FHSW ver0.2α "6pdr Automatic Molins" Preview

One of the best British tanks is the Sp 6 Pdr Molins what stands for Self-Propelled 6 Pounder Molins and it is referred in FHSW as a Tank Destroyer. It looks like the Cromwell, but its not the Cromwell. It got the Christie suspension Cromwell chassis with a modified Cromwell turret. The main armament was a 57mm 6 Pounder gun with the Molins power loading system know as the 6 Pounder Molins. The Royal Navy used the 6-pounder extensively in Motor Gunboats during World War II (especially the 'D' type). The gun was mounted on a hydraulic powered mount and fitted with the Molins power loading system, permitting a 6-round burst at 1 round per second. The guns were all the early short-barrel (43 calibre) type, and fired exclusively HE ammunition, at much lower muzzle velocities than for AP. The Molins autoloader was also deployed for a short time on some Royal Air Force Mosquito FB Mk XVIII "Tsetse" planes. But also on ground vehicles like the Deerhound ATAC and on a Cromwell chassis what becomes the Sp 6 Pdr Molins. The secondary armament was a 7.92 mm Besa machine gun in the hull. There was no coxiale machinegun or any other armament. With a speed around 64 km/h, 76mm arour, a stockage in the hull and turret with 67 rounds and a bloody 6 pounder gun with a Molins power loading system that give the gun a firing rate about 55 rounds, make this vehicle a perfect tank destroyer! But is it be able to desgtroy a Königstiger?

We have not more information about this tank, but we got two movies to share you. The first is the tank in the mod, presented by the FHSW dev team on April 24, 2007. The second is a short test footage or the real gun presented by Historic Channel.
