Volume 3 of the Nuts & Bolts Heavy Armored Car series is devoted to the famous SdKfz.234 and its variants, and comes as usual with lots of detailed information, photos and drawings.
N&B Volume 35 and 36 on the 8-wheeled armoured cars of the Wehrmacht dealt exclusively with variants on the Büssing-NAG chassis GS.
Even before the impending military operations in North Africa, the military leadership demanded an armoured scout vehicle, better adapted to the climatic conditions, the great distances and the tactical requirements of a desert war than the vehicle family on the GS chassis, and therefore awarded the contract to Büssing-NAG for the development of a successor type, which was based on the Tp chassis.

This new book is about them. Written by Holger Erdmann and Martin Block, it has 208 pages in A4 size, approximately 365 photos which 175 are contemporary photos from manuals, combat and war fronts in b/w, most of them previously unpublished
Another 150 colour photos are of restored vehicles and their components in public and private collections, 40 colour photos of the four models from Tony Greenland and V. Branigan.
There are also 58 pages of English and German text with 5 tables, 28 pages of scale drawings of all versions and details in 1:35 scale from Lieven DeConinck, 18 camouflage schemes from Carlos Vaquerizo with tactical and units signs, for the first time detailed camouflage scheme of the production companies and 3 tables of organization of units (Kriegstärke-Nachweisungen KStN) having these vehicles in their arsenal.

The book will be available on 20th of May.

Terrific reference material and I use the copies that I own every time I build one of these in kit form. My only complaint is that they have become quite expensive for the binding format, ie: for that much I'd either expect hardcover or spiral-bound.
