This is all about those "targets" that shoot back! Ever since the entry of aircraft onto the battle field, the ground forces have always tried to protect themselves by removing this threat by shooting them down. First guns, then missles. As tactics developed the need to be able to rapidly deploy AA protection and protect mobile forces, those guns became mounted to anything that would move leading to the developement of specialized AA vehicles. We will document and celebrate these highly important, but often overlooked vehicles through our models.
The Rules and Regs
To complete this mission, your build must be self-propelled, in that it requires no other vehicles, forces, etc to alow it to move---so a raft mounted 2cm flak does not quailify (requires river current or tug boat). It also must have weapons that are meant to shoot down aircraft, either guns (such as a M42 Duster) or missles (such as a SA-6 or M6 Linebacker). Conversions, "paper" projects, prototypes are all ok.
At least one picture must be posted in gallery by the end date. In progress build shots are not required, but encouraged within the campaign thread!
Lastly, have loads of fun!
One award will be given to each participate for the completion of at least one model posted in the gallery.
