In this very beginning of the 21st century, it is within BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) and other emerging countries where the latest combat tanks are being created, and more precisely to the east of a line that passes through Istanbul. In this second volume, the history of these new participants is recounted within the context of the long lineage of the Russian tanks.

Numerous technical details are provided here for the first time in print, giving the reader a complete understanding of the technologies utilized in tank development.

Both volumes on the modern combat tank represent the only encyclopedia to bring together the technical, historic, and operational aspects of the tank in the 21st century.

Marc Chassillan is an international specialist of combat tanks. Trained as an engineer, Chassillan has participated in the development of the Leclerc tank and has written numerous articles in the journal RAIDS.
