The Alecto was the SP Gun that nearly was. Designed as a tracked, mobile. lightly armoured SP gun it got to the earlty stages of trials. This is the standard Service Handbook for the vehicle and its 95mm QF howitzer. The manual gives every possible detail and is profusely illustrated with some exceptionally fine line and isometric drawings. The rarity of the original publication makes this a must for any tank manual collector. and for all others who are interested in the development of SP artillery. Restricted document originally published in 1945. Very well illustrated. Scarce.
