I finally got time to catch up on posting and I'm proud to say we have 
one new tank designation, two support vehicle designations and a how-to 

Chrysanthos Kanellopoulos' Ha-Go has been officially designated as T052, 
with photos posted at:


It's the first operational tank in the cradle of democracy, but I'm sure 
Chrys' friends will be ready to battle in no time.

Martin Helsing's HumVee has been officially designated as SV009 and is 
fully operational as a support vehicle.  You can view photos and read 
about it's construction at:


I'm sure Martin is itching to add some armament to his vehicle and start 
hunting down anyone in his territory.

Joe Sommer's M274 Mechanical Mule had a great first outing at the 
Teamster Turmoil battle outside Gettysburg PA and has earned an official 
designation as SV010.  As you can see at:


it is certainly one of the simplest support vehicle designs and was 
effective on the battlefield in groomed terrain.  If it weren't for a 
smoking motor (caused by a paintball hit inside the motor) it would have 
had a glorious day.

Last, but not least, Doug Conn's article on how to build a steering 
linkage has been posted to:


showing how his "battle-tested" steering linkage design works to move 
his HumVee Armored Car AC004 around the battlefield.
