Big Bang Ricochet 037: Ferrari F333E Lizard

ZIP File

Eventually, every automotive manufacturer on the planet will get sparkly eyed at the prospect of getting a lucrative government contract to manufacture military vehicles. Even the Luxury vehicle makers get in on the act. The Mercedes G-Wagen has been a staple of European and Asian militaries for two decades. Land Rover has been supplying military trucks for over 50 years. BMW sold motorcycles to the Nazis. Porsche designed the Tiger tank and the Wiesel AWC. Even if your civilian vehicles sell for $100,000 each, you can sell to the military. The Lamorghini LM-002 was adopted by Saudi security forces. And yes, even Enzo's acclaimed Ferrari Engineering got in on the action.

The Ferrari L333E Lizard is the result of that effort, produced in the early 1980's. It was an odd little vehicle at least a decade ahead of its time, providing special operations capabilities before special ops became a buzz words driving a large chunk of the world's military budgets. The Lizard offered sports car performance with armored protection. It was also unusual for its very odd design choices, including the roof hatch weapon mount and the overly spacious engine compartment.

Includes two weapon entries: The Folgore Ant-Tank Rocket launcher and the Euromissile HOT ATGM. 10 pages of content

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.
