And it has two of them.  :cry:


And they aren't droopy!

Props to you Apollyon, this might be my favorite STD I've seen on these forums.

To be fair, Apollyon's STD's main guns don't move up and down, an essential feature on most tanks. If I had just nailed my gun to the turret with bricks instead of a click hinge I could have made it longer too.

This really starts to sound like a penis-size competition.

(Also, for me, this is the only acceptable kind of penis to post on these forums.)

It actually reminds me of when everyone was making those goddamn super-dreadnought microspace ships.  The more of these STDs I see the less impressed by them I am.

I don't mind them really, but I always misread them as STD-s *awk-waaard*

Currently they do not. The secondary guns used to but then they had to be placed way too high and i decided that a lower profile was more important to me.

Yes, put there temorarily to counterbalance the weight of the main gun. Felt good to find an actual use for that thing. :-) And i might keep it there (concealed).

Did anybody just say Piltogg tank?

Actually it is not a piltogg symbol per se. The iron cross has been used by Germans ever since the 12th century and is still used today as the national emblem by the Bundeswehr.

I agree, it's okay because it also used to be the symbol of the genocidal Teutonic knights.
