Hover tank in Rogue One was an Alvis Stormer



Good spot, in the film it appeared so massive, it looked like a Nakpadon!

I always found the Soviet assault guns to be really uninteresting and samey.  They're just a heavy tank chassis with a howitzer slapped in them.

This one is different, and a little more intriguing.  I suppose you could say it's a smaller bore.

What about SU-100P/152P and Object 416? and Obj.268/9?

Terrible vismods? Check.


Terrible movie? Check.





Good lord, I had not heard of this film before.  What a load of shit.  It's based on a book by Sven Hassel, so you know it's going to be crap.  Apparently, it's a ripoff of the Dirty Dozen, only German style.  The characters in the movie are from the  "The 27th Penal Panzer Regiment".  Now, I'm pretty sure there was no such thing as a Penal Panzer regiment.  The Germans did have penal battalions, but they certainly were not issued tanks.  Of course, the SS were happy to have criminals in their ranks.  But I suppose a movie about the Dirlewanger Brigade wouldn't make for a fun war film about plucky misfits on a secret mission behind enemy lines.
