Be careful what you wish for...

During the discussion (comments) which followed the recent post about my Morris Armoured Car (http://megablitzandmore.blogspot.com/2011/04/morris-armoured-car.html), and the merits or otherwise of the mighty Boys AT rifle with which it is armed, Paul (this one: http://plasticwarriors.blogspot.com/) suggested that althought it would struggle with tanks, a Honda might make a good target.  Unfortunately, the commander of the Morris (see photo below) is a regular reader - and it clearly gave him ideas!

The Morris car's commander scans the landscape from the wargames room window sill for suitable targets...
aha, what's this he can see?
Target acquired! (my Wife's CR-V - bought a couple of weeks ago)
Damn - out of range!  So he makes a call to some chums...
...in the Medium Artillery Regiment, and soon....
A hit!  And when the smoke clears....
Oh dear. 
This will be rather tricky to explain to my domestic authorities....

Nice shot! Once your wife see's this post expect counter battery fire.

No injuries one hopes?

Al
Certain people should know better than to encourage me!

I expect her socone strike capability will be more then adequate to deal with the Morris and it's chums!

Glad you enjoyed it - and no money wasted on special effects!

Ross Mac said...

Hmmm so this has nothing to do with claims that it was a slab of wood that hit the Sabb last year, right?

Tim Gow said...

Ross Mac
Don't! I still have visions of that wood flying throught the air. Just lucky it wasn't artillery fire!

Don M said...

LOL that was a rather good one Tim...)

All was well until the gunners got involved. Troublemakers.
