Default Bellona Military Vehicle Data - 1970s publication

In 1970 Bellona Publications started to publish “Military Vehicle Data”, basically small pamphlets with a photo, line drawings and technical data on Allied vehicles. This thread contains some of the CMP and MCP vehicles published in this series.

Mike Conniford wrote 22 editions, if I am correct.
