Australia's Protected Mobility Vehicle
Issue 19 of the Fast Track series, it has both in action photographs and a detailed walkaround, 40 pages with 84 colour photographs and English text.
MAN Support Vehicles
The most modern Trucks of the British Army
Manufactured by Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg (MAN for short), one of the world's leading truck manufacturers, the Support Vehicles (SV) fleet replaced a range of older truck designs that had been in service with the British Army since the Cold War. The SV truck range began entering service in 2007 and it consists of different cargo vehicles with a payload of 6, 9 and 15 tonnes, as well as unit support tankers and recovery vehicles. The fleet of well over 7,000 Support Vehicle trucks includes those in Medium Mobility (MM) configuration based on the MAN HX, and Improved Medium Mobility (IMM) configuration based on the MAN SX range. Today, SV vehicles are in service with nearly every unit of the British Army and Royal Marines, as well as with establishments of the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. They have already proved themselves on operations, for example with British forces deployed on Operation Telic in Iraq and Operation Herrick in Afghanistan.
This is the first-ever comprehensive publication on the MAN trucks in British military service.
The New Armoured infantry Fighting Vehicle of the Bundeswehr
After a long and demanding development the new Schützenpanzer Puma armoured infantry fighting vehicle was now introduced to the German Bundeswehr. During his research the author was granted hitherto unprecedented access to the development history, technology and training of the Puma. This publication shows on 128 pages in two volumes and with a total of 350 illustrations so many details of the weapon system that the reader is able to "look over the shoulder" of engineers, mechanics and crew. A worthy documentation of this latest high-tech asset to the German armed forces.
T 34 NVA
The Soviet T-34 Tank and its Variants in Service with the East German Army (NVA)
The first tanks of the East German armed forces in the immediate post-war era became the Soviet T 34/76 and T 34/85. These vehicles came from Red Army wartime production and were soon supplemented by post-war Polish production vehicles. During its service in the armed forces of the German Democratic Republic (DDR) the T 34/85 was modernised to German T 34/85m standards. Additionally several German-designed T 34-based armoured recovery vehicles and specialised vehicles were introduced. Alongside these served SU 85 and SU 100 self-propelled guns.
This publication comprehensively describes the various production batches of the T 34 in the DDR, the modernisation efforts, the variants and last but not least the story of the T 34-equipped units of the Kasernierte Volkspolizei (KVP) and Nationale Volksarmee (NVA) of the DDR.
