Depending on when this runs to I am in. I am currently in 3 campaigns as it is
I have 4 variants of Sherman in the stash!
Question I have is would it have to be the traditional tank version of these vehicles or could we do derivatives i.e. tank destroyers based on the hull like the M-10 / JagdPanzer IV/70 / SU-85?
I'd like to keep it simple and limit it to gun tanks, but again I'm open to convincing otherwise.
I like Robin's Soldiering On idea as well!
Meanwhile, if I'm counting right, we already have 9 interested in this one. Anyone else?
My opinion, for what it is worth, only gun tanks this time. Save the 'Soldiering On' and 'Derivatives' for later, two campaign ideas for free
Soldiering On would be all the tanks and rebuilds that were kept in use long after their 'Best Before'-date.
A Sherman or Stuart chassis rebuilt with a bigger engine and used in tractor pulling contests would be possible.
I think it is a Stuart chassis
Pulls Britains largest plough, not exactly tractor pulling but close.Could that sign be correct? Was that type of transmission cover seen at El-Alamein ???
Working in the forestry business
Derivatives could be anything else that the chassis was used for in the time frame when the gun tank was still 'state-of-the-art': everything except the gun tanks. Prototypes, one-offs, paper-panzers, field conversions, anything goes as long as the "original" chassis is used. The Nashorn which used a combination of Pz III and Pz IV chassis would be just on the limit of allowed.
Just my opinion ....
I think I'll go with a plain gun tank this time and save the derivatives and "zombies" for later
