A Pzf IV Siegmunde and a Stug III cross a snowy field, counting on winter weather to shroud them from airborne enemies. Siegmunde carries the "Iron Cross": a quad 20mm PzFK 38 L/55 Cannon, designed for anti-aircraft use, but highly effective against infantry and light vehicles. Some resourceful or perhaps very desperate engineers have fashioned him a club from the ruptured 88mm cannon of a Tiger tank. The club interior is reinforced w/ coiled steel cable and frozen mud.
Siegmunde would ideally be carrying heavier weapons to take on enemy armor, but had to scrounge whatever was available after endless days of desperate battle. Feldgrau paint schemes also not ideal for winter campaigns. Nothing had gone as planned...
Another epic OPDS collab w/
who modeled the Sig and Stug for me in Sketchup. Thank you, Thomas! This was a looong time in the works from my end.

In reality, AFVs should not cross open ground so close together, but.... you know, aesthetic considerations.
