Weapon Mounts for Secondary Armament has long been the most respected and sought after work ever published on weapon mounts. It is a comprehensive reference guide outlining the history, design and location of mounts for secondary armament on combat and tactical vehicles of many nations developed during the period starting with World War I and continuing to 2007 (publication year of this second edition). Book includes data and details on coaxial and combination gun mounts, ball mounts, cupola gun mounts, bow gun mounts, fender and sponson mounts and other types of mounts for secondary armament weapons; primarily machine guns up to and including 20mm in caliber.
The edition is based on information and material gathered from previously published historical and technical works in this field, as well as that gathered by direct contacts and interviews with military groups, manufacturers and individuals concerned with the history, design and development of combat vehicles and armament for those vehicles.
