French Text

This book regroups, for the first time, all tracked IFVs from the world over and their many modernizations and modifications along with a timetable showing the dates that they were put into service. Enriched with more than 350 photos, methodic and bilingual, it reveals the history of each vehicle along with precise dates presenting the capacities and technical characteristics for each and every model. Dimensions are indicated in a practical and visual manner. This handbook allows the precise identification of a tracked vehicle from an image, even partial. A series of four tests will allow you to evaluate your current level and improve your knowledge on the matter. Regrouping all these qualities, this manual is an indispensable tool for the armed forces and everyone that has a passion for armored vehicles and military history.

This publication is the second volume in a series of books on military material, the first volume of which is entitled Main Battle Tanks.
