    :face_with_rolling_eyes:Is everyone OK with the fact that this "feuerbach" is based on the rifle platform? Same mag, stock, grips, same but extended "upper receiver"...

    If that is true, that's another "Aquila Panzerfaust"-grade fuckup

    I'm not, but I'm reserving my judgement until we'll get some better pics.

    Yeah, I hope it's a mistake. I mean we've seen pics with incorrectly listed weapons and even factions.
    (but we can also see Aquilas on our shelves)

    Yeah, if some weapons like panzerfaust and chain rifles are same in different armies. WTF is this mega combi rifle?

    Doesn't look like the Feuerbach that Aleph uses, or the one that Haqq uses.

    Also: Tactical tripping hazard/ammo case.

    They keep harping on the ORC Feuerbach profile, so I would be extremely surprised if it weren't accurate.

    That said, yeah...this is another Aquila Panzerfaust it looks like. PanO are the ones producing Feuerbachs and they're the same in ALEPH and Haqqislam yet somehow ours looks wildly different.

    Well, it could be that FGA makes a different model for PanO... after all, the Uhlan has a different Feuerbach to Teucer’s.

    Talking to a special forces buddy, we thought that it looked a lot like a recoilless rifle.

    It actually fits in line with the PanO tech ethos. Instead of a clunky shoulder-mounted rail system, you basically get a high-powered rifle. The barrel length looks equivalent to other fuerbachs, but the smaller ammunition and rifle-style ergonomics would be a vast improvement on this model.

    May see double duty as a Swiss missile launcher...

    That is a sweet Orc model with easy to remove universal all environment tactical junk.

    Literally stoked over here. FML if they don't rework the Orc Profile to be useable.

    @daboarder as much as I love the Tik, he has Jungle Terrain and I really want that Stingray..... so probably not gonna be in Varuna.

    What's the issue here? Why can't a feuerbach be a massive rifle-shaped piece?

    No reason it can't be. PanO's take on the Fuerbach as being the mother of all rifles is a cool concept.

    So instead of the huge clunky shoulder launcher they sell to foreign powers, they use the ergonomically efficient option with lightweight ammo for themselves. Makes sense to me.

    Magisters are equipped by the Church, and they don't want to pay for proper PanO stuff but instead buy cheap Ariadna stuff. :-P

    That's why the have AVA:Total on TO stuff ?;P (and probably bought out the 95% of PanO's stock of Spitfires, heck they even gave Spitfire to their only TAG xD)

    The presence of those on magisters remains my least favorite aspect about PanO's current range of miniatures. I loved the miniaturized hands-free system.

    Nobody is saying it can't be, but given that we've had them completely redesign a weapon(Panzerfaust) just to avoid having to give the Aquila Guard one--people aren't exactly trusting of CB when it comes to PanO weapons.

    pretty sweet, I love a guy holding a rifle bigger than him. I just wish the pose was a little different, I hate barrels sticking out my my foam/ bag.

    Uggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggh.

    Great that there's a female and everything, but it's starting to creep into meme/trope territory.
