Default Does anyone build artillery pieces for IR combat?

I mean like a GMC 12 or something. I think it would be cool in exchange for a camera and scope mounted, you would lose 45 degree armor and lose a turret for a foward facing gun that can only move 35 degrres left and right.(+up down). So, does anyone know suitable conversions or make anything like this???

That's the M-12 King Kong...155 mm, WW II. That shouldn't be too big of a project for modelling. A basic Mato chassis could be used, but the rest would have to be scratch made. The tranny cover would have to be modified to look like the 3 piece tranny. Styrene tubes for the gun. One batle in ETO, enemy was within 300 yds and the 155mms were depressed and fired point blank....so not all were strictly long range artillery. ...interesting idea for a modelling project.[:-] An M-7 Priest could also be made using the same chassis.
