The title says it all, “An Ineffective System: The M247 Sergeant York.” While the book details the issues with the system, it also gives a comprehensive history. The book focuses on the needs and requirements for the system with details about the system and the problems that the technical team tried to overcome while trying to fill the void for this type of air defense system. This is the most comprehensive book I have ever read on this subject. It is worth downloading. The only thing I would change is to increase the page length by providing additional information and or illustrations/photographs.

An e-Reader such as FBReader http://www.fbreader.org/ is needed to read this book.

I have been a fan of Traveller, Striker and Squad Leader over the years. Traveller (and its miniature rules counterpart, Striker) both have vehicle design systems spanning many decades of technology development.

Hence the actual historical development of armament design is of great interest. This little booklet, nicely laid out in ePub format, traces the need for an anti-aircraft weapon and how it was built on the chassis of existing tanks.

The tension between cost, time and suitability of the weapon to its purpose all play out in this book. I won't "spoil the story" - download and read it if you want to know!

Great backgrounder for a tank / weapons designer. I am thinking of using the specifications for a design for MegaTraveller, and this will provide pictures for the weapon. So it provides for inserting into a role play game.

Even without a design system in your war game or role play game, the detailed specifications given here will make it easy to approximate if needed.

Note that a PDF file is available (as well as ePub and mobi files). Once I realised that the ePub file was being downloaded by default, I changed things so that now the PDF is downloaded by default. Download links for all three file types are included in the order details page. Thanks for the review.
