Among the export versions of the American M1 Abrams main battle tank family the Australian M1A1 AIM SA certainly is the most compelling. The opening chapter of this publication features in-the-field shots of the "Aussie" M1A1 Abrams whilst on exercise, and this is followed by a walkaround showing the tank in more detail. Another chapter features the M88A2 HERCULES armoured recovery vehicle purchased for the Abrams-equipped units. A number of combat support vehicles (e.g. tank transporters, fuel tankers) are regularly seen operating alongside the M1A1s and M88A2s, and a selection of these vehicles appear in the final section of this volume. This is the first comprehensive documentation on the topic.
