Re: Maus? [TANKS]

I hadn't thought of that, Derek. That does incline me even more
towards 1/6. Be nice to be able to stick scale pieces on it and have
crewmen :) Or do a diorama at some point for a photo op.
I don't really see a Maus as a worldbeater, as I like the rules as
they are, nice and simple. No special claims to 10 hits, or
hoverjets, or CWIS systems to shoot down incoming paintballs(although
it would great great fun to see the latter in action). I expect that
the Maus would be 40/4, just like many other fine tanks with better
claims to invincibility. To my way of thinking, it's a bigger target
with no special advantages. At 1.68 meters, it'll be tough to miss,
and I seriously doubt that it'll be outrunning many other tanks.
Maybe Aahz's russian beast ;) Realistically, even with big motors,
they will have to be geared more for torque than speed just to turn.
Huge long tracks mean lots of torque required.
While only 1 was completed, they were put into production, several
hulls and turrets made, and one was deployed for battle.
M60A1 "the Beast" under construction
FT-17 "Frenchy" also U/C
Why do tankers call infantry "Crunchies"??? Because they ARE!!!
