yea, I know, there is much snow in the picture. Its for demonstrating reasons. ;) The next version will feature much better winterizing for the original relic maps, without touching them or any need to download. This one was actually taken in Lyon.

historical reasons. The Ostwind was not in service by the time of the Ardennes Offensive. Only one prototype was assigned to the 1st SS Panzerdivision. That one may show up...but the Ostwind wont be constructable anymore.

The Mobel skin looks great, and i can't believe that's Lyon!!!

Say... i've got a piano that needs moving, you think they could help? ;)

is it the piano in Lorraine? ;)

The trick itself is simple, but turns out as quite a bunch of work, to make all maps look good in BotB.

IIRC didn't the Möbelwagen have a 30mm Flak 43 gun on it, instead of the common 20mm Flak 38?

Still, all I have to say to that is: OW.

Ok, I found an article about it on Achtung Panzer, and I forgot to mention that it's spelled Möbelwagen, not Moebelwagen: Achtungpanzer.com

Apparently the experimental Möbelwagen had the 2cm Flak 38 (the quad, not the single gun), while the Production version had the 3.7cm Flak 43 on it. Any chance of seeing an experimental version of it, out of curiosity?

Also, any chance of building a static Flak 43?

Doom, I don't think there are, I think they just added the snow effect to the vanilla Relic maps.

And what is that map called again? It's been a while since I've played COH. Isn't it called Lyon or something like that?

its Lyon, exactly. And you are right about the Moebel, the experimental version had the 2cm Quad ,and the production the 37mm Flak 43. As seen in the pic.

So this is Lyon? You transformed the whole map with those winter effects! Nothing better than fighting on frozen battlefield :D

Hmm, a quick q, could Tankdestroyer perhaps work his magic on this model too and give it a larger crew, like he did with the M15 GMC? :)
As it stands, the gun platform seems rather vacant.

I would love that, too, but TD is very busy with his RL, so no chance yet. :-/ I am more than happy if he finishes the Sturmtiger. ;)

Description

The Moebelwagen was the first tryout of equipping the Panzerdivision with AA Tanks. The Armour flaps had to be released to fire.
No good news for you players, this one will replace the Ostwind Flakpanzer. Anyway, the Flak 43 will still be a mower.

Model by DmZ, Animated by Eliwood. Skin by me. Many thx to Xalibur for bringing this into the game.
