WW2 Infantry Fighting Vehicles

Beyond the combat tank, the Infantry Fighting Vehicle was another crucial armored development of World War 2.

There are a total of 17 WW2 Infantry Fighting Vehicles in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order. Flag images indicative of country of origin. This listing also includes "Infantry Tanks" which were related to a British/French concept appearing prior to World War 2. While they did not carry infantry into battle as a true IFV would, they were designed to provide close support to them.
