Hey there, I thought you might be interested in these videos about US Korean War and Vietnam War era body armour.
Say @RyujinDX I was wondering, have you heard of the Heckler & Koch HK32 assault rifle design and how it started from the German StG 45(M) => French CEAM Modèle 1950 => Spanish CETME rifles => German Heckler & Koch G3-derived series of rifles/SMGs/machine guns?
Fictional HK32-M (ArtStation 3D modelling) based on the historical HK32 with some parts from the HK G3 and the PTR version.
The HK32 assault rifle interested me as it was chambered for the AK-47/AKM 7.62x39mm round. That made me wonder about an idea for your dieselpunk-themed soldier pics. Basically, what if we have a fictional HK32 assault rifle variant chambered for the StG 44/StG 45(M) 7.92x33mm Kurz round?
I thought that idea could be a welcome change from the overused StG 44 assault rifle in dieselpunk-themed soldier pics inspired by WW2 Germany.
Thank you for replying. Is it ok to share the general ideas/themes I'm currently interested in? This includes some of your pics that sparked my interest in the first place and are still among my favourite references.
