3. Delete the fields from image line from the code if you do not have a corresponding picture.

4. Many of the fields are optional, and have comments in place to indicate that. You can leave those fields blank, and they won't show up in the finished article.

5. Fill in the six sections (Description, Equipment and Capacities, Cargo, Variants, Design Quirks, Bibliography) to the best of your capability. Added "Weapons and Equipment" instead of Equipment and Capabilities if the support vehicle is not armed or meant for combat. Put name of primary source material and link under, Bibliography section.

6. Delete any categories that are not applicable.

7. Click on the Show preview button and review your article for mistakes.

8. Press the Save page button.

9. Bask in the pride of your article, with our thanks.
