Type-43/44 by Pyrosity Type-43/44 by Pyrosity
Updated design of what I was originally referring to as the "Type-34". Takes inspiration from the Russian T-34 and American M551 Sheridan.

Been wanting to spend some time on this one for awhile now. Don't really have time to flesh it out as much as I would like (wanted to draw up a ton of the variant vehicles), but decided to throw down some basic colors and post the basic two models.

Roof-mounted AA? What are they going to shoot down with that, a biplane? I'd've gone for a modified turret and turned it into a full-blown mobile battery, but I'm a fan of overkill, lol.

That aside, solid design! I very much enjoy the Koshyan and its descendent. Hooray tanks!

Thank you :3

Roof AAMGs are fairly common on tanks; beats having nothing when you're under helicopter attack, 'cause that coaxial isn't gonna do you much good if it can't elevate high enough :) This MG seen here is very similar to the DShK.

That said, it's certainly not purpose-built for that job. However, as the tank was very widespread and had a reliable chassis, there would certainly be variants of it with several linked guns/cannons for anti-aircraft use.

You know that's a fairly good point-Whenever I heard 'roof mounted' I always pictured their efficacy against fighters. I suppose it's because I'm a WWII nut! Very well then, I accept it's anti-helicopter effectiveness as justification for it. Still not as cool as an AA battery though! I can imagine war being what it is a dedicated battery isn't always available when you need one.

It is the primary symbol Koshya uses for vehicle markings.
