Editorial Review

Talk about heavy metal--if you're a Jane's junkie, this particular periodical will feed your jones. The publishers are eager to spread the news about the latest in military equipment and the many ways one might use that equipment. And, being the U.S. Army's Armor Branch, the publishers know whereof they speak. The editorial style is too tasteful to say it outright, but the subtext is always rolling thunder and ker-pow. And no matter how much you delve into the minutia of relative alloys and their gages, the latest in electronic navigational toys, and where and how all this armor might be used, isn't the bottom line having more power? Subscribers also have opportunities to order well-executed and imaginative prints of work by Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Superb Professional Journal
As a foreign military officer I have had an excellent (possibly more objective) opportunity to review all the journals aimed at the Mounted professional. By far the best is Armor. Although I do not agree with all its content, this is not the point - it stimulates professional debate and discussion like no other. However this is no exercise in abstract theory - this warfighting publication has a staunch operational focus, with articles coming from dedicated professionals with a degree of experiences that I can only dream of. It is also refreshingly free of parochial, so-called patriotic rubbish that infects alot of US warfighting discussion. Professionals dont have time for platitudes about "the land of liberty", we need operational experiences and lessons learned.....and we need them now - Armor delivers.

4-0 out of 5 stars Professional Mag for the Mounted Warrior
Armor magazine has improved in its quality quite a bit over the last decade. Prior to the Iraq War the preponderance of articles seemed to be searching for some relavence in a post-Cold War world where the Army was fixated on lighter more rapidly deployable forces. There is a good mix of "how to" articles by young officers and serageants in the field, historical analyses of mounted warfare, future trends in mounted warfare, and future technologies. The magazine can also be commended for publishing controversial articles challenging the conventioanl trends in Army developments, notably articles by Mike Sparks offering alternatives to the Army's Stryker Brigade program and one of my favorites, and article on using semi-rigid inflatable dirigibles for transporting heavy mounted forces across the globe. As an Infantry officer, I have learned a lot from this magazine devoted to mounted warfare and have used many suggestions and tools published in this magazine. ... Read more
