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

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

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.

Saúl García

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

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.

Greetz,
