I searched for a thread like history of Soviet tank,to no avail.....I am interested how does replacing/upgrading AFVs practice works in US Army.I obtained R.P Hunnicutt book on Patton,which gave me the idea about introduction dates and various upgrades for Pattons.I had to search elsewhere for other vehicles.However,it is unclear to me how upgrading proceeded,what happened to older vehicles? Example,M113 was produced in three improved version. A1 (1964); A2 (1979); A3 (1987) ...however,what happened to A1 when A2 introduced? They all were upgraded? NG received them?

I was at Ham Radio Outlet this past weekend and found an interesting book. Seems like this would be a good thread for periodic perusal. Anyhow, the book. The Secret Wireless War The Story of MI6 Communications 1939-1945 Geoffrey Pidgeon Special communications Units I & 11/12 and DWS from 1942-1947. http://www.amazon.com/The-Secret-Wireless-Geoffrey-Pidgeon/dp/0956051529 I've dipped into it slightly and it seems fairly comprehensive. It would make a great companion book with Louis Meusltee's Wireless For the Warrior series.
