Dogs Of War Onesies
part 2 of my dogs of war illustrations. This time it's a Sherman tank with a crew full of fuzzy hounds. The Sherman was a medium tank manufactured in America and fielded by the allies in WW2. This version is a firefly which is a British modification sporting a different turret and a 17 pounder gun that was more capable of knocking out a heavy German tank like the Tiger than the standard Sherman armourment.

The 5th addition to the series and those pesky dogs of war are at it again this time in a German made Jagdpanther. This is a ww2 tank destroyer specifically designed to engage and destroy other armored vehicles. It doesn’t have a turret so that it can instead posses stronger armor and a bigger gun.

My first Dogs of War comic is here! This one concerns the Germans and their bad habit of over confidence and over engineering everything. German tanks were high spec and high quality but many broke down before they even made it into the fight.

Even so it was a good vehicle and performed admirably for its crews.

Although not the best tank of the war, in great numbers it was an effective weapon and one of the best fielded by the Soviet Union. This one is crewed by those pesky dogs of war and is an up-gunned version of the original T34 design. The T34/85

This Dogs of War illustration features the Russian KV2. It was a massive tank in its day. A huge 152mm howitzer was mounted in a battle ship style turret. It was slow, top heavy and cumbersome but almost impervious to attack. These dogs appear to run down a locals bicycle. They must have not been looking where they were going!
