Sonderkraftfahrzeug 234/4 "Pakwagen"

by   40.7k PhantomBladeCorp  8 months ago

Known for pwning literally anything at BR 3.0. Unsuspecting ruski bias tenks are usually what it feeds off of.

Special thanks to RussianAS for providing the absolutely awesome ZG 1229 on this bad boy! The amount of detail he put into it was so much that I actually had to remove some of it :)

Controls

Pitch and Roll to start moving around and scare little ruski tenk))))
VTOL+Trim to start threatening dem noobs (elevates/rotates the gun along with its shield).
AG 1 to light up the darky scary night (activates both sets of lights >> hull and night-vision device).

Surprisingly, for such an old tin can, it has outstanding off-road performance. Also, the suspension design allows you to fall from unbelievably high places. Behaves much like the real thing.

Short history

The Sonderkraftfahrzeug 234/4 (literally meaning "special purpose machine") was the last modification of the Sd. Kfz. 234 chassis and the second most famous after the 234/2, also known as "Puma". Designated as a Schwere Panzerspahwagen (heavy reconnaissance armored car), the 234/4 was an attempt to upgun the 234/1 which used a short-barreled 75 mm gun. The "Pakwagen" (as the 234/4 would be later nicknamed) featured a 75 mm PaK 40 L/46 gun but, at the same time, suffered from reliability issues. The suspension, in particular, was stretched to its limits.

Being an open-topped vehicle, the commander had a great field of view. Much like most late-war vehicles, the Pakwagen was also fitted, most of the time, with the ZG 1229 "Vampir" night-vision system, thus allowing for night operations.

Only 89 were built in total starting from December 1944 until most armor production was halted in March 1945. Very little data exists about its combat use.

    The only thing this doesn't feed off of is the sound of the Wolverine howling.

    @JakeTheDogg No it should be an 800mm L/1000 gun. Has no recoil at all and weighs less than this crappy 75mm so it should work fine.
