Captain Scarlet Spectrum Agents' Manual is "a technical guide to Spectrum, the global security service of 2068, and features background information, a history of its creation, profiles of leading agents, confidential details of Spectrum’s most valuable weapon in the fight against the Mysterons, and fully annotated cutaway drawings of Spectrum vehicles. The book finishes with comprehensive Mission Files, making it the complete and essential manual for all Spectrum Agents."

Such vehicles include Zero-X (which also appeared in Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons), the WAF Wombat, the RTL-2, and World Navy battleship W.N.S. Atlantic.
