Osprey New Vanguard 80 : Chieftain Main Battle Tank 1965-2003

The concept of the Main Battle Tank (MBT) emerged with development of the Centurion Universal tank at the end of World War II. The Chieftain incorporated significant innovations including a reclining driver position and two-piece ammunition for greater survivability. The tank entered service in 1967 and was the heaviest armed and armoured MBT within the NATO alliance. The Chieftain saw combat during the Iran-Iraq War, with the Kuwaitis during the 1990 Iraqi invasion and with the British Army during the Gulf War of 1990-91 as special-purpose variants. This book explores the design, development and operation of one of the most influential vehicles used in modern warfare. Text by Simon Dunstan with illustrations by Peter Sarson.
