Abstract

This review paper focuses on the technological developments taking place in the battle tanks used in defence technology. Battle tank is the primary offensive weapon. A tank must have high firepower to destroy enemy target with self-protection and mobility. To achieve these performances the design of a battle tank plays an important role. Various challenges need to be addressed during the development of battle tanks include protection, armament and firepower design, vibration control, providing necessary crew comfort, ammunition safety, gun barrel, suspension, and track design. Design constraints puts limitations for the realization in their development. These constraints are weight capacity, performance, and transportability. The objective is to review the design process parameters and how these are realized during a battle tank manufacturing.
