Welcome to the American Fighting Vehicle Database

This site intends to present information on the development history and physical characteristics of armored vehicles produced by the United States. A disclaimer must be added that while it is always tempting to become fixated with figures such as armor thickness and gun caliber, it must be remembered that the most important part of any armored vehicle is its crew.
