Design Notes -This is an update of this luxury: Luxury, Xhvy Ch., Hvy Sus., Super PP, 4 SD tires, driver & gunner, 2 linked ATG front, MD back, 2 SWC; 150 pts armor: F30 R30 L30 B30 T15 U15; Acc. 5, HC 3; 6600 lbs, $17,850

As with all ATG, once you pop in APFSDS they become real rockin' and rollin,'  And although I think gunners are good gaming sense, but in this case the CA is more important.  Except I found out that the new 1/3 rules make linked ATGs impossible in a lux' when you're sloped or if they have CA.   I started the upgrade on Aug 22, 2007 but didn't finish it 'til now.

Even though the original was Div18, I don't see how to reduce this down to 18, let alone 15.  Because of the 1/3 rule, I can't slope the armor, or CA the ATG (to make 'em safer), hence the FE/IFE options.

Name Notes -Nosferatu is the name of a still-creepy 1920s vampire film (the word seems to be the original Romanian word for vampire).
