Since 2014 David Bocquelet released a handful of tanks posters, mostly on ww2-related topics. In 2021 others will follow. These posters help us to host the website and create new posters (one poster on average can take 6 hours or more, not including the work performed on the illustrations themselves! That’s teamwork as entries in a poster are a matter of team debates and balancing decision to include or not some models/variants, etc. Also on ArtPal

Sd.Kfz 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 were half-tracks designed just before the war as prime movers, to carry supplies, ammunition, personal, and tow artillery. Many were also converted during the war as armored versions carrying AA FLAK guns (Flakvierling, 37 mm, or the legendary 88 mm Rheinmetall als used as tank hunters), or were converted as nebelwerfer (rocket launching armored vehicles). They were built by Hanomag, Steyr, Mercedes-Benz, Bussing and many other manufacturers until 1945, over 20,000 half-tracks.

I would love a Pz-35(t) coffee mug, since we are asking for things! 🙂
and I would buy a “ID” poster of the pre-war Czech stuff for sure!

we’ll take a look at the idea, perhaps a limited run for Cambrai Day this year

Make individual images available on T-shirts.

Things have become so distributed between the equipment to put any image on clothing and the availability to produce and deliver it that it’s possible to do one-off T-shirts for not much more than making a lot (it might even become cheaper when unsold merch comes in but I’m too lazy to do the math, all I know is unsold inventory is a PITA.)

I’d buy one with an M43 Ambulance painted in Ohio National Guard (Toledo/Findlay) markings circa 1970 any day, there’s a funny story to go with it.

Hello Chuck, if you check Red Bubble you’ll see a large array T-shirts available with all the posters already produced. But making one-off models could take quite long and margins are quite low… But if one day ‘im venturing into this one, you’ll be the first to know

I’d love to see an individual poster of one of the heavily modified easy eight shermans, like thunderbolt 7 or perhaps cobra king. They are handsome to the point of being princely.

Duly noted, that’s already on the tubes. Indeed both deserve a poster.
However, and it’s a general note, does anyone have an idea of who were the british/Commonwealth top tank ace ?
By default i’m preparing a poster on Corporal Alfie Nicholls of the 9th Lancers and another on Sydney Valpy Radley-Walters
Any ideas are welcome !
Cheers; 😉

Здраствуйте. У вас прекрасный проект. Хочу помочь вам сделать его чуть лучше – на одном из ваших плакатов, Блитцкриг 1940, есть ошибка – в числе прочих там показан немецкий бронетранспортёр Sd. Kfz. 250..
Ошибка в том, что их начали серийно выпускать полько в июне 1941года.
Всего наилучшего ✌

As you are a Soviet Connoisseur i do believe that you will appreciate the cold war soviet armored vehicles arsenal which is just out.
Cheers !

Done ! Check the poster page…
I know it was quite long in the making with just a few models missing, like the giant SPG Condensator and other Soviet self-propelled guns, or the Shilka SPAAG, BMD-2 and BTR-D. But i’m glad it’s at last available. Next: Global British, Cold war British, Cold War US, modern Russian, Modern Chinese, global Swedish and Bundeswehr are on the tubes.

Hi, Could you tell which Windows graphical software the creator of these poster used? Adobe Photoshop? Gimp? other?

Hello Alex
Both photoshop CS (just because 5.0 did not managed .png files and layers groups) and Gimp were used.

Hi guys, just spotted a slight error on the new Cold War tanks poster. The captions on the Type 61 and Type 74 appear to be the wrong way round i.e, the Type 61 has the Type 74 caption under it and visa-versa.

Message relayed to the illustrator. Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

Too much work for a very reduced “market” (but perhaps the cartels ? haha) sorry
Although im doing that by passion; sometimes a single illustration can require 7-8 hours of work, so any poster needs to be sold at least twenty time to start being profitable by any margin. Plus im “working” for people that scan prints to be reprinted in China and sold in alibaba and amazon at ridiculous low prices on crap paper. That’s also a brake on this activity. BTW on improvized AFVs, we also have in the tubes since at least four years a project on ISIS Iraqi and Syrian improvized AFVs. Perhaps i should start a patreon on this one, like for North Korea and Iran…

Hello Staedtler
Duly Noted !
Since i’m not long away for a global poster on Brazilian AFVs, would you be interested by this one too ?
David B

Hello Brandon,
After Creighton Abrams own Thunderbolt yes, the Bastogne’s Cobra King is next.

