Hi,
Could someone tell me what the external differences are between the M1A2 and the SEP version of the M1A2. I think I know of 2; a small bolted-on? plate, to the right of the external fire extinguisher handle, and no rear fuel filler cap on this same side (the right side if looking from the front) due to the APU being mounted in the hull. Are these correct, and are there any more?

Thanks for any help,
Mike

There is also a square vent, like one you would find on a house for a dryer, to the right of the left rear headlight. It's roughly the same height as the headlight assembly.

Watch it there, Rob. I've had a long day, so cut me some slack! #:-)
