I have a question, for logistics purpose, can I build a 1/32 navy air craft carrier deck tractor, they are always moving weapons, fuel, personal, etc.



Martin the Campaign Leader has the final say on this, but I would say that this fits the rules:

"Operational Overview
A campaign for all of those who are in the second line and supporting the fighting line. "

... in the same way an artillery tractor fits. Basically anything that moves some form of manufactured materials from A to B that somehow aids the frontline soldier (i.e moving soil from A to B is engineering, but moving beer crates from A to B [for shipping to the quatermaster's personal stash - oops] is Logistics )


Martin would I be correct in saying more expanded examples are:

A Train engine with attached Cargo/platform trucks (unarmed trucks)
Military transport aircraft (no AC47 Puff the Magic Dragons!)
Any cargo transport type truck
Forklifts, trolley lift trucks, etc
Container ships, Oil Tankers, etc (Maybe stretching here)
Purpose built Artillery tractors/ towing vehicles (No gun tanks with artillery tied to the back)
Tank Transporters
Airfield/carrier support vehicles (bomb/missile rack towing vehicles, fuel trucks, etc.)




Those are already OK -I think that a wrote them in the beginning. If not - it is my mistake. The problem is t he engineering machines - in my (army) opinion they are in the first line of the war field.
The list that is somewhere up here is just an example of logistic vehicles - not the only allowed for this campaign.

Everything that is supporting the troops and the first line but not involved directly - it is OK. Towing trucks, loading trucks, forklifts, artillery ammunition suppliers, fuel and water trucks, container trucks, tank loaders.
Just an examples.

It would be fun with a dedicated Engineering campaign sometime next year



You just volunteered to be Campaign Leader and I'll be your first recruit.

Not sure the frontline soldier is all that worried about his garden unless he is growing something to smoke

I get where the question comes from as the Campaign Overview of

"Operational Overview
A campaign for all of those who are in the second line and supporting the fighting line. "

...would suggest an excavator digging trenches could be supporting the fighting line.

Maybe clarification

"Operational Overview
A campaign for all of those who are involved in the movement of manufactured goods in support of those on the fighting line. "

What happens when the customer has ordered new soil for his garden and it has to be transported from somewhere to the garden in question?

Peter for your ribbon ideas.
Being ex-RNZAOC I'm inclined to opt for the first - just the boxes .
I've finally decided (subject to change at a later date ) on what I plan to build. It's something slightly odd in comparison to the majority - Schreitbagger Kaiser SX - Austrian Bundesheer @ 25th.
See you all at the start line .



For those of us who need to ask Google:


That is a really cool subject for this campaign
/ Robin



This is engineering and not logistic machine - those are not allowed....

I like the ribbon with the crates, I think that pretty much sums up logistics.

I have a question, for logistics purpose, can I build a 1/32 navy air craft carrier deck tractor, they are always moving weapons, fuel, personal, etc.

If not, then no worries, I'll just find something else to build. It's good to be back!

I prefer the fourth in Peter list. Very cool !

In my mind the maneuver visible in the fifth drawing has no sense.

I'll be happy to get some ideas for the ribbon of this one.
I'm not so creative.
The only one that I built is this:

Thank you, Martin. Count me in with an LAV-LOG then, it's gonna mean a bunch of surgery and kit bashing. An excuse to buy more stuff for the stash, WOOHOO!

I'm considering giving this one a try, but before I sign up I have to find out if the entry I am considering will be allowed I'm interested in doing an LAV-L, it's the Logistics variant of the LAV-25 series but my question is if you'll allow it since it's used for other purposes besides logistics - vehicle towing, casevac, etc. I'm pretty sure it fits the criteria, but I'm looking for an okeedokee from the bossman on this one...



It is OK - it is a logistic vehicle, so no problem.

Would civilian trucks be allowed ? I have MiniArt's L1500S Beer Delivery Truck, #38014 in the stash and it should see the "light of day" soon.




Sound cool - no problem with civilian
