|One of the Flakwagens that got|
past the drawing board
Hi all! As promised at the end of my last post, here's an update on my latest project - a Laser Destroyer! This is not intended to be an everyday part of my army, instead it's just an idea which struck me and I decided to try and model it up. The seeds were first sown playing the excellent Eastern Front mod for Company of Heroes. I often play as the Luftwaffe faction, and their reward unit is the Nashorn Tank Destroyer bearing the dreaded 'eighty-eight' FlaK gun. I love this gun, on the game and in history. In the game, it's a basic necessity to stop waves of T-34s and KV-1s overunning you. Its long range, enormous power and freakish accuracy make it a truly game-dominating artillery piece.
