From the Vault: Modern Mechanix.com AFV Articles

Modern Mechanix.com is a great website that hosts hundreds of old magazine articles and ads about technology.  We combed through the site to find as many posts as we could relating to tanks or armored vehicles.  Below is a list of what we found.  Many of these articles are rather amusing since the technology presented is either fantastical or just plain impractical. Not much of use for the serious researcher, but it should provide some entertainment for tank and AFV fans.
