I like this approach to supply gathering, if you're gonna do a blitzkrieg you need to keep moving and a mobile supply base sounds perfect.

Looks great, but it really doesn't like the germans to make something this big unarmed, so you should consider adding at least a few machineguns

SdKfz 350 Eichhörnchen: the SdKfz 350 was the third generation of mobile supply carriers (MSC) developed by Adam Opel AG for a 1978 Wehrmacht requirement for the replacement of all then current supply carriers. The new MSC must have an on-site supply processing plant as well as a drone hanger for the supply gathers. The prototype was field tested in January 4, 1982 and the first production units were issued in May of 1984. While unarmed, the Eichhörnchen is heavily armored, with armor up to 200mm of composite materials (including ceramics, Fused silica, rolled homogeneous steel, and reinforced concrete) in some places. The 200 ton vehicle is powered by four RHI Ka-424b V24T motors; one mounted on each track nacelle, the SdKfz 350 can reach up to 21km/h under ideal conditions. The hanger can house up to eight drones, though during emergencies the number can be increased. Unusually for an armored military vehicle, the driving compartment was mounted near the rear of the vehicle on an armor tower, much like most oil tankers and container ships. The entire front of the vehicle (where the drones drop off supplies) is composed of a large container like space with a converter belt to move the supplies inward for further processing. Though very tough and efficient, the Eichhörnchen does not come cheap, and should be protected at all cost due to its critical role on the modern battlefield.

Description

This behemoth is Germany's supply carrier. It will deploy drones that bring supplies to the carrier. There will be no need to build a supply centre structure for the player. It is unarmed.
