British Vector 6x6 Armoured Patrol Vehicle
A new vehicle entering service with the British Army as a patrol vehicle and convoy escort. It has better armour and protection than a snatch landrover but is more manouverable and less intimidating than a tracked APC. The photographer was also told that when fully closed down, the climate control is excellent, even in current theatres.

Boeing B52 Stratofortress, Owners Workshop Manual
Another excellent Haynes manual of one of those iconic pieces of technology we wish we could own! Detailed sections on it's design and combat history (primarily covering Vietnam and Iraq), it's anatomy, systems, engines and maintenance schedules. Some really detailed and annotated diagrams and the usual crop of photos from all angles. It also has a blow-by-blow account of a training mission from the point of view of the pilot, along with an unusual viewpoint from an air-gunner.
