Description

A colorful guide to the most significant Chinese AFVs deployed in the modern era.

With 7,450 vehicles, China today has by far the largest number of armored fighting vehicles of any army in the world. Chinese Tanks & AFVs explores the main battle tanks, armored fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled guns, and missile-launching platforms in service since 1945, with an emphasis on the latest technology. Organized historically by type, the entries include the Type 98 and 90 tanks, the Type 80/85/88 held in reserve, and the Type 99 used by elite battalions--as well as the YW-306 self-propelled rocket launcher and the PLA PL0 100mm assault gun. Illustrated with expert profile artworks for each entry and complete with technical specifications, this detailed reference guide is a must for modelers and enthusiasts with an interest in modern military technology.
