The MILITÄR FAHRZEUG series of books from Tankograd Publishing are a quarterly publication. The books usually cover the content of the other books released by Tankograd Publishing but is obviously covered in shorter segments and less detail while also covering other areas of interest in a single publication. So let’s see what we have inside.


This offering of MILITÄR FAHRZEUG offers 56 A4 Pages of a good quality semi gloss paper hat shows off photographs to a high standard. The pages are protected by a card cover that seems to do a good job of protection from my experience. Unlike most releases from Tankograd Publishing this series of books are printed with German text only, but even if you cannot understand the text the pictures are well worth the purchase cost of the publication. The contents break down as below:

Weapon systems of the Bundeswehr - Leopard 2A5 Urbane Operations
US Army - Laser-Stryker
Vehicle History of the Wehrmacht - Wehrmacht FLAK truck
US Army - M1 Abrams TROPHY
British Army - Beetles and Jeeps
Weapon systems of the Bundeswehr - Reactivation MINING STORAGE SYSTEM 85
National Peoples Army - Armored MINI SLIDER of the NVA
Museums, events and collector Scene - MM PARK
German Armaments Products – Army - Eurosatory 2018 - Made in Germany
Leopard News - EMBT - Euro Main Battle Tank
Museums, events and collector Scene - Mississippi Armed Forces Museum
NATO manoeuvres - Strong Europe Tank Challenge 2018
News from the industry - Armored personnel carrier LYNX

So as you can see quite a lot to cover in a 56 page title, but Tankograd Publishing has got this down to a fine art and make the space work. The book covers a wide gambit of history covering military forces from around the world and so should be of interest to most of us in more than one area. The photographs are a mix of colour and black & white, but the images are all of a very high quality.


If your budget is tight where reference books are concerned the MILITÄR FAHRZEUG (Military Vehicle) series of books are a great way of building up a reference library or visual reference if you don’t speak German. Aspects of the specific book releases are covered in this release and so it enables you to cover a broad spectrum of interests quickly. I am a fan of the Vehicle History of the Wehrmacht section as they cover the vehicles chosen very well visually in the title. Well worth the cost of €9.90 an issue.

It is so cool seeing a Leo 2 in urban warfare camo! Enough reason for me to want a copy. Finally I can dust off a Leo and do something postwar!
