Weapons of the ADF pocket guide – Part 2 OUT NOW

In researching these two booklets, it struck me how hard it was to nail down specific facts. Defence is pretty cagey about exact facts and figures – sometimes even about which specific model or upgrade they use, especially with big-ticket items like Navy’s missiles.

Manufacturers too are cagey in a lot of cases – but also bombard (pun intended) you with PR spin and sales talk.

Wikipedia is an amazing resource – but can’t be relied upon 100%, especially when there’s several variants and upgrades of a particular weapon and the researcher has to deduce which one to go with.

I hope I did OK, but there’s bound to be errors. So don’t rely on my info to win your next battle.

Seriously, though, if you do find errors or omissions, I’d be happy to receive suggestions and corrections via editor@militarycontact.com

Another thing that struck me too was that these two booklets may well be the only resource in the world that brings this information together in one – now two – handy reference guides.

As such, they are a very valuable resource – and, as always, we are happy to give them to our loyal fans, in downloadable, printable format, totally FREE.

However, we do ask one teeny weeny favour in return – please subscribe to our YouTube channel – and watch a video or three while you’re there!

 

 

Both these Weapons’ Guides, which you can download and print (ideally on 6×4 photo paper – at home or in any photo-printing shop)(or print on plain paper to save space) are viewee-twoee sized – and, if you need a viewee twoee to put them in, we have those for sale here. We can even print them and preload your viewee twoee for you (for a fee)(on plain paper).

 

Thank you for your interest and your support,

      Hi Gerry,
      thank you for your kind feedback on the weapons guide.
      It took quite some effort to pull all that info together – from sources that are not very forthcoming 😉
      In fact, I think those guides are pretty unique in the world – drawing them all together, almost like old-school footy cards.
      I once was RAEME too – aircraft fitter.
      If you’re interested, there’s a short bio here – https://www.contactairlandandsea.com/about-us/
      Looking forward to having you as a fan and hearing more feedback as time rolls on.

    I wondered if it was possible to obtain the same earmuffs as worn by the fellas involved in the training course as shown in the contact video. I’m not prepared to rejoin to get them however!
