Hi,

I am pleased to announce the release of the second book on the subject of the AMX-13 light tank. This is the second volume of a planned multi-volume series.

This volume covers the various turrets employed on the AMX-13 light tank including: the basic FL-10, FL-10 with ATGMs, FL-11, FL-12 and FL-15 turrets as well as the upgraded FL-10 with the 90mm gun and IR equipment. In addition to the above, specific information pertaining to the IDF, the Singapore Army and Swiss Army vehicles are also available. To top it off, there are three full-paged walkarounds depicting an IDF turret, a Singapore Army turret and the turret of the famous AMX-Sherman at the Latrun Museum. It is specifically published with the modeller in mind with 164 pages containing 361 photographs and 76 technical manual drawings. The contents also include historical and technical data that may be of interest to wargamers and military historians.

The book retails for USD 36.75 (excluding shipping) and is available for preview and purchase at: http://www.lulu.com/content/1157560

Dear Paul,

sorry to disappoint, but there is nothing pertaining to the chaffee turreted AMX-13 at the moment; maybe it will covered in subsequent edition?

Should you require any information of the AMX-13 with Chaffee turret, may I recommend to you, the superb website on French armour - http://www.chars-francais.net? But if you are looking just for the Chaffee turret, I believe there are many sources out there.

Best Regards,
Peter Lau

Thanks for the link...

I've been there before and it is great. Looks they are revamping the site.

What I probably need is a good book with pictures on the Algerian conflict.

Thanks,
Paul

Download versus Printed copies...

October 4 2007, 1:53 PM 

Where I am in New York City, a color print costs about $0.75 per page (twice for double sided). So, imagine the price for printing 164 pages which will not be the same quality as the bound one? Oops, one must pay extra for binding too. Plus, the printed copy has a cover image which is not included with the download versions.

Why did I choose download then? To get my copy immediately for a review.

Regards,

Saúl García

With the above NY rate, the printing costs would work up to whopping $123 excluding binding!

105mm turret?

October 11 2007, 8:07 AM 

Peter,

Is there also something about the 105mm turreted version like the Dutch army used?



It'd be nice if some plastic manufacturer would produce a new kit of the AMX-13.

Yes...

October 11 2007, 10:01 AM 

Hi JW,

there are about 8 pages allocated to a brief discussion of the 105mm FL-12 and FL-15 turrets. I had hoped to write about the Dutch turrets, but was unable to gather enough information for a meaningful writeout on its development. Specific items of interest for further research would consist the smoke grenade launchers, the roof MG (and pintle assembly) and the searchlight assembly. Well, maybe these would be in the next edition of this book.

Your shot the the Dutch vehicle looks great. BTW, is this the exhibit at Amersfoort?

Yeah, I have been wishing for a new AMX-13 for ages but it seems that we are the minority right now. If only the companies producing Shermans would consider doing the Egyptian AMX-Sherman...

Cheers,

Peter Lau

Peter,

This vehicle is part of the Dutch Army collection.
It was displayed and driving during an open house of the Dutch Cavalry Museum in Amersfoort.

If you are interested I have quite some walk arounds and detail shots of the vehicle.

The 105mm Howitzer version as well. (Also a model we lack in a model )

Greetz,
