HISTORICAL DATA:
Weight: 31 tons
Length: approx. 20'
Width: approx 10-12'
Height: approx 10'
Armament: M114 155mm howitzer

This tank was built off of the chassis of the M41 Walker Bulldog. In place of a turret is a large, open canopy with the heavy 155mm howitzer in the middle. Due to the use of the M41 Walker Bulldog's chassis and drivetrain, the M44 had increased mobility and speed compared to other SPGs.


MODEL DATA:
Scale: 1 stud to 1 foot (approx.)
Brick Count: 504
LDD Building Guide Length: 192 steps

This model was the largest tank I had built in LDD up to this point. This was not a very large obstacle, as it merely made me use the same techniques on a larger scale. The front armor was created by hinging plates and then deleting the bricks used to hinge them, making them essentially magically float. This was also done for the sloped part of the track guard. All in all, a fun build.

Enjoy!

Great M44! That was the arty I was on when the Xbox WoT became the full game and everything got wiped that I had from the beta.

In my opinion the cutest little tank ever, I never actually got to play it because I already had M12 when it jumped to tier 7. A very neat little build!
