Red Steel: Soviet Tanks and Combat Vehicles of the Cold War

This book is now out of print. It has been superseded by Tanks and Combat Vehicles of the Warsaw Pact.

Red Steel coverThe Cold War never heated up, but if it had, the Soviet Union was ready. This reference work details 73 major Soviet war machines, from the 2P26 “Baby Carriage” – a deceptively light, Jeep-like vehicle mounting four anti-tank missiles – to the T-80U main battle tank with its advanced armour and electronic countermeasures.

Sixty-one photographs and drawings illustrate the work, and access to a web gallery with even more illustrations is included in the purchase.
