As with our previous Vehicle Compendium you will get in fact 2 books with this deal:
M12A2 General Longstreet Combat Walker
The M12A2 was outwardly similar to the A1, but replaced the flat-sided turret with a cast-metal hemisphere mounting a heavy flamethrower. The flamethrower was fed with liquid petroleum from tanks located inside the hull, with the compressor located in the turret itself.
Most A2s served on the Pacific front, where they proved to be extremely valuable for breaching Japanese fortifications.
M12A8 General Longstreet Combat Walker
The M12A8 kept the flamethrower turret of the A2 but added a Bazooka and a British-made PVAT launcher. This gave it awesome firepower, but put a lot of strain on the suspension.
M12A5 General Longstreet Combat Walker
The M12A5 variant was built on the same chassis as the A1-A2, but carried the mass-produced M76 anti-aircraft turret with quad Browning .50 cal AAMGs. The guns were extremely heavy and often shortened the vehicle's service life considerably, but they provided great Anti-Aircraft firepower.
