Sherman Duplex Drive

This is a work in progress, much as the actual Duplex Drive tanks were that day 70 years ago when they hit the water just of Normandy on June 6th 1944. While the “Donald Ducks” had a disastrous time getting shore on Omaha beach that day. They actually faired much better on the other for beaches with the majority of tanks making it ashore. While they faced little resistance on Utah beach the British and Canadian forces found them quite handy, Without them it’s possible the infantry casualties along those beaches would have been as bad as those on Omaha.

Below you’ll find my art for the DD, as well as the initial HoN style token front. (I’ll have the back done up in a couple days.)

Expect to see a full squadron for the 70th Tank Battalion, who supported the 4th Infantry on Utah Beach, sometime this summer.

That is all.
