Battlefront walks on the wild side with the release of rules for lots of experimental tanks and other armored vehicles for Flames of War.

From them to you:

In our research we have uncovered lots of really interesting experimental tanks. Some were just designs that were never completed. Others were completed as prototypes, and some even saw small-scale field testing!

These tanks were weird and wonderful, ranging from a 100-ton monster and a First World War relic, to a tank with two side-by-side main guns, an armoured car weighing more than a tank, and a machine-gun armed light tank with the armour of a heavy tank!

We wanted to try them all out to see how they might have performed if they had actually been built, so we decided to write some briefings for them, just for the fun of it!

    Exactly my thoughs.

    Hopefully they did not change so much that my old copy becomes obsolete.

    BTW:
    I was really hoping for L – Latewar Leviathans, or E – Earlywar Eeries, instead of a rerelease of M.

      PS: Just realized they released the rules as free pdfs, which is not immediately clear if you just read that announcement. They also made the tanks available again.

      In that regard, I am all for it. Good move. Now on to Barbarossa, Pacific and Götterdämmerung.
