Welcome to the Military land vehicles task force. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.

Scope[edit]

This task force covers all military land vehicles, with a special focus on armoured fighting vehicles including tanks, APCs, IFVs & armoured cars. It can be considered to be a subgroup of the military science and technology task force. This task force also covers Portal:Tank.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Land-vehicles-task-force=yes or AFV-task-force=yes (or Land-vehicles=yes or AFV=yes) to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Military land vehicles task force articles.
