The point I made in the write-up of HP on my website re the German artillery piece was that MMP was now printing game pieces and Chapter H rules for mere prototypes and singleton AFVs while there are still major gaps in the OBs--with AFVs or weapons that numbered in the hundreds or even thousands that still were not represented in ASL even after more than 30 years. I think it is very reasonable to make sure all the major AFVs and Guns are represented in ASL before spending time and effort on prototype weapons that were never a factor on the battlefield.

Leave the rares and protypes to World of Tanks.

I would love β€πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ–€πŸ’– to see your list of AFV/Guns that need to be included!

I have my reasons... πŸ˜‡

Nonsense. We need the MMP Maus.

Enh...wanna buy my collection?

I'll make you a sweetheart deal because you're you and because you'll enjoy the defaced IIFTs. ;)
Oh I gotsted more kit than you...and I have the IIFT memorized, something dinosaurs like myself can do, unlike you youngsters that need a screen of what ever type to find your way...paper trails help build memory skills, bits and bites do not... ;)

Just to re-iterate, Mark, I'm truly interested in a list of AFV/Guns/SW which should be included in ASL (but aren't).

The FlaK 38/39 will hardly ever show up in the ASL battlefield. Unless we are going to introduce B-17s and have strategic bombing CGs. And in that case I'd rather see effort expended on the Battle of the Atlantic instead.

As the war progressed into Germany, the Flak 38/39 did get used for AT duties, similar to the 88. I made the sample as direct response to Mark's HP review on DM where he referenced the Flak 38/39.

There are a few cases. Some were covered in Time on Target. They are not typical. I don't object to anyone producing such a counter, including MMP, but it is not one that needs to be produced. As it turned out the FlaK 38 & FlaK 39 were really heavy and so difficult to use in a field army. Most were put on static mounts. A few were mounted on railroad cars, but still to be used against bombers.

Hence the *NM.

What I'm really interested in is what other AFV/Guns was Mark thinking about.

There was also the 12.8 cm FlaK 40, used only in static and rail mountings. About 30-40 of the 26 tonne twin and 1100 of the 17 tonne single versions were produced. Used to arm the Berlin FlaK towers. Definitely NM in ASL terms.

In comparison about 4000 of the 10 tonne 10.5 cm FlaK 38/39 were produced.

While the 10.5 cm was not considered enough of an improvement over the 8.8 cm, the 12.8 cm seems to have been regarded highly.

MMP pretty stubbornly doesn't do what ifs and I believe only CH is covering more recent eras..the two wars in Nam, the Algerian insurrection, all three Arab Israeli wars, and soon Fallujah. MMP needs to concentrate on the niche they have restricted themselves to, historically employed weapons.
