FAMH Char B Prototype

This reminds me of the tanks in the PS3 game Valkyria Chronicles – one of the purest, most enjoyable computer gaming experiences I’ve known.

There’s a dizzying array of Dieselpunk tanks in the game, which is set in an alternate historical c1930s Europe-that-never-was.

I’m reminded of all this because this Char B in this photo set has a large radiator on the back – at least that’s what I imagine it is. In Valkyria Chronicles, the tanks are powered by a mythical substance called ragnite, which glows blue and which can be seen in their exposed radiators:

Needless to say, this is each tank’s Achilles heel:

Rosie and Largo, my two favorite PCs:

Wicked fun game.

YAY Valkyria Chronicles! I wish the sequels were (a) in English, or (2) did not just take the name & leave all the good gameplay behind.
