In this article we will show the most promising directions of development of armored vehicles, errors of designers and their right decisions. The criteria for comparison will be innovative technology, technical excellence of a sample machine creation, mass production, technology and, of course, the experience of combat use.
10th place - Marder. Bundeswehr infantry fighting vehicle. Its combat weight is 33 tons. It was created as a response to the Soviet BMP-1. The range of weapons includes automatic gun Rheinmetall-202 (20mm) and ATGM Milan. It has great security and German quality. The general picture is slightly spoiled by the lack of Marder’s combat experience.
