Very interesting .... Tyng Labs makes no mention what-so-ever of Anvilus
Plastic Works as they proclaim their latest developments. Was Vern
Dernberger right? Has Tyng oppressed Sommer to the point that he has
completely forsaken the Tyng Regime? Have the deep-seated economic
conflicts-of-interest finally prevented Tyng Labs and Anvilus Plastic
Works from finalizing their joint venture? Clearly, the Tyng Regime is
starting to falter, even before the battle begins.
Meanwhile, the latest status reports from the 4th Armored Tri-Pact
Division show that the hobby's only super-power is gearing up for war.
Will Montgomery recently completed the installation of the gun system on
his new Panther ... the last major task to be completed. With an
extremely robust track system, proven drive system, no-nonsense gun
system and over 15 years of R/C combat experience, Will and his Panther
will be the main workhorse for the 4th ATPD.
John Pittelli completed his Panzer IV a couple weeks ago and has been
working hard on the proving grounds to ensure that all systems are
functioning properly. Although John is an R/C rookie, he is highly
motivated to face the forces of the Tyng Regime, as can be read in his
latest status report:
Herr General: Yuor faithful oberst is reporting with
the latest test results from S.P.G. The Mark IV is
totally operational by remote control. No longer will
we have to risk the lives of our men in combat. The
new powerplant has boosted speed to an amazing XXXX feet
in XXXX seconds over uneven terrain. She has no problem
with land mines (dog doo) and tank traps (rocks, pine
cones and XXXX inch logs). After fine tuning the drive
system (ie. remembering to tighten all the bolts) she ran
even better. All that on a battery with only XXXX%
power. The Tyng Tricycle Regime will definitely fall.
That's assuming they make it onto the field of battle.
The upgrade of the venerable Tiger-1 has also been completed recently,
including a new drive system, faster rotate mechanism, tubular magazine
and more accurate elevate mechanism. Field trials of the Tiger-1 have
demonstrated that it is well suited to take on anything that the Tyng
Regime can muster.
All of the operational vehicles of the 4th ATPD are currently being
painted in camo schemes suitable for their expected theatres of operation.
If the Tyng Regime forces show up for battle, the 4th ATPD will be
prepared to end the battle quickly and decisively.
Commander, 4th ATPD
