T-34/85

The WSD acquired a Heng Long 1/16 scale T-34/85.  It’s done up in winter whitewash camo.  Preliminary testing has shown that it does very well in snow.  That could be a big advantage here in the Rockies, we have lots of snow.  It is currently a stock Airsoft tank, and will be used as a “trainer tank” to help train new tank drivers, but it could be converted into an IR battle tank in the future.

We named it “Ghost”.  There is a small flaw in the plastic of the turret that looks like a panzerfaust hit.  Whitewashed the day after the crew and tank survived the panzerfaust hit in a late fall battle, the loader who was painting the tank, named it Ghost. IMG_9048IMG_9044IMG_9037IMG_9027
