Digitally reproduced AFV user handbooks and reports from original Army documents

All our handbooks and reports are for armoured fighting vehicles (AFV). These include army tanks, armoured cars, reconnaissance vehicles, personnel carriers, ambulances, recovery and other armoured tracked and wheeled vehicles. Tank manuals are in 2 main categories - user and technical. They are unique and provide an invaluable source of reference for historians, modellers, collectors and vehicle restorers as well as being a source of memories for ex-servicemen.

User manuals - these generally cover the day to day operations and maintenance. They often contain technical data, hints and tips for the crew, how to drive and routine maintenance.

Technical and workshop manuals - these were made for use by advanced crew personnel, LAD and REME and for base workshop operations. They cover the detailed repair and replacement of major units, in addition to more detailed explanation of major assembly workings.

Special Reports - these reports can be on any aspect of a particular vehicle, or family of engines or transmissions. Often rare, these reports also give detailed glimpses into the design and use of AFVs.
