!prototype 2


SOMUA CAM 2, September 1937. In this configuration, the machine and built
The scheme of reservation, is interesting because here the instrument is shown in the stowed position
The prototype SOMUA CAM 2 in the factory yard, the beginning of 1938. Neither guns nor turrets have no car
It is clearly seen that the car was based (with some nuances) on the design of the SOMUA S 35
The need to accommodate 5 crew members influenced the form as the turret boxes and the roof of the engine compartment
Fully equipped with SOMUA SAu 40
This gun caliber 47 mm was supposed to be in production machines
The final combat career, surrendered to the Germans car in the vicinity of Perigueux, Aquitaine, in June 1940
The Canon Automoteur de 16 livres sur SOMUA chassis, the latest attempt to make SOMUA S 35 tank destroyer
Theoretically, the 17-pounder gun crawled

Photograph of KV-5 prototype “Победа” shortly before it tipped over and exploded during pre-production trials, 1943. After the German seizure of Leningrad and subsequent two-pronged advance toward Moscow, Soviet industry went into overdrive, creating increasingly bizarre stopgaps as supplies of raw materials began to dry up.

The KV-5 was one of these. Intended to be a mobile artillery battery, it instead proved to be a massive failure. The first prototype, shown here, fell over during maneuver testing. Poor design of the ammunition storage racks caused the vehicle to explode, killing the crew as well as the photographer.

The second KV-5, “Родина” survived maneuver testing, but the recoil of the upper main guns broke the turret in half during weapons testing. By that time, 50 KV-5s had already been produced. Most saw success, laid on their sides, as roadblocks during the 1945 Battle of Moscow.

Just want to show you guys a snippet of a project i’m doing for fun

you know how at the end of prototype during the credits, theres a radio broadcast about how the people of new york are grateful to be saved and that the city is slowly recovering? and then there a rather bittersweet and VERY ironic speech by a government official about how the marines and america stopped the infection and saved the city, and will fight the bio-terrorists?

and all the while youre greeted with visuals of the aforementioned bio-terrorist, (the true savior of the city) watching from the shadows, and possibly the only person left (besides you, the player) who knows what the military did and was willing to do to new york, while a piano reprisal of his theme plays, and then after the credits he says,  “three weeks, one virus, millions dead, and i was there. my name was alex mercer, and my work is almost done” ?? it kinda seems like he’s becoming a hero right??
