Rommel Howitzer by LKY13 Rommel Howitzer by LKY13
Rommel Howitzer. Again for the Catalyst Prototypes TRO. Bring the rain! I love the Rommel Tank anyway, but adding a Howitzer was a ton of fun.

I do believe the phrase "warheads on foreheads" adequately describes what this beast is supposed to do.

It's an old US Air Force phrase I picked up years ago from some friends.

Instantly what I thought of. Although, it sounds even better attributing the saying to the Air Force.

Go take a look at howitzers and you will see that they traditionally have shorter barrels, due to the lack of a need for higher pressures and longer ranges. Howitzers bring the big bore to short range combat / demolition. Historically, they were not very effective against AFVs due to their inaccuracy and low muzzle velocity. Did just great against their intended targets - buildings and infantry (especially with the anti-personnel high explosive rounds).

This one looks like a long-range gun, an artillery piece. No one saw an issue with it over at CGL? Otherwise, I have no quibble and would love to commission a piece for my fan-made TRO [[link] However... it's nearly finished.

Yeah, I saw the art and said to myself, "Nice an artillery vehicle" thinking it had a thumper or something in it, then I read the stats. Still not a bad tank, but I'm not a fan of artillery cannons since they erattaed alternate munitions out.

Thank you! It has been a long haul and we still have a bit of data entry to go before I go in and begin boldface, italics and correcting the various errors we and others have found along the way. Four years, over $5000, but it should be what the fans like!

AND WITH THIS GUN, I SHALL SHOOT THAT IRRITATING MOON RIGHT OUT OF THE SKY!

That joke is my biggest issue with this design; the tank literally smaller than it's actual barrel, which makes the tank seem small and implausible.
