I have found the book.  Its circa 1980's  but has the modified  Sheridan and Huey  helicopters in amongst other stuff  including  actual  Soviet era armour. It's  called  NTC , a primer to modern  land combat.  Front  cover  has a modified Sheridan  with a sagger anti tank missile  mounted above the gun barrel.

Many of these conversion have also metal plates grafted onto the hulls to resemble a certain vehicle's silhouette - like the M109 above; the turret has been moved visually forwards, so that it resembles a Shilka. There were also Sheridans with cosmetic prothesis' on the hull (front and rear), so that they look more T-72ish; note the open front ends of the extensions, so that the driver has a better field of view:



Soviet Forces also played the disguise game - check this artful T-34/Leopard 1 travesty:

On the model side.. paint is proceeding, should have an update by the end of the weekend.

On the Vizmod stuff.. very interesting pix, love that "Leopard" though, that is inspired.

I have the Concord Publication - National Training Centre which is full of the Vizmod stuff and really interesting reading. The Sheridan is the basis for a lot of the Vizmod vehicles.

Note the early use of composite materials in the reinforced concrete radio aerial...
