Yes, I would agree those are improvised, if not ingenious, lol...I think this campaign will be great for some "outside of the box" thinking, which may include some scratchbuilding....we have plenty of time, so let's go crazy! I know I'm planning to...;-)

Would truck mounted artillery count?



Well, we're looking for unusual stuff, so if you have a photo of it, and it's "off the wall" ingenuity, sure...

And I'm willing to join too, still, as the IT-1 is fine.
Really need an excuse to build it, lol. Not sure if you counted me on that due to my lack of a response, didnt have much of a chance to log in lately!

That IT-1 is right on the borderline, I'm loving that thing, it's definitely a prototype that failed the test...I would say that it is significantly different from the original tank....I feel a 10 coming in here......


Actually, I believe it went into service in a limited numbers, So, not fully failed, but I imagine that the development of through-the-bore ATGMs really killed it's chances of anything beyond being rebuilt into recovery vehicles.
I certainly like how it looks, there's a reason I've been wanting to build it!

If I see a tank converted to a logging operation in peacetime, I'll be willing to bet that they were converted in wartime first...;-) If it's got a good photo reference, why not, we're looking for unusual...
P.S. I sent in the formal Proposal, so hang on!

Would this include vehicles converted to civilian use There have been several threads here the last couple years with a plethora of photos of former military tracked and wheeled vehicles being used in construction, fire fighting, farming, logging, etc. I'm not up on how to insert links but if you type in "demilitarized" or "civilian service" in the search box above you're going to get a ton of inspiration!

I would accept mine rollers, detectors, even if the equipment was "removable", as these fit into the spirit of the Campaign Concept and are hard to fit into other campaigns. Not so much a conversion from "gun" to "bigger gun"...that said, if the reference photos are significantly different from the original object, that would be a plus...we're looking for unusual stuff here!


So, is that a yes on IT-1? Unable to link a picture right now, but the turret was replaced by a lower profile turret with an autoloader. And then there's the guidance equipment in the hull.
Not exactly 'just' a gun change. Infact the 115mm isnt mounted on it.
But, worst case, I've got a Merkava with a mine roller to build. Despite my original plans to not build said roller.
Edit: looking at the post that happened while typing, I assume that's a no.

Well, I want to keep this different from Tank Hunters, which are often just different turret/gun combinations on previously used chassis...I'm thinking of AFV's that are configured to do other things than just "F", even if just temporarily, if you get me...;-)

Sounds like stuff like Hummel, Nashorn, Sturmgeschutz, Hetzer, Marders, Jagdpanzers would count?

So, would a tank with a mine plow/roller attached count? I wouldn't think so since it could be easily detached and go back to being a tank.

This would be perfect campaign for IDF stuff like Achzarit, Nagmashot, Puma, Nakpadon, etc.

Field-conversions or factory-conversions?
If the latter, I'd be willing to join with an IT-1 (T-62 converted to a ATGM dedicated tank destroyer), if that's within the allowed conversions. As it is a technically different role than the T-62 was intended for

Yes, I think this will be a minimum 6-month long campaign...That's 8, looking for two more and I can submit!

I'm game, as long as there is a decently-long time frame! Got tons of conversion ideas I've been meaning to build...
