[GBW] – Troop Movement - Erotema – Siluro a lenta corsa (manned torpedo)

Recommended Posts

Grid D10 (STUDICA) – Q10 (WORLD)

The Italian Regia Marina (Italian Navy of WW2) developed the use of combat divers. One of the most iconic vehicles was the Maiale (“pig” in Italian), whose name was “Siluro a Lenta Corsa” (slow speed torpedo). Three of these vehicles attacked the Royal Navy in Alexandria (Egypt) and 4 Britsh ships (2 battleships) were damaged.[/img]

As an evolution of this vehicle, the Erotema Navy has developed an advanced version. It can carry three limpet mines on the bottom (2x2 round plates) and some tools on the bow. Its cruise speed is 10 knots and has a range of 30 miles at that speed.

This vehicle is part of a detachment that will strike a Xenor site that is suspect to hold WMD.

Enjoy the build!

Judges’ comments…

This build would have been better presented as a Lord of War post as it just showcases a vehicle that you state will be used in a future post. As for the sub itself, it's nicely done and looks practical and realistic. The weapon placements look like they might get a little bit awkward. Overall, this a decent small build.     

Very basic build here.  Be sure to not block out your light source when you go in for close up pics.  I think this build was way too simple for what you have demonstrated so far in this game and feels a bit like a point grab attempt.  Your simple sea floor is just that, a simple display base.  spruce it up!  Add some other stuff on the floor, add some variation in terrain, and a few plants or rocks, the ocean floor ain't smooth!  I think these details, although more a part of the base, would have shown that even this is a simplistic build, you put time in on this and that would demonstrate.

Be Sure to Update Your AARs. 

Thanks for playing!
