Way back in the mists of time (April), we released two new 15mm vehicles – the Eisenfaust (Iron Fist) laser tank and the Kastenwagen (box van) platoon APC. These have now both been translated down to 6mm, and are available on the website today.
The Eisenfaust is a large blower tank equipped with a heavy turreted laser and a secondary autocannon in a ball mount on the glacis plate. It’s protected by a sandwich of sapphire and alloy armour, with an explosive close-in defence belt around the hull. The vehicle floats on a cushion of air provided by six turbine fans on the hull top.
The Pz441 Kastenwagen carries a full platoon of 24 infantry in its capacious rear compartment. Access is via two large side doors which drop down to form ramps and allow the infantry to disembark very rapidly (possibly because they would be sitting ducks if they remained in the now open troop compartment !). Armament consists of the same autocannon as the Eisenfaust, mounted on the roof of the driver’s cab.
