My copy of this one arrived just before Xmas, for a small (A5 size) book it definetly packs a lot in.
Covers both AFVs' softskins, Artillery, Helo's, a large chunk of the Waiouru museums moveable collection. More later.

Best way to illustrate what this covers is to show the table of contents – as previously stated - it packs a lot in.
Does not go into much detail on the individual vehicle, generally just a page or 2, though on the M41, there’s 4 pages. They were unaware of the transfer of NZ 30545 to AWM Cairns, so have let them know, though haven’t heard back as yet.

I really like the book, though I would prefer it to have been in A4 size rather than A5, though undoubtedly that would have resulted in a price increase.

Tried to post this a couple of times yesterday, figured out the pics were too big, so resized with MSPaint
