This is the first volume in an important new work dedicated to contemporary combat tanks. Volume one introduces tanks from four countries: France, USA, Japan, and Germany. Among them the reader will find the famous US Abrams, the well known French Leclerc and its German equivalent the Leopard.

Marc Chassillan provides a detailed analysis of each tank, including plans, supporting profiles, and action shots. In addition, there are technical chapters on the machinery, exterior armour, the sight and weaponry.

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. This is truly the bible for those who are passionate about modern tanks.
