I think we need to implement the "Strato Solution" for the big turret-less tank destroyers;

Strato50 wrote:
This upcoming Battleday, I'm all for trying out the impregnable front end of ANY tank destroyer, since they have the exact same limitations as any turret-less tank. Bring on the masking tape.

Have we even tried that before?

I think it will add an interesting dynamic to battles.

The AFV's were pretty heavily armored in the front, so there is a historical precedent.

It would level the playing field a bit for the turret-less tanks and we might be more of them on the field, which IMHO is a good thing.

gearboxes,

Just be aware, some upgrade gearboxes that will fit the HL Panther G will not fit the HL Jagdpanther.

The left motor sits too high and makes contact with the upper hull, due to the upper hull's shape to accommodate the mantlet on a JP.

At least, I ran into this.

If I can get a set of upgrades that fit and we do the "Strato Solution" I could be persuaded to make my JP into an IR.

Gearboxes for the Jagdpanther, these are supposed to fit, the motors are much lower mounted and should not have the difficulties I encountered.

I did a quick search because Welsh is out of stock, beware the "steel gears" for JagdPanthers on eBay, they're definitely the cheap pot metal versions. If you like I can email Welsh / Mato / Rctank.de guys and see whats up with the nicer asiatam / taigen (?) versions for it.


Glen Im guessing they're LONG gearbox shafts? What are the panther's?

*EDIT* Oh wait, nevermind, BINGO! Nice asiatam LOW PROFILE long shaft Jagdpanther gearbox Very Happy

I did not order them.

I seem to recall that Freakydude at Immortal Hobbies might be getting something in that will fit the JP, if that happens, it would be a "good thing"

I have to aggree most of the big turretless tank destroyers did in fact have much better frontal than the main battle tanks only because they were at a disadvantage being turretless
And having all that area available for armour in someway a advantage

hey Greg, why is it all parted out like that? Is it leftovers from other projects?
