Big Bang Ricochet 002: Argentina's VC TAM Medium Tank


This second issue of Big Bang Ricochet completes the coverage of Argentina's indigenous military vehicles, covering the Vehiculo de Combate, Tanque Argentino Mediano. This medium tank is built on the same chassis as the VCTP covered in Volume 1.

Along with coverage of the tank, we also provide a very deep look at the British L7 105mm Rifled Tank Gun, as well as a number of additional tank guns derived from it, plus ammunition. The TAM's machine guns are local production of the FN Herstal MAG 58 7.62mm GPMG, which means were covered in Big Bang Special Edition under the entry for the US M240 Machinegun.

In addition, general Armored Fighting Vehicle information is expanded by providing details and descriptions of numerous types of armor used around the world to protect these military vehicles, including some new types which are only now just on the verge of becoming commonplace.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
