Gtx  changing the tire on a dually is just the same as any another truck except there are two wheels on it, no hard at all.

Between the 1/350th and 1/700th, this screams Wargaming High Adventure

Tangentially, some fiction where the Imperial Germans were the good guys would be a refreshing read.

Interesting in that it seems that the Germans are both the good guys AND the bad guys. :-\

Hmmm...post-apocalyptic version after it has fired all its missiles and is operating as a pirate?

Or maybe a Chinese one...or a civilian version with the missiles replaced by a passenger compartment...or a bunch of cargo containers....or....

Trying to find a non-Facebook image, but I'm seeing the M114A1 and M114A1E1 CRV being announced.  No release date, just box art, but I want at least one of each as a base kit to WhIf-itize.

Facebook link for those that dare:
