Big Bang Vol. 8: Soviet Anti-Tank Guided Weapons

Big Bang Vol. 8: Soviet Anti-Tank Guided Weapons


This volume of the series covers the entire spectrum of guided anti-tank weapons that have been used by the Societ and Russian militaries since the late 1950's. Over a span of almost 50 years, they produced 16 launch platforms and more than 35 different missiles in this long line of very effective weapons. The book begins with the AT-1 Snapper, first introduced not long after the Korean War, and finishes with the AT-16 Vikhr, including mention of the AT-16 Germes variant, a radar guided anti-tank platform that can fire on a dozen different ground targets simultaneously, with a greater than 95% chance of hitting each of them. And yes, we have carefully sorted through NATO, US Army and Rusian documents and books regarding these weapons in order to reduce the vast amount of confusion that resulted from Cold War misidentification of many systems.

This volume is 34 pages long. Also included is an 8 page demo for The Qalashar Device, second in a line of non-FX military-based adventures by Sword's Edge Publishing.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
