Two More Combat Units Coming for Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare

From the press release…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of the Axis Armored Transport and the SSU’s KV-3 Heavy Walker, two tough new units for Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare!

Axis Armored Transport

Axis generals respond to the ubiquitousness of enemy fire by deploying their new Axis Armored Transport. This hulking transport unit is a new sight on battlefields around the world, and its ability to shelter valuable infantry as it carries them safely past light rifle fire has granted new tactical advantages to the Axis military.

Axis engineers have developed two primary configurations for the Armored Transport, each of which features Advanced Reactive Fire, Carry Capacity: 6, and six hit points to keep troops out of harm’s way.

Here’s one of the four units.

The first configuration, the Prinzluther marks the game’s debut of the Command Vehicle skill. Any unit with the Command Squad skill or NCO Command Squad skill that takes shelter within its plated hull can still communicate with the outside world via the Prinzluther’s modern communications arrays, antennas, and radars. Furthermore, such a squad gains additional benefit from this extensive collection of communications technology. Not only can a squad issue directives from safely within the vehicle’s interior, it may, once per round, reroll any failed die results when checking to see if it can successfully use one of its special abilities.


The success of the Prinzluther inspired the transport’s second configuration, the Sturmprinz. The Sturmprinz is becoming ever more popular among Axis officers fighting in rough terrain. Its mobility and large transport capacity has made it one of the most popularly requested vehicles among Axis battle groups worldwide. More heavily armed than the Command variant, the Sturmprinz can transport six soldiers on the inside with its Carry Capacity, and can still carry six more Tank Riders on the outside. While only those soldiers riding on the inside receive full protection, those on the outside can use their weapons and help safeguard the Sturmprinz itself.
