Welcome to Tank and AFV News!
The name of the site is pretty self explanatory, we are here to provide news about tanks and AFVs. And by “we”, I mean the “royal we“, which pretty much means just me. The goal of the site is to be a daily aggregator of news about tanks while also providing occasional original content. We also will be providing updates on upcoming books and the occasional book review (Hey publishers, how about some review copies?) Our goal right now is to post 3 to 4 updates a day, although we may need an occasional day off. As the site continues to grow and develop, we hope to increase the output of content and build a pool of contributors.
About the Author:
After having spent several years reading extensively on the history of tanks and AFVs, I decided to start putting down my thoughts into a blog – tankandafv.blogspot.com. This blog was aimed at the rather small segment of the population interested in such matters. After a couple years of sporadic updating of that blog, I decided to focus on a more ambitious project, Tank and AFV News.
My interest in tanks and AFVs is purely a hobby. I have never been in the military or served as part of an armored vehicle crew, nor does my day job have anything to do with tanks or the military/defense complex. I have some interest in models, although my collection is limited primarily to 1/72 scale plastic and diecast prebuilt models. I sometimes post book reviews on Amazon under the name “tanksonthebrain.” I may also be spotted in various tank related forums as “Walter_Sobchak.”
