F i r s t R e a d

 

Published on high quality glossy paper in A4 portrait format, this magazine has 50 pages full of new and interesting Tank material. It contains 51 black and white photographs and 20 colour photographs from the Afghan War.

It has 2 illustrations from a Russian manual on where to hit the German tank.

5 tactical plans are include along with data lists, which unfortunately are meaningless to me as they are in Russian. One full set of 1/35 plans of the Panther D is also included.

The subjects covered are July 1943 battle on the Eastern Front, the Panther D, and the Afghan war.

The article on the Panther D is mainly a photomontage of captured examples and wrecks; these photographs illustrate more than words what happens to a tank when it is hit. This section is worth the price of the magazine alone.

In conclusion yet once again I wish the publishers would grasp the nettle and publish in English, This now makes more commercial sense and would increase their sales ten fold.

Since they are limited to about 3000 copies worldwide get yours now to avoid disappointment.
