Give your Weird World War II tanks an upgrade with these new turrets…
As the war progresses front line mods and first stage weapons start to appear on the battlefield – and become a requirement to succeed in battle in an ever more advanced arms race. These options can be mounted on tanks or on bunkers to add extra defense.
Schwerefeld Projector – $20.00
The gravity manipulation weapons employed by Germany have the ability to alter localised gravity, crushing targets under their own weight, or rapidly altering the gravity in a small space. This can cause rapid failure of mechanical parts and the aftershocks can disrupt a target’s ability to operate for a significant time. The ability of the weapon’s energy field to manipulate gravity is linked to the target’s mass, making the weapon more effective against bigger and heavier targets. This has led to more of these weapons being employed on the Eastern Front than in the west, to counter the heavy Soviet walkers and tanks.
Tesla Cannon turret – $20.00
The Tesla Cannon directed energy weapons conceived and developed by Nikola Tesla have had an immediate impact on the battlefield. Even heavily-armoured vehicles are vulnerable to electricity and with a dispersion setting, squads of infantry can be attacked just as easily. Whilst relatively short ranged and bulky, they are effective against both vehicles and infantry, which makes them popular with the tank crews that use them. Tactically the glow of the Tesla Cannon’s coils makes ambushes and fighting at night difficult, but the psychological effect of the electrical arcs on enemy soldiers is worth the side effects.
