COLD WAR TANKS
Cold War Tanks – 1947-1990, from all nations. Definition: The Main Battle Tank was a late ww2 invention, when it was realized the fusion between a medium and a heavy tank should be achieved for the better results. This was the concept of a “universal tank”. The last cruiser tank, the centurion, was arguably the first example of this new breed. It was larger and heavier than the Comet, yet still lighter than contemporary heavy tanks, which disappeared, as well as light tanks. New lineage appeared, not only from the USSR and US, but also Europe and in the late 1980s many other countries followed. Outside China, Japan, South and North Korea also devised their own MBTs, whereas India, Israel, Iran, or Pakistan also developed their own models.

Since 2014 David Bocquelet released a handful of tanks posters, mostly on ww2-related topics. In 2018 others will follow. These posters help us to host the website and create new posters (one poster on average can take 6 hours or more, not including the work performed on the illustrations themselves! That’s teamwork as entries in a poster are a matter of team debates and balancing decision to include or not some models/variants, etc.
