Home Page


Currently we have recorded details of 647 Armoured Fighting Vehicles that were in use during the Second World War. The information we have is of interest to Wargamers and Historians alike.

The details we provide on each vehicle are as per the example below and have been gleaned from a great many reference books.

We also show the armour details thicknesses and angles of armour together with penetration figures for the A/T guns used, based on Krupp calculations from the late 1920's with some of our own modifications. These provide very accurate figures when compared to actual results obtained at various proving grounds during and after the war.
