Updated on August 31st, 2003. Next update in 2004

One more website about the tanks of World War II ? No, THE website about the tanks of World War II. Many others exist, some are excellent but have a look at this one, you won't be disappointed

Mail and viruses
The viruses that are rife on the net these days have provoked some troubles in our inflow of mails. We hope that the problem will be solved soon and we apologize for the inconvenience.
We would like to present the authors of viruses and other spammers the expression of our most sincere contempt. If you are too impotent to build, just destroy, it is easier.

What's new ? Guns are new
How many sites are there about tanks ? one hundred, one thousand, more ?
How many about artillery ? None. Sorry, now one.
How does it works ? Just have a look. If you feel comfortable on this site, you'll be comfortable on that one.
You are saying that a website about guns is an update of a tank website ? Yes, what was the main weapon of a tank. Those too are covered by the new website.
Nothing about tanks then ? Oh yes, something: fun. Try the quiz at your level

What's next ?
Planned is a renewal of all our pages about tanks to add the links to their armament. That's the point of the site about artillery. With a simple click you can add to the history and data of the tank the history and data of its guns or machine guns. Also planned, is a new section about armored cars and half-tracks (I know, that's the fourth time I promise it, and the third time that I don't stick to my word, but I am getting closer each time).
