    Anti-Aircraft Vehicles from Origin to Present Day

    Since the advent of military aircraft there has been a need for mobile ground-based defense, arriving in the form of the Anti-Aircraft Vehicle.





    There are a total of (69) Anti-Aircraft Vehicles from Origin to Present Day in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by initial year of service descending. Flag images indicative of country of origin. Those primary vehicles, whose chassis form the basis of a self-propelled anti-aircraft defense system, are also included in this listing (like the AMX-13, Chieftain and Challenger 1 tanks).


    Anti-Aircraft Guns (towed and otherwise) are kept in a separate listing to be found here. Man-portable anti-aircraft systems are showcased here.



    Please wait while all 69 records are loaded into this space.
