While the Germans are the most famous users of armed motorcycles, thanks to their MG34 armed BMW cycle/sidecar combinations, they were by no means the first to come up with the concept. The first to use machinegun-toting motorcycles were the British, who employed them as part of the Motor Machine Gun Corps and its successor units from 1915 to 1918.

They mounted the water-cooled Vickers medium machinegun on the Clyno motorcycle with a customized van sidecar, which was probably the best bike made in Britain at the time, holder of dozens of hill climb records, which was at the time considered the optimum means of measuring a motorcycle's offroad ability.

Able to span the length of the British sector of the Western Front, the Clyno-Vickers MG Carrier on countless occasions provided the necessary mobility and firepower to smash German breakthroughs and drive enemy troops back into their trenches.

This document fully details the Clyno-Vickers Machine Gun Carrier, plus the Vickers medium machine gun that armed it. Appendices providing information compatible with D20 Modern, Spycraft 2.0, and Savage Worlds is included.

Unlike past issues of Big Bang Ricochet, the silver-covered books will provide everything necessary to allow you to drop the vehicle straight into your game. No more hunting for other issues covering weapon entries included in previous issues. please be aware this all-inclusive nature means that these silver edition booklets may occasionally duplicate material that has appeared in previous products.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
