Weapons of War offered a comprehensive review of a weapon, a vehicle, or a class of weaponry. Some major weapons systems, such as the Sherman, Panther and Tiger tanks, already had titles of their own, but the equally important T-34 tank was not represented. Filling in gaps of this sort became a high priority.
These articles are not lists of specifications. They are comprehensive reviews of the weapon system at hand, beginning with the original concept and its production history. Qualitative assessments and an overview of battlefield performance follow, concluding with the long-term significance or contributions of this weapon system.
