The Big Picture - Role of Armor
You disliked this video. Thanks for the feedback!
THE BIG PICTURE viewers will get an opportunity in this picture to see how armor has grown from a small group of specialists to the all-important role in in today's army.
Signal Corps films present an authentic report of the first tactical employment of the iron combatants. Now accepted as an essential part of the fighting team on the ground, tanks were once considered impractical and ineffective.
This episode records the slow evolution of today's rugged, reliable, hard-hitting, mobile forces. Authentic combat footage shows the successful employment of armored vehicles in World War II and in Korea.
An indication of what lies ahead is also given with a view of the most modern armored vehicles being tested at Army proving grounds.
A substantial following of World War II and Korean veterans, as well as those readers of Armor Magazine and members of the U.S. Armor Association who review the past triumphs of armor with considerable interest, will find in this documentary film a complete story that has long been waiting to be told.
