Yearbook Armored Vehicles of the Modern German Army 2018

In NEWS by RalphZwilling / Oktober 26, 2017 / 0 Comments

After nearly one year of preparation with numerous photo shoots and many hours of researching, the first Tankograd-YEARBOOK will hit the shelves of the book shops soon.

The Tankograd-YEARBOOK provides an overview over the in-service armored vehicles of the Modern German Army and updates Tankograd‘s vehicle monographs published over the past years by describing and listing all main types, their variants, showing technical data of the basic variant and all quantities in service.

This YEARBOOK was only possible due to the great support and trust provided by the German Army Command and many Bundeswehr units.

We feel very honored that the Commander Operations and Deputy Chief of Staff of the German Army, Lieutenant General Carsten Jacobson, provided the foreword for this publication.
