Spraying fire is mandatory.I'd think bounding first fire from that jalopy would be more than halved. imagine pedaling toward the enemy, steering with one hand and firing with the other
i wonder if that would stop the quadricycle from the recoil without a need of a stop MP
@footsteps - we need a counter for that MG armed quadricycle!!!!
The attire of this vehicle's operator and the fact that is not being ridden by a uniformed soldier could be an indication of both this contraption's design philosophy and the probability of it ever being adopted for service.
The Gentlemens solution to labor unrest? they called it "The Strike Breaker."The attire of this vehicle's operator and the fact that is not being ridden by a uniformed soldier could be an indication of both this contraption's design philosophy and the probability of it ever being adopted for service.
Not directly related to Soviet colors...but as I understand it...and Paul will correct me...when crews repainted their vehicles say from winter white wash...to "summer"...the mixed pigment with "thinner" in the field and sprayed it on...so how one crew mixed this (given materials) vs another crews is a moveable feast...where as at the shop coming off the line..there is more of a paint guru...and better ratios of tint to thinner...likely better compressor and air brush specialist etc...Notice the 2 "patches" just below the turret roof line, clearly the kids wrecked it at least once. The patch at the base (under the vision block and pistol port) is standard though.
As for colour, the Soviets used green shades that were much brighter than what we might be used to on military vehicles in the West. Their WW2 aircraft green was quite bilious. I suppose one way to look at it is that the Soviets tried to match the green of daylit grass or trees rather than the shades that matched vegetation in shadow.
