I missed out on the All's Quiet Kickstarter, very happy to see the game survived the collapse.

I picked up a Starter Box from Ironclad Games, and watched Rob Oren's video.

I have a mystery piece from the Tank sprue, maybe it's a handle? The build it diagram points vaguely to the bottom rear of the tank, but I can't see it in any pictures. I think Rob tossed it out. What is it supposed to be, where does it go?

Ah, is this a hitch? For towing trailers, the Tesla Cannon trailer, etc? If so, does the force list spell out some where which machines have them?

It's the tow hook for the Gun Tractor, cargo steamers, etcetera.

OK, it's a hitch.

Tesla Cannon
Munitions Carrier
Flame Tank

Those make sense. But here's a pic of a Clamper Tank with a hitch. Is there a definitive list somewhere?

Thank's Cohort! Do you know of a list of what has them and what doesn't? Is the Clamper Tank from the big rule book a mistake?

Sorry for rambling, I'm a little excited about this system, if you can't tell! :-D

There is no list or rule saying what particular steam tanks you can put the hitch on so I would say any tank you want to pull something can have one. I've sprinkled them throughout my forces just because I can. 8)=
