Yes, I agree.

I'll drop this here.

I just noticed that in the Battle Box Rules (Page 26, on both PDF and printed versions), on the SHVY record sheet, the text says 2 AP, yet the artwork shows four check boxes.

That is the miniatures version of the SHVY after conversion to inches . . .

Sorry for being a wise *ss. That looks like a good observation.

I was thinking it was just the marketing materials to sell the SHVY as being more powerful than it really is... :P

That's what we need, a more-powerful SHVY.

Oh, I totally agree. But can't you just see whoever was building the original SHVY doing a dog-and-pony show for the brass, showing that picture and saying, "It's our answer to the Mark I. We added a second main gun to compensate for the lack of AI, which should make up for those deficiencies." And then later, when it actually goes into production, "Well, it turns out that we really needed a full AI to handle that many guns, so we had to strip off 2 of the AP to make it all work..." :)

What nobody knows is that the project that ended up as the SHVY started as a GEV-PC sometime prior to the Battle of Montreal.

I don't even have to look at that clip to know it's from Pentagon Wars. :D

Same here, ColBosch!

My regular Ogre opponent worked for FMC at that time -- he says if you mentioned that movie at work, bad things happened to your career.
