Overview
-

With over 140 images, this book covers the various designs of armored fighting vehicles and protected patrol vehicles employed in the war in Afghanistan. Although the conflict was primarily an infantryman’s war, producing specialized protected vehicles became an urgent priority due to the threat from IEDs and legacy mines. While many older vehicles were employed with suitable modifications, the insurgency saw the introduction of many new designs such as the Jackal, Mastiff and Foxhound. The book concentrates on UK and US types, but also features a selection of designs by other participating nations, including France and Canada. Furthermore, the specialized logistics vehicles used to supply the far-flung operating bases in the Sangin valley will be investigated.
