All Quiet on the Martian Front: Neue Previews
Es dauert noch eine Weile bis zum Kickstarter, aber Alien Dungeon zeigen mal wieder neue Previews.
The date for our Martian Front Kickstarter was supposed to be in this press release. Sorry, but no exact date yet. We are now targeting Mid April. The response has been so strong that we are now scrambling to make the initial line launch bigger: More product and more reveals. Please bear with us. Your response has been inspiring and we want to get this as right as we can. We have provided an extra long preview for you this time around! More information can always be found here at a website we created just for All Quiet on the Martian Front:
A truly lumbering beast of a machine, the Mark IV chassis has only been on the Front the last few months. This picture shows the Monitor Version packing no less than six 15 pound guns, a twin machine gun on a turret cupola, and a massive “anti-tripod” main gun. This is one of the first “turreted” vehicles. The original design was a hand cranked turret, but it was so slow to traverse, one of the new Westinghouse motors was soon installed. The main gun is very large and has a side breach, yet the very rear of the gun still sticks out the turret. When the gun is fired, it actually recoils through the turret itself. While it sports many guns, ammunition supply is scant, as even with its massive size, there is little interior room left. To save space, the side rods are outside the track sponsons for the front drive wheel. The tracks are driven by powered wheels both front and back. This tricky design problem was ultimately resolved with the help of Ephraim Shay, who invented an all new drive system for it. The Mark IV chassis in many of its configurations also lacks range, due to the small size of its water tank. Some vehicles have been equipped with towed water tenders to extend their range. The maximum speed of the heavily armored Monitor version is 7 miles per hour.
