The First Bundeswehr Overwatch

Postby Valiant » Thu Apr 07, 2016 5:17 pm

Here we go :D

Image
Here's the current lineup of the Federal Republik of Germeny! I'll post a new Overwatch pic here once I finish modding the Jackson and the Cougar AFV.

Image
Standard Shok Troopers.

Image
(From the left) Two Panzergrenadiers, three specialists and two vehicle crewmen.

Image
The two Mediks.

Image
The Cougar prototype armed with four 6-stud long TOW missiles.

Image
And last but not least, the M2A1 Jackson; modified to the Bundeswehr's specs.

Image
A parting photo, with Colonel Querin leading the charge.

That's all for now boys and girls!
Cheers,

Valiant

"Cougar prototype"
But yeah, you've got a point :D
Also, the missiles are an armament option that can be easily switched out.

.50 cal machine gun turret, .50 cal SPAAG(Self Propelled Anti Aircraft Gun) turret, Reconnaissance (carries two Panzergrenediers and a .30 cal point-defence gun) and of course the TOW Tank Hunter variant.

looks like a good loadout variation. but you might want to lower the TOW it looks higher than your MBT so it wouldn't be able to shoot lower targets....

The advantage of TOW is that the missiles are wire guided, so while one still requires a visual line of sight, the tubes don't need to be pointed directly at the target (the firing arc can be 1-3 fingers wide depending on the range; ie. 1 finger for 10", 2 for 20", etc).

Peaches and yellows together? Time for genocide.

In all seriousness, this is pretty cool, especially the vehicles.

Might change it to that; however, both have their pros and cons.

Perhaps equip the specialist that does not have anything with a laser pointer so she can designate targets?

I was building a 45th Union ODST type troop that looks very similar to your shock troopers. Your design is better.

Oh man I haven't even gotten that far yet--I was just going for a bulky, special infantry type look.
