Based on the author's own involvement as an engineer at the company through the s and early s and on more recent research of the archives at Brooklands Museum and the PRO, this book explains the successes and failures of leading-edge developments at Vickers, in the early days of . War has been a fact of life ever since the dawn of civilization. But while armies once charged into battle with little more than wooden clubs or stone axes, centuries of innovation have led to a wide range of powerful and efficient weaponry. Readers will trace the history of weapons and other military technology, including such developments as guns, tanks, and guided missiles.   This modifier to damage is not adjusted for two-handed weapons or off-hand weapons—it always remains equal to the wielder’s Wisdom modifier. A guided weapon may be wielded as a normal weapon, using Strength to modify attack and damage rolls, but this goes against the weapon’s nature and imparts a –2 penalty on all attack rolls made in.
