There is no mention of any images of the Swedish vehicles deployed to Liberia...is that correct?

Jason, I think there are a couple of pics of the Liberia verhicles in the forward inside cover. I'm not sure if there are more, I will check when I get home and get back to you. Basically they were standard CV9040C in white, IIRC, and there are quite a few pics of the CV9040C.

Cheers!

We also deployed one bgbv 90C arv to Liberia.
The strf 9040C was replaced with strf 9040B1 in 1996.
Info and images of the Liberia deploymnent can be found in the CV 90 Photo guide by the Swedish Armour Historical Society SPHF

Hi Stefan,

Any clarification on the Liberia images? It would be a shame if there weren't more than a couple of images in the book...I would classify that as a possible "low" point.

Jason, sorry I couldn't get to my cave until now. I checked, and there are 3 pics from Liberia, two of which show a CV9040C and one a Bgbv 90C ARV.

HTH!
Cheers!

Thanks very much for checking the book Stefan. It is too bad there aren't more images of the Liberia deployed vehicles in the book. I am sure it would have greatly assisted modellers when the version deployed to Liberia are released in kit form.
