Hi Folks,

This won't progress with any great frequency (i have too many other things on in my life to be drawing pixel art every other day), but hopefully this goes a way to (in time) adding some meat to my AU.

First off the list - WW2 Indigenous-developed Armour.
DCFI's Armour development story i will add as a document later; but for now these are the four separate development strands realised and which saw service for the Falklands in WW2.

Armoured Vehicle - Scout (AV-S) known as 'Pathfinder'
[ img ]

AV-I (infantry) FA10 'Mallard'
[ img ]

M-34 Lend-Lease Medium Tank
[ img ]

AV-M (Medium) known as 'Thunderer'
[ img ]

AV-H/I (Heavy) 'Hercules'
[ img ]

AV-T Main Battle Tank - 'Cavalier'
[ img ]

AV-L (Light) 'Sentinel'
[ img ]

Edit: Updated M34 26/07/2017

Hi, are you planning to post only FD scale stuff on this thread?

Looks okay, but why would the Falklands develop their own armour? They barely have room for the factory, let alone a test range.

Answers to questions...

Gollevainen: yes

Thiel: Mainly because it's my AU and i want it to have a capable and 'home grown' military - there is more than enough 'credible' justification in the history of this AU (currently being written) which i will post for all to wonder in once it's at a sufficiently complete stage. I will also add abbreviated histories for the individual designs posted here in due course.

ill move this to the FD section then, it is the place where FD related AU threads should be posted.

And nice designs BTW, those tanks look quite plausible things

Surely DP should be credited for the modified Valentine?

Interesting that you chose a 50mm instead of a 6 pr

There's a story behind that - suffice it to say for now that DCFI lost faith in British tank and Gunnery design until somebody came up with the 17pdr. In the interim, espionage activities in Germany and defectors from Soviet Union helped inform indigenous Tank and Gunnery development, resulting in DCFI analogues to nazi guns such as the 37mm, 50mm and 75mm.
