Mail and viruses
The viruses that are rife on the net these days have provoked some troubles in our inflow of mails. We hope that the problem will be solved soon and we apologize for the inconvenience.
We would like to present the authors of viruses and other spammers the expression of our most sincere contempt. If you are too impotent to build, just destroy, it is easier.

What's new in 2004
It is a modest update. We are working on a CD version of the encyclopedia, which will be much more exhaustive. It already exists in French, but, because of logistical problems, it won't be available in English before next year.
There are some new features on the web site though. We added more than a hundred of new vehicles, most of them armored cars, special tanks and half-tracks. Seeing the overwhelming response to the quizzes, we propose a new one to your shrewdness: can you recognize a tank on a picture ? Yes ? No ? Anyway, have fun with it.

Next update in 2005
