Description by OLDIES.com:
From the battlefields of Flanders onwards, the ultimate ground weapon was the tank. Developed to break the deadlock of trench warfare, nothing that preceded it could stand against it. And so, the search for an anti-tank weapon had begun. Also included are tanks from World War II through Kosovo.
Description by Ryko Distribution:
From the battlefields of Flanders onwards, the ultimate ground weapon was the tank. Developed to break the deadlock of trench warfare, nothing that preceded it could stand against it. And so, the search for an anti-tank weapon had begun.
At the beginning of World War II the standard German anti-tank weapon was the little 37mm PaK 35 and 36 which could penetrate only 1" of sloped armor at 500 yards. By the end of the war the supreme tank destroyer was the Jager-tiger with an ability to penetrate 10" at 1000 yards.
By the time of Vietnam, the MacDonell Douglas AH-64 Apache came into service and was still a vital element in the anti-tank mission during the Gulf War. The British contributed with the vertical take-off Harrier which has proved itself an effective killer using "smart" bombs in conflicts as recently as Kosovo.
