Default Sd.Kfz. 9

A little project that started on a whim and a photo and spun a bit out of control. It has limited use in the game beyond a curiosity and decoration in a scenario. But I did learn a couple of new techniques I can apply elsewhere. I MIGHT add a couple to the game but not 32 (!)....but they did build 2500 of them. Thinking more and more I may use these for the "barge carrier".



The Churchill is there as a size comparison. The FAMO is a big vehicle 8.32 metres long

These are 200% of normal so if anyone wants to add one to a personal SHP file they need to be pixel resized to 50% then converted to BMP format

Yes thanks - see them now

To add:
Look great! could add as Heavy Transport :P - a great deal of the photos I have seen of the "famo" show it towing / recovering tanks and other heavy vehicles (even when it took 2 to pull a tiger!).

I was just " doodling" over morning coffee one day and that's what resulted. I'm slowly building a Vimy Ridge map from Venola Contours so I was in a "WW1" frame of mind.

There's a story that the last known use of Mk Vs were former Estonian Composites dug in along the Pirita River by the Russians in August 1941 as stationary gun platforms. The problem is the game is not set up to handle sponson guns so even if I did add it to the files ( which I might "just for fun..." )...it would have to be a kludge as it;s neither turreted as the game understands turreted and it's not really an SP gun as the game understand SP guns so however it was put in would not be a satisfactory solution and we are not writing new code to make a single Icon that has no serious place in the game work. The "best" idea I've had for it would be as an invisible turret Icon but no matter how it's put in something ends up being at odds with reality

Those look great Don. I like the supplies added to the beds.

If you are interested in the Sd.Kfz. Half-tracks, I have a bunch in my German Half-tracks file already posted on here. Save you some time possibly.

Thanks for the offer Joe but your 7's are a bit too small


6.85 x 2.35 m = 45x15 pixels not 40x15

That example is enlarged 300% ..
