Very useful for fantasy WWII gaming.

Only half a dozen prototypes built, never saw service.

Oh, a Forged in Battle code. Had me wondering.

You would have thought that if they use the "M" designations for American armor that they might give the "A" designations for the British.

The Tortoise is the "A39."

Glad you like it my friend.

The only potential downside is the cast-on base. Some people don't like them.

I have a lot of FiB 'what-if' vehicles (6x E50s and ~24x Pz38 Katzchen APCs) for my Weird War Germans. They're pretty solid, though I'm adding bits from Heer46, Battlefront, and Eureka to them.

A guy in my gaming group may pick up a few of those Tortoises for his late-war Brits.

Only one per pack. How do I fill out my Troop?

More packs…? (smile)