The Cobra King is out ! In fact it’s our special 75th anniversary of the battleof the bulge, on top of the poster’s page.
Cheers “Colonial”, David

How about a poster featuring some WW2 AFVs match-ups and rivalries? For each category (heavy, medium, and light tanks, SPGs, tank destroyers, etc) put the axis tanks facing the allied tanks in a poster. Here are some examples: King Tiger vs. IS-2, Tiger I vs. M26 Pershing, Panther vs. T-34/85, Panzer IV vs. T-34/76, Type 3 Chi-Nu vs. M4 Sherman, and so on. Perhaps, you can organize them by front too (Eastern Front, Western Front, North African Front, Pacific Front, etc)

The idea was submitted in internal, some time ago
I found a fan pic once made with tank encyclopedia’s illus with some reversed, opposing soviet and german ww2 hardware. That was the idea.
Can’t find the link anymore but it should be visible in google and pinterest wih the right keywords.
Why not if accompanied with explanations like in an infographic. However tank to tank comparisons are most often pointless. There are way too many parameters to consider and it’s often a waste of time to find real matches.

Could you please create a poster on armoured vehicules used by the “Brigade Piron” (Belgian-Luxemburger Brigade)

I had a hard time finding a reliable list of vehicles, do you have one ? BTW at least you can be sure i will do at least an individual poster of the T17 Staghound of the Brigade. Amazing story by the way.

Yes please! I second this whole-heartedly, the BT-42 is an incredibly interesting piece of armor from WW2/ Continuation War. I would pay good money for this!

Hey! I love the posters and I am wondering if you would ever consider making a poster containing all Canadian WW2 tanks or all Canadian tanks throughout history?

Hello Vaughn
Mind you i’m precisely working on a new poster serie people on Redbubble asked me for XMas. I can add the KV2, no problem at all.
I will update this comment when done
Cheers !

*nb: The poster page needs to be updated, better to go directly on red bubble.

Can you add french cold war armour? I mean srsly french tanks are underrated, my father fought in the gulf war with the amx 30 B2 he always complained about how it lacked protection but he was also thankful for the high speed and small size which made him a harder target. And he was like “Holy sweet jesus f*** when they switched to the leclerc. Because it went from like a literal late world war 1biplane to an early cold war jet. Also amx 30 b 2 gulf war configuration would be awesome! (Please add it before his birthday which is (April 22nd.) I would love to buy him that.

Please do various chronological versions of the Tiger I, Panther and King Tiger.
As well as ALL the other German vehicles.

May I suggest that a poster of CPLAGF armor should be created? Including the ZBD-97/04/A and Type 07 SPG not mentioned on your website? Also, may I ask you to draw a poster of all Chinese variants of the Type 59? Many thanks!

If possible, an overall poster of all PLA tanks and armoured vehicles since 1945 would be awesome.
And some tanks which are not mentioned on this website should also be painted, like ZBD-04/04A, ZTQ-15 lt, as well as ZSD-89 version II. And those heroic tanks such as T-34-85 No.215, Type 62 No.708 and Gongchen Type 2597 Chi-Ha can be impressing.
Many thanks.

Thanks. But unfortunately, there are some mistakes in this poster and most of the Chinese tanks articles and photos. Can I provide you with some domestic info which has been verified or proved, and help you improve or rewrite those articles in the near future? Thanks a lot.
By the way, is it possible for me to contact you through email? My email address is [email protected] .

Can you do a poster for the line of American heavies? like the T29, T30, T34 Heavy, M103, T43, T110E5, T32, M6, T1 heavy, M6A2E1, T14 American heavy tank, and the T57 please?

Sry for the late answer. Since prototypes are also the growing specialty of the team since three years now, i think it’s best illustrators are concerting for one, i will add mine too, but we have at least a hundred to make to complete it. Christie alone made dozens of prototypes. BTW we are talking about actually real vehicles, not WG fantasy or paper projects ?

Would love to see a poster comparing tank round sizes from WW2 (American, Russian, German). It might be interesting to see from WW1 to Cold War rounds compared in size.

Each and every of these is on the redbubble platform, my personal shop. I’m adding new posters monthly. If there is no button, just click on the poster itself.
Best !

My grandfather crewed the American M110 while they were testing it. He always talks about it cracking the asphalt when they fired it at a high angle.

There’s a standalone poster of the shorter M107, would there be any way to order a poster of the M110?

Should the T-46 be in the Russian armour used in WW2? A poster with a bunch of experimental vehicles from WW2 would also be a cool addition.

I saw your comment above about the prototype poster. Another suggestion I have is tanks and APC used by the new Zealand and Australian forces

Stumbled onto this site and it’s been awesome to explore and learn about all of the history behind these vehicles. I noticed that Brazil had some incredible takes on armored vehicles and tank design, especially their conversions of the M3 and M4. Would a tank poster about Brazilian Armor be something that could be in the works?

How do I get a tagged version of the Panzer Blitzkrieg poster ? The description on the item page gets cut off telling you how to get this version
