Special Operations Patrol Vehicles

Author: Leigh Neville
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9781849088305
Release Date: 2011-09-20
Genre: History

The patrol vehicles used by Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq vary quite dramatically between the theatres as well as amongst the Coalition members, and have been developed and upgraded to meet the demands of the deployment. Covering all the major Coalition nations, Leigh Neville continues his look at the elite forces deployed in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, with this analysis of their vehicles. Tracing the evolution of the vehicle types, from their historical precedents, through their designs to their operational developments, he discusses their advantages and disadvantages, along with their tactical employment. From the mine-protected vehicles used to counter the IED threat in Iraq, the use of Strykers as armoured raiding platforms by the US Rangers, to the civilian vehicles adapted for military service by both Coalition troops and Private Military Contractors in the regions, this book uses rare in-theatre photographs and colour artwork to show the variety and inventiveness of the patrol vehicles being used in combat today.

The HMMWV, better known as the Humvee or Hummer, has set the world standard for army tactical vehicles since its introduction into the US Army in the 1980s. Designed to be the successor to the jeep of World War II with a greater load-bearing capacity, the Humvee has proven to be adaptable to a wide range of roles, including weapons carrier, missile launcher, command vehicle and other specialized types. This book traces the development and use of the Humvee and its variations, including the latest families of armored Humvees used in Iraq in 2003–05, and its adoption in a peacekeeping role the world over.

M1 Abrams Main Battle Tank Manual

Author: Bruce Oliver Newsome
Publisher: Haynes Publishing UK
ISBN: 1785210998
Release Date: 2017-06-10
Genre: Transportation

The American M1 Abrams main battle tank is a revolutionary design: it broke an evolutionary development lineage from the M20 medium tank of 1941 to the M60 (which it replaced, and which stayed in production until 1987). The M1 remains the only main battle tank in the inventories of the US Army and the US Marine Corps, with years of service to come, while no replacement has been procured. It is believed that the M1 will easily serve for more than 50 years in the US alone. The US retains about 6,000 M1s, while almost 2,000 are in use with the armies of other countries including Australia, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia.

Special Forces Vehicles

Author: Pat Ware
Publisher: Pen & Sword
ISBN: 1848846428
Release Date: 2012
Genre: History

What is the ideal vehicle for special forces operations, for dangerous missions performed by small units of highly trained troops often working in enemy territory, behind enemy lines? And which vehicles have the world's armies selected, adapted and developed since modern special forces established themselves as a key arm of the military during the Second World War? Pat Ware, in this authoritative and highly illustrated book, uses all his expert knowledge of the history of military vehicles to show the fascinating variety of machinery that has been used, from converted Jeeps and Land Rovers to a bizarre collection of even more remarkable, sometimes purpose-built strike vehicles – the Scorpion, Cobra and Supacat Jackal, the LRDG Chevrolet, the Mechem, the Pinzgauer and the Warrior among them. As well as describing the anatomy of the typical special forces vehicle, with particular reference to the iconic SAS Jeeps and the Land Rover 'Pink Panther', he illustrates all of the known special forces vehicles, giving technical data, including information on power units and transmission, type of weapons, auxiliary equipment, armored protection, speed and mobility, and weight. He also explains the nature of special forces and describes their historic origins, with emphasis on units such as the LRDG, the SAS and Popski's Private army during the Second World War, and he looks at modern special forces and their role.

A DISCOVERY HIDDEN IN DARKNESS... A TRUTH BROUGHT TO LIGHT... __________________________________________ What if... scientific evidence of a coming extinction event was known and kept secret? What if... your survival was dependent on being chosen? What if... the only choice you had was to give up that chance? __________________________________________ Three years after NASA disclosed a top secret discovery, the human race was on the verge of extinction. A cataclysmic solar phenomenon unlike any other would wipe out all life on Earth at the end of the decade. Now, only seven years remain. Before the uprising, the nation's leaders developed radical solutions. Walls segregated regulation from rebellion. The country divided into territories. To survive, citizens were to obey the strict laws that required them to work toward a dismal future under military rule. And with the nation's leaders in alliance, vast underground colonies became mankind's single hope for survival-a fate only secured for a chosen few. When twenty-three year old Aubrey Adams returns to her hometown, a place now plagued with oppression, her sudden resistance sparks a drastic turn of events that leads her to a more sinister secret--one that comes with a dire warning: Run.
