    Brazilian Tectran 6×6 armoured all-terrain 10-ton trucks

    G'day all. I'm looking for information, details and profile drawings of the Brazilian Tectran 6×6 armoured all-terrain 10-ton trucks. I've read, but can't confirm that the Tectran 6×6 truck is based on a Mercedes-Benz 2028 truck chassis. I'm only able to find the Tectran 6x6 truck design...

    Salamander Books nostalgia

    Although we are well provided for these days with books, magazines and above all the Internet, I still enjoy my collection of Salamander books from the 70s and 80s.

Initially at least this version of the plan included an air launch element. It appears to have been at this time when the...

    British Aerospace NBJ (New Business Jet)

    Apart from a 3 view drawing and a small paragraph in Richard Payne's Stuck on the Drawing Board, I've not been able to find much information about this design, however I recently stumbled across a 'brochure' for it. It appears to be for internal use within BAe and is dated 5th September 1989...
