Modern Military Vehicles is a mini encyclopedia of the most important and influential military vehicles that are currently used around the world.

This pocket compendium app contains over 300 vehicles and lets you explore at a glance:

- the evolution of the main battle tank, from third generation (Leclerc, C1 Ariete, Challenger 2, M1 Abrams and T-80) to third generation advanced (Arjun, Karrar and VT4) and present day fourth generation vehicles (Altay, K2 Black Panther and Type 10),

- the increased use of common platforms (the Russian Armata Universal Combat Platform, the American Stryker platform, the Italian Centauro/Freccia/SuperAV chassis and the South Korean K806/K808 design) or major modules (as is the case of the AS-90, K9 Thunder and AHS Krab or the OF-40, TAM and Palmaria) for multiple vehicles,

- the continued refinement of older designs in order to improve firepower, protection and mobility (Leopard 2A4/A5/A6, Merkava II/III/IV, T-90 and M109A6 Paladin),

- the introduction of advanced heavily armed remote weapon stations, unmanned turrets (T-14/15 Armata, M1128 MGS) and unmanned combat vehicles (Uran-9),

- the diminishing presence of light tanks (like the American Stingray, the Swedish Ikv 91 or the Chinese ZTD-05) on the battlefield,

- the large variety in concepts for infantry fighting vehicles: traditional tracked designs (Ajax, BMD-4, CV90, Dardo, K21, Lynx, Puma, Tulpar, Type 89 or Ulan/Pizarro), multipurpose wheeled vehicles (Boxer, Lazar 2, Fuchs 1/2, Pandur I/II, Patria AMV, Piranha III, VBCI), heavy armoured personnel carriers (including the Achzarit, Namer and BMO-T), mine resistant ambush protected vehicles (the American Cougar or Russian Typhoon series) and infantry support vehicles (BMPT Terminator and Nagmachon),

- the different approaches to tank destroyers: tracked (2S25 Sprut-SD) or wheeled (Rooikat), armed with guns (Type 16 MCV) or anti-tank guided missiles (AFT-10),

- the development of more accurate and mobile self-propelled artillery systems, from the massive tracked 2S19 Msta-S, 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV and PzH 2000 to the more mobile 2S23 Nona-SVK, ATMOS 2000 and G6 Rhino wheeled vehicles and the less expensive Archer, CAESAR, K239 Chunmoo and RM-70 Vampir truck-based howitzers and multiple rocket launchers,

- the advancements in anti-aircraft systems, including self-propelled guns (Lvkv 90, PZA Loara, Type 87), surface-to-air missile platforms (9K37 Buk, S-400 Triumf) and combinations of both (Pantsir-S1, PGZ-09),

- the use of highly specialized engineer vehicles (BAT-2, Trojan AVRE, UR-77 Meteorit, M1150 ABV), bridgelayers (Titan AVLB) and armoured recovery vehicles (BREM-1, CRARRV, Type 90 ARV),

- the large array of purpose-built military light vehicles, from special forces vehicles (like the Desert Patrol Vehicle or the RSOV), tank transporters (M1070 HET or Scammell Commander), trucks (FMTV, KamAZ-4310, MTVR), utility vehicles (GAZ Tigr, Iveco LMV, URO VAMTAC) and special carriers (DT-30P Vityaz).

Each vehicle entry contains at least one image, a short text that summarises the vehicle's development and service history and a detailed specifications table offering place of origin and production information, crew, weight and dimensions data, armour and armament details, powerplant and performance figures.

Awesome But One Suggestion

I love this app, the interface is great. Looks great, is just overall clean and tons of information and pictures. However I wish that in the search bar you could look up the country and get all of the country’s tanks. This would be awesome for nations not in its own group. Thanks!
