Comments: The book is the first major work to cover this type of vehicle. The book details the development and vehicle description of both the Saladin fire support vehicle and the Scorpion medium reconnaissance vehicles. The Saladin’s active service in Vietnam is covered for the first time. The text is supported by extracts from vehicle manuals, specifications, ammunition charts and photos of preserved vehicles that detail the general, internal and external and close up parts of both vehicles. Camouflage and markings for both vehicles are covered in some detail.  Most photos are seen here for the first time and have come from private collections.

Includes information on the M113A1 Fire Support Vehicle (The Beast).
