T-53 Thumper

T-53 Thumper

Watermarked PDF

Having been defeated once again by Bel Novgorod’s super tanks , the military leadership of Pindar III sent out a request for proposals for a new, inexpensive tank killer.  The McNeill Automotive Industries response was the T-53 Bronco, a light vehicle with a crew of two and six large diameter recoilless rifles mounted on a pair of pylons.  After it’s first battle when two of the small tankettes stopped a pair of Bel’s Kitties, the crew gave them their now famous nickname: Thumper.  While Thumper’s main drawback was that the recoilless rifles could only be reloaded from outside the vehicle, the crews pointed out that by that time, there weren’t any threats left on the battlefield. The tankette design was so versatile that a scout version with a remote weapons station and an infantry support version with a multi-weapon unmanned turret quickly followed.  The McNeill Industries design team even produced a version with the new Mark IV gravitic lift propulsor pods.   Eventually, the Pindar III army settled on a standard squadron of three recoilless rifle Thumpers plus a scout version as the squadron command vehicle.

Finger and Toe Models announces the release of the 28mm card stock T-53 Thumper, an affordable tank killer that comes in five digital camouflage and three solid color schemes.  In addition to the standard T-53 Thumper armed with six recoilless rifles, parts are included to build the scout version with its RWS, the infantry support vehicle version with its multi-weapon turret, and both the tracked and the gravitic lift version.  That’s a total of forty eight variations!  Also included are the parts needed to convert the Finger and Toe Tsiklon logistics truck to an ammo carrier for the Thumper.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your T-53 Thumper, a new one waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
