Challenger 2 book help

#1
Hi all
Looking for some help in my next book (Challenger2) need stories on what crew serving or served think of both Challengers, their good points and bad please, also looking for funny and serious episodes. No name or units will be used unless you are happy with that, i.e it would look like this Cpl J a comdr said ********.

All help welcome

Previous books so you can see not a Walt in tank clothing are Conqueror, Chieftain and FV430 due out soon

I'll vouch for Bob. Chieftain was a great book.

If you want the outsider's view of the tank, I made a few comments in the 'why is Chally better than Abrams' thread.

Come on guys there must be some CR2 crew out there with some funny or otherwise stories
And there is a very good reason why no one is answering.

Listy

I think you are wrong I am not asking anyone to break opsec or anything else, just looking for the type of story that is in my other books, the tech stuff is already sorted with MoD. Stories like moans that gun crutch moved to rear decks now no decent flat space to lie. is what I am after. I may have read the wrong implication into your reason why, but please dont take me as a Walt, I am bona fida mil and author. I have had great help from all angles of the mil community but the more you advertise hopefully the more you get in feed back. If schools inst feel they can help me within unclass and op and persec on other sites then why should this be different. Also I have quite a few people here with things that a no serving walt could not get.

Do tell more of it
If your gen-up and want first hand info don't speak to the little coward who whilst crying stated that ' I shouldn't be here when they've gone because I'm a Sgt!!!'. Also locked his hatch so Reccy Mech couldn't get in while under attack! B"£rd is a coward an that's being generous.
You'll get my No. if your genuine and I'll happily talk to you.

Arte et Marte!

Cheiftain book was very good...my mate was on the rear cover :D seemed to me it was done by a bloke who knew what he was talking about and spent a bit of time on them. Saw the Conquerer book too...shame there wasn't any pics of the AVRE variants which were planned.

Hingme hope you can see I am gen, would appreciate any help. BTW you are the 5th person to tell me about our friend, I thought he was a bit iffy when I watched his interviw on TV.

105 AVRE thanks for comments on books I know what you mean about stuff missing, that is down to the editor and that particular publisher not allowing more pages or colour.

Chieftain book was very good mmmmmmm....Lots of typos in it though,and huge chunks copied from AESP etc there is also one pic of CR1 saying it is a Chieftain in a Fire position or something similar!

Trelawney the typos are accepted but annoying, but not large ammounts, after I had proof read and corrected Crowood published the unedited version. CR1 pic is correct as Chieftain IF the whole caption as written had been used, "although not a Chieftain this CR1 goes to show the lengths that crews will go to to cam up" They also cut the legends to the drawings which Yes did come from UHB and Gunnery pam but as they are some of the best why not use them. I tried to write a book that told the story of the tnak, the editor wanted a picture postcard collection. I do not think that huge chunks were copied and anything thta I did use was written in my words.
