SSU Week: The KV 47 Pack

As much as I love my Ludwig, I’m even a fan of Mickey, there has always been a special place in my heart for the little KV 47s.


Program notes:

Combined Shots:

This skill is available to some vehicles with two Flamethrowers. Instead of firing separately, the vehicle can combine the two shots into one. Rather than rolling combat dice for each weapon individually, the player rolls combat dice for only one of the weapons but the range is extended one.


If you’re a long time fan of the Dust universe then you’ll know that the KV 47 has been around for a while, and even appeared in the Risk like Dust Strategy Game (2007).

(As always click to enlarge.)

I’m waiting for the ballistic missile drop pod version of the KV 47 to appear in DT, but I know it’s a long shot. The KV 47 was also one of the first 1:35 scale models available from Dust Models.

For those of you interested in a little more info on the good ol’ 47, check out the images below. These are pretty old and much like the Axis Luther some names have changed. (Originally the KV 47 B “Natasha” was known as a “Koshka" named for the hero Koshka.)

Also we have the stun baton armed OMOH (Otryad Mobilinii Osobovo Naznacheniya, Special Purpose Mobile Unit) police model 47.

Don’t get your hopes up to see this model in DT as the real OMOH was not formed until 1979.
