Save on World War2 & Jet Aircraft DVDs at Zeno's Flight Shop
The M48 was the first American battle tank designed & built entirely after the end of World War 2. As such it incorporated lessons learned in Europe and in Korea where United Nations forces encountered Soviet Armor for the first time. This very thorough documentary covers all elements of development from initial needs assessment, design, testing systems & prototypes through introduction & training. Highlights include an inside view of the Detroit Ordnance R&D Center where 10 of thousands of parts were developed, failure & performance tested including engines, armaments, metallurgy, cold weather performance, lubricants, field testing & much more.
