Morning lads

I am posting this on behalf of one of our US brethren, Duster...


Quoted Text

Hello Gentlemen,
I'm hoping that one of you can help me. I' looking for photos and info
on the Olifant's predesesors the Skokkian, and the very early petrol
engined Olifants that were sent to the border with Angola in I believe
1978. The Semel I ' ve read was the prototype, the Sokkian a more
refined version,and theOlifant Mk.1 the refined Skokkian built by
Sandock Austral the people that built all the later Diesel Olifants. Any
thing will be a great help.

George,

Have a look at this thread: Brilliant new periodical

Basically this magazine is doing a complete history of the Olifant MBT (which according to the editor will run up until issue 9 at the very least)... they also do international subscriptions...
