Description:

Big Bang Ricochet is a new element of the Big Bang product line. This new series takes a critical and in-depth look at military vehicles and weapons for all over the world, just as Big Bang: The Mostly Illustrated RPG Guide to Modern Weapons and Big Bang: Mini Bang focus on small arms. Each issue will focus on a single family of military vehicles, plus many of the weapons commonly mounted on them.

For the inaugural issue of Big Bang Ricochet, we have chosen a relatively unknown armored vehicle that would have long ago been deemed a huge success if not for the interference of some G7 nations. This is the Argentinian Vehiculo de Combate, a chassis that has been developed as both a light tank and an infantry fighting vehicle. In this issue, we take a long look at the IFV version, known as the VCTP, or Vehiculo de Combate, Transporte de Personal. This chassis has formed the basis not only an IFV, but also a mortar carrier, several types of command posts, bridgelayers, artillery rocket launchers, self-propelled artillery guns, and air defense vehicles. While on the light side, its heaviest incarnations all weighing under 35 tons, it is perfectly suited for South America and other third world locales, since it isn't the bridge buster a heavier vehicle would be. Also covered are detailed reviews of the Swiss Oerlikon KAD-B18 20mm autocannon, the French TAD 120mm MO 120 TR mortar, the Israeli LAR-160 Artillery rocket system, the Italian OTO Breda 155mm Howitzer and the ubiquitous 66mm smoke grenade dischargers.

Additionally, the series presents factsheets about nations around the world when appropriate. These factsheets present the status of the nations military, plus a national map and broad adventure possibilities based on both the country's history and current situation. This volume presents details on Argentina.

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.
