a closer look at the Abrams M1A2 MBT. From light tanks and mobility trucks, to rocket launchers and bridges on wheels, the whole troop is covered. Put on your flak jacket and prepare to be amazed. The revised and updated 'Designed for Success' series shows how designers create the very best cars, planes, motorcycles, and other exciting vehicles. It explains the many design challenges that designers and engineers must overcome and the factors they must take into account, such as materials, cost, and new technology.
