Weird World War II T-34 Railgun Tank Destroyer

Next up, the T-34 Tank Destroyer with Railgun. It fires a frisbee shaped very hard steel disk, which generates lift at a very high velociy, so has a far longer range than a shell. The downside is that the disk can catch a gust of wind and drift off course.

The huge capacitors generate a massive charge on firing, so the crew are always a bit nervous that it may earth on the tank, and several crews have been smoked this way. It takes time to recharge the capacitors from the engine, but the extra range on the open steppes is felt to be worth it.


  1. I'm really liking the look of these beasts!

  2. Well you have to do something while your opponents are getting their 7YW and 1848 Imagi-nation stuff together :)

    Will soon play 1st WWW2 game vs US forces my friend is building.
