The Warrior British Combat Vehicle Tracked (#7509) is another great addition to the Concord Mini Color Series by Carl Schulze. The 52 page book starts with a little history on the Warrior followed by a description of the basic infantry section Warrior and a listing of the units fielding the Warrior.
Then the variants of the Warrior are covered. They are; FV511 Infantry Command Vehicle, FV512 Mechanized Combat Repair Vehicle, FV513 Mechanized Recovery Vehicle (Repair) (MRV(R)), FV514 Mechanized Artillery Observation Vehicle (MAOV) and FV515 Battery Command Vehicle (BCV)
The following section details the Warrior deployment in the Gulf War, Bosnian UN deployment, IFOR & SFOR and the KFOR deployment. The final section is short but is related to the future of the Warrior and improvements and includes some pictures of the Desert Warrior which was produced for Kuwait.
Overall, the great pictures that you would expect of a Concord book. The photos are a mix of vehicles in actual operations with some detail closeups. 2 pages of color plates and a 1:35 scale 'centerfold' of the standard Warrior. The only thing that would make this perfect is a top deck walkaround. Must have for any Warrior aficionado.
