Hey Erik, I think you need to help our RC tank fans a little more here in a better hint. As a suggestion, Maybe tell everyone were the drive sprocket is located (Front or Rear of tank). This would help them narrow it down just a little. Just an idea!!!!

Rivetcounter I like the way you think, but I doubt they will give us that exotic "Dicker Max". That would be to cool if they would!!!

HAHA that is probably the best thing I have seen on this forum besides that Pantiger with the flames.

Well, as much as I would like a Dicker Max, I believe it's based on a Panzer IV chassis. I want to believe it's the Sturer Emil OR the Maus.


Okay then, is it a non-turreted TD/SP Gun? Is it designed to take on other tanks or an infantry support tank?

...given that general 'shape' it could very easily be an SU-76.... yikes :P

Though likely not.. wasn't super good of a tank, isn't very big either...but who knows!!!

Hope it's not an SU-76. The Russians called it "Suka", roughly translated it sound like "itch" with a "B" in English. My lovely wife helped me with that one! She is Russian.

A T-34 based tank destroyer? Su-85/100?

Although, the same of the cloth does suggest a long barrel, a rear biased casemate superstructure with a significant flat frontal deck with a sloped glacis. Which is why I guessed the JagdPanther 2 in the first place.

A T34 based something would be very nice.... I highly doubt we would let the T34 chassis sit when we could use it for a few new platforms. Unfortunately, this is not one of them.
This item has very defining features so I did have to make it a bit loose. To be honest I thought it kinda looked like a Hetzer but the barrel is too center. Oh well, more soon. I'm just waiting for the bossman to come back online so I can get the go ahead to post another

I'm about an hour north of Tampa, though it is raining so bring an umbrella. Bossman is in NY though. I am the one with the item in question and I am the one with the pictures I have been playing with my sample all day just waiting lol.
