    What books should i buy to get information on the pre-merkava days of the IDF and into the development of Merkava and Patton/Centurion upgrades? The 75mm French gunned Shermans and their performance and development are especially of interest.

  8. Whats the advantage of AR-18 style guide rods instead of guide rails? Do they wear less or something. Trying to think if AR-18 could function with 2 rails instead of 2 guiderods.

    Why do some tanks have what seems like fabric covers on their Slat armour, Like this

    Tanks guns and ammunition.

    Does someone have documents relating to the decrease of efficiency of bottlenecked ammunition compared to straight walled, and the effects of case taper, trying to figure out how much a smaller bore straight walled case is inferior to a straight walled larger bore case if both have the same cartridge base diameter, especially when concerning their efficiency in pushing APDS.

    Does anyone know the composition of Add-on anti mine belly armors? Like those installed on the Abrams TUSK upgrade.

    I think the bulge is an Engine air intake? The cage might be a stowage basket.
