Yes. But still expense. I guess I have to raise prices for the Australian maintenance contract.

Hang on, charge the Poms - its their vehicle. ;)

I didn't pay 200 bucks just on a single Challenger book.

Ah well if some of it is Land 400, Land 121 or even the M1A2 SEP v3 upgrade related I'll happily pay a pro rata amount. :)

Hans-Peter Lohmann's book "Spähpanzer Luchs" from Motorbuch Verlag is probably the most comprehensive source ... but I don't think it was ever translated to English. Lohmann's book "Schützenpanzer Marder" was also pretty good (with co-author Rolf Hilmes) - but again, probably in German only. So, that would be the Tankograd's distinct advantage, being bilingual right from the start.

Sigh. Another 127.- EUR... and I'm by no means a completist. But, Tankograd's work deserves to be supported.

Yes, I've looked for an English translation but never found one.  Tankograd books are universally excellent and in English (as well as German), as you state, so I'm looking forward to this one.

A new book on the Chieftain, published 19 April 2019, that I haven't seen before but looks credible: https://www.amazon.com/Chieftain-Britains-Flawed-Masterpiece-Green/dp/8365958295

 

I'll put it on my Wish List and wait for some reviews to come in before purchasing as I already have some very good books on Chieftain but, if it is good, another one won't hurt!

I've just ordered this one on Challenger. https://haynes.com/en-gb/challenger-1-main-battle-tank

Yes, a fantastic title on Challenger 1, my favourite Cold War tank. But, I’d highly recommend the two Photosniper volumes and the Tankograd title to round out your collection. There are more on Challenger 1 but these are complementary and the best, in my opinion.
