This quarterly magazine is printed in German only, but it has some great images and reference in it.

M60, M60A1, M728
The M60 / M60A1 / M60A1 (AOS) / M60A1 (RISE) MBTs and the M728 CEV in Service with the US Army
The Tank, Combat, Full Tracked: 105-mm Gun, M60 and its variants were the main weapon system of tank forces of the US Armed Forces in the 1960s and 1970s. The M60 main battle tank (MBT) was primarily designed to fight Soviet MBTs in central Europe if the Cold War ever turned hot. The Combat Engineer Vehicle, Full Tracked M728 based on the M60 was also fielded by US Armed Forces. The M60 was the first tank designated as MBT from the start and fielded by the US Army. It also was the last of the so-called ‘Patton' tanks named after General George S. Patton, Jr. and the last vehicle of its kind fielded by the US Armed Forces featuring a cast hull and turret.
This publication describes in great detail the development history, active service and technology of the M60 family covering the MBT variants M60, M60A1, M60A1 (AOS), M60A1 (RISE), M60A1 (RISE Passive) and the CEV M728.

ANZAC Army Vehicles
Vehicles of the Modern New Zealand and Australian Armies
This publication seeks to reflect the close bonds of the New Zealand and Australian Armies forged in war.
The NZ Army ranks as one of the smallest armies in the world. Yet in the past decade the army’s capabilities have been significantly enhanced by the addition of new vehicles. The most important of these is the 8x8 Light Armoured Vehicle, the NZLAV.
Australia, across the Tasman Strait, possesses a military far more capable. The army revolves around two divisions that encompass seven regular infantry battalions, one armoured regiment, two cavalry regiments, an independent cavalry squadron, and a surveillance and target acquisition regiment. Among the primary tactical vehicles are the M1A1 AIM SA Abrams main battle tank, the M113AS4 armoured personnel carrier, the ASLAV wheeled armoured fighting vehicle and the Bushmaster protected mobility vehicle.
