Modern Weapons: Compared and Contrasted

Do you ever wonder which is the best tank in service today? Which aircraft carrier, submarine or assault rifle is the best? Modern Weapons: Compared and Contrasted allows the reader to compare the key weapons technologies of modern armies side-by-side. The book includes air, sea and land weapons, both vehicles and small arms, in a spread-by-spread format for ease of use and quick comparison.

Each full-colour spread features a key category of weapon such as fighters or main battle tanks, for example, with an easy-to-follow diagram or chart allowing the reader to compare speeds, armour penetration, rate or range of fire, diving depth and so forth at a glance.

Packed with specially-created charts, graphs, and artworks and accompanied by an accessible explanation of the key characteristics of each weapon type, Modern Weapons is a fantastic book for any general reader or military enthusiast.
