Welcome to AGSH. A wargaming blog dedicated to my Dad and the world's most noble hobby; collecting toy soldiers. Here toy soldiers clash in great battles from scales of 3mm to 54mm. Also the historical records of the imaginary states of the 6mm Republic of Prussia, the Kingdom of Aksum, the Principality of Huack, the Khedivate of Turkoslavia and the Duchy of Saxe-Huack.

PDF Set to Build First Tank

Today the Prussian Defense Force announces plans to manufacture the first combat vehicle for urban warfare use. Colonel Albert Brendel head of the PDF Engineers Corps said "We expect to roll out our first tank in the next 6 months." The project name of the tank is Panzer 8. Our forces serving under allied Russian command in Chechnya have repeatedly demanded an small combat vehicle that can fight in urban terrain and out. PDF engineers have come up with a light tank design that can be crewed by 3 troopers, has a top speed of 120 km per hour and can offer field commanders a nice strike package with light and heavy machine guns and a 40mm gun. While urban warfare is not exactly the tanker's dream, many future battles will no doubt take place in an urban environment. The force value of a tank cannot be underestimated in an urban setting in which a commander needs all available combat elements to complete his mission while keeping casualties low This urban warfare tank will become an indispensable tool in our arsenal of freedom.
