1/48 Ba-6 (UM)
Warning! This model kit allows you to create the „base“ of a dustified unit. It wasn’t produced by Dust Studio and can be more complicated or different quality than you are used to. It can only be a base to more „dustification“ with weapon spruces and model elements from the game itself, or will create a separate unit usable in the game. It’s made in 1/48 which is the scale used on all Dust 1947 models.
The BA-3 (Russian: Broneavtomobil 3) was a heavy armored car developed in the Soviet Union in 1933, followed by a slightly changed model BA-6 in 1936. Both were based mostly on BA-I, the most important development being the new turret, same as in the T-26 m 1933 and BT-5 tanks, and also equipped with the 45 mm main gun. Around 180 BA-3 cars were built at the Izhorskij and Vyksunskij factories, until production ended in 1935. BA-6 followed with 386 cars produced between 1936 and 1938 in Izhorskij factory. Most of BA-3 production was based on the Ford-Timken chassis, a 6×4 modification of the US Ford AA 4×2 truck, but the last batch was built on Russian version of the same chassis – GAZ-AAA, continued to be used in BA-6. The biggest limitation of the BA-3 was the mobility, limited to roads or very hard ground, the result of unnecessarily large weight. The innovation that slightly improved mobility were the auxiliary („Overall“) tracks that could be fitted onto the rear tandem wheels, converting the car to half-track.
This model kit can be a base for a Dust 1947 unit. After little conversion using Axis airborne Luftwaffe walkers flamethrower an Purifier armored car can be created.
The servants of the Mythos forces don’t have access to the latest military technology and vehicles available to the other Blocs. They do their best to steal some, but are often stuck with equipment from the last War. Nevertheless these can be quite deadly and still do the job beautifully. With its Flamethrower and Machinegun, the Purifier can take on any ground target on the battlefield.
In this set you will find a classic scale model set, recommended for experienced modelers. As the set is not a Dust Studio product the card for it can be found in Dust Enslist application.
