I resently found out that MAFVA is related to the magazine "Tankette" (or the other way around )

I'm looking for an old issue of this magazine: Vo.21 No.3 because there should be an article in there about the Tracked Rapier.

I hope someone can help me with getting my hand on this article.

Derek is right. That issue of the Tankette magazine is still available. I hold the back issue stock so just contact me directly by email and I will give you the details of how to get it.

You may be interested to know that issue Vol31 No 9 also carries an article on the Rapier: Blindfire Radar, Launcher and Optical Tracker.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks Gary, You beat me to it!

Marcel, you may also fall back on the Information Service that I operate.
