The CD contains 404 large format .jpg images (1500 x 1000 pixels) of a M4A2(76) HVSS and M4A3(76) HVSS from the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation(MVTF), Portola Valley, California and covers virtually every aspect of the vehicles with excellent close up shots of the exterior of the hull and turret of both types with additional interior images of the hull and turret for a comprehensive coverage although the suspension isn't extensively covered due to the location of the vehicles within MVTF. As both vehicles are similar externally apart from the engine deck and rear hull arrangments many of the photos can be used for reference on both with the different engine decks and rear plates well illustrated.
The photos are broken down into the different categories on the CD menus to easily find the images you want and for easy viewing with each photo having a brief description so you know what you are looking at.
Also included on the CD is a brief history of the vehicile and a listing of additional printed reference books for added reference.
The sample images here are reduced in size considerably from those on the
CD to give and indication of the details included in the images.
The CDs have an auto run feature when used on a Windows based PC but MAC users will need to manually run the Title.htm file to get things going and the images are presented on a web based interface in your browser so the feel is just like looking at a regular web page with menus to navigate through the pages and images, all quite easy really. You can also use any other image thumbnail program to view the images if this is preferable and of course they can be printed for easier reference as desired.
Excellent photo collection of the featured vehicle with large clear images to show the details well with an easy interface to browse the images and will be very useful reference sources.

Thanks to Chris “Toadman” Hughes for the review CD.
