Canada does not have the industry that the Americans do, but they do have ingenuity. Having acquired a number of British made, “Protected Cruisers”, 2nd class, HMVS Naiad, HMVS Scylla, and HMVS Satona, they managed to convert a number of them into Land Monitors, in imitation of the Land Ironclads of the Americans.
The double armor is a great idea, especially since the space between could be filled with water to further reduce heat ray effectivness. Water is wonderful heat sink requiring a lot of energy to boil-off.
There was no backdoor at the Alamo. Planet Earth doesn't have one either.
Thank you both. My goal here was to provide a cool looking figure to the battle field that wasn't really overpowered. I had 3 of these beasties in my basement for another game system. I have to say their first outing (The Battle for Bruce Mines, currently being written) wasn't that impressive.
Japanese telephones work pretty much like ours, except the person on the other end can't understand you.
The problem with double armor filled with water is that water expands faster than steel when heated, and can cause an explosion. if there were a way to circulate water between the plates that would work better. Air is a good insulator, and the layer of trapped air would probably be better. Mineral wool mats might work. Of course, all this discourse is moot.
boxholder: I don't know. If this is supposed to be a chat-type thing, I don't see how it gets to that. There does not appear to be any way to tell someone that you are waiting or find someone on line. It takes a fortuitous discovery that both are on-site together.
