BP-44 Armoured Locomotive
« on: November 11, 2021, 02:08:23 AM »


The BP-44 was a WWII German armoured locomotive, used to propel mixed AA, anti-tank, artillery and infantry trains.

Germany didn't use armoured trains as much as others, such as the Soviet Union, but they did have some. Generally speaking, armoured trains tended to fall out of favour over the course of the war as road or tracked vehicles were more flexible and became ever more potent, and railway tracks were very vulnerable to sabotage and aerial attack.

This is a 1:100 scale model for 15mm gaming. It was designed by a chap called Tolawdjk, and came from Thingiverse.

I agree, even though I would find no use for it myself. :)
