Re: Op Hercules - Malta '42

A nice unit for some interesting vehicles Panzer-Abteilung zbV 66 was scheduled to support Operation Herkules and is reputed to have had at least 10 Russian Heavy tanks (at least one KV-2). Note added commander's cupola in the photos here http://beutepanzer.ru/Beutepanzer/su/t-34/t-34early/t-34_41-4...

Re: Federal spoiler attack (game set-up)

Great looking set up with lots of variety - ships, trains, boats, planes and all sorts of troops.

Looking forward to the AAR. Another solo game, Richard?

Re: Interesting secondary armament - Tiger I

Interesting photo, but are we sure the guns aren't the much more common SG-43 Goryunov? David Nope, not sure that's why I said "appear to be" as these ones have the chunky barrel more like the DS-39 and lack the external ring of the barrel quick change handle on the SG-43. I found the pic...

Interesting secondary armament - Tiger I

Found this picture when looking for something else. Interesting from two points of view:
1. the addition of two Soviet MMGs on the rear deck (or are they just being transported?)
2. the MMGs appear to be the relatively rare DS-39
