Just every one of us we want to know what our ultimate place is in the games we play. Why should a superheavy tank be any exception? There are at least three different versions of the Superheavy tank (see below) that I know of to this unique and quite powerful unit. It is quite powerful indeed. The next step is a relatively lightly armored (for OGRE standards) OGRE chassis ... the Mark 1. I would dare say that the "Thor" Superheavy is a Mark 1 with people inside. Why I don't see many Mark 1 OGREs with dual 3att/3rng guns is beyond me. Maybe they didn't want to change the specs too many times - I dunno.
Special not on the CRT as pertains to the Superheavy Tank:
To clarify on the SuperSuperHeavy, multiple D results don't stack on it. So any D disables it anew. even if it was already disabled.
NE => No effect

D => Disables, even if was disabled before. (Possibly extending disabled time.)
X => Lose one gun and one AP and disable or turn to hulk if was Xed before.
XX => Gone. (This is why I have XX on my CRT dice)

Has underwater movement as long as it does not stray no more than one hex from shore (continental shelf travel).

But ... Hamsters are more than a match for any Superheavy crew. They will be overcome with "adorable shellshock" at the sight of this cuddle inspiring fuzzy siren on four legs...
... Rest in piece little Peaches. She was so fun to play with.

I now have a new OGRE/GEV hamster mascot for our gaming group named Apricot below...

You really want my opinion on which one to paint first says the expert miniatures hamster...
Take it or leave it - paint the Mark V first, Dave! And for squeakiness sake - use an undercoat when painting...
