Well after reading said book which I might add I throughly enjoyed my kindle suggested I should read Main Battle Tank.
Again most enjoyable read.
But I note that the author had another go at a support arm.
Very brave saying that a REME recce mechs were a bullet short of a bandolier. He is just lucky most of them can't read that well. Your average recce mech wouldn't be throwing his handbag at you and writing nasty thing on the internet in a hissy fit. More like a 50 ton shackle or an anchor plate pin.
