To accomondate the planned vehicles for the 8th Armored, I want to design a "one-fits-all" weapons platform. This will be the base for the
- Main Battle Tank
- Tank Destroyer (Jagdpanzer)
- Recovery vehicle (Bergepanzer)
and maybe some extras like a Bridge vehicle, an Air Defense Vehicle, and an Artillery.
So here are the first images of the Aktros:
Here is the base hull, that I will use for all Aktros. As you can see it is a bit longer than a Leman Russ, but about the same width.
The engine deck for the MBT
The MBT deck with the openings for the turret, driver and bow gunner.
This is the superstructure for the Jagd-Aktros ind comparison to the MBT.
The Jagd-Aktros will be armed with a heavy Bolter and a Vanquisher gun.
This is a quick "blue tack" mount of the gun.
This is now the recovery vehicle, the Berge-Aktros.
It will have a crane, two spades (front and rear), a large toolbox, and some other stuff.
My idea is to have a Imperial Guards army that consists of 3 pillars:
- The XIX Guards Regiment - a "standard" IG regiment, with the doctrines:
- Iron Discipline
- Sharp Shooters*
- Xeno Specialist* - Ork
- Plated Armor*
*I'm not sure if these are the correct names, as I translated them from the German version
- 7th Airmobile Regiment - these are the main Dei Greci users.
For these I don't have the doctrines yet, as I will need some tailor made doctrines. But it will use the following unit org:
-HQ with Atropos & Kommisar
2x LasCan with Ponos
2x heavy bolter with Ponos
-Standard with "normal" airmobile troops" plus a possible HW-squad with 3 Mortars
3x Kratos Assault Gun
-Fast Attack with
3x Orthos AA
-Heavy Support with either
3x Tisiphone PLUS 1x Kairos
or 3x Hephaistos
- The third pillar will be the 8th Armored Battlegroup, which will mostly use the standards Armored Battlegroup rules.
So, the next itmes I'm going to work on, are the vehicles for the 8th Armor.
