The Neubaufahrzeug tank was a rather imposing behemoth for its time, even if its bark was worse than its bite. Crewed by six, aside from its main and secondary armament, it included an 8mm Mauser machine gun in the main turret, as well as two additional machine guns mounted in their own turrets off of the hull, one facing forwards and the other to the rear.

The exact fate of the Neubaufahrzeug seems to be unclear, with some sources claiming they were destroyed in battle on June 28th, 1941 after being shifted to the East to partake in Barbarossa, while others imply they were simply scrapped for their metal around that point. Possibly some of the tanks suffered each fate.

The Saiga 12 shotgun, patterned around the Kalashnikov platform is one of the unfortunate number of Russian firearms that are now banned due to recently imposed sanctions. I suppose if you want a Saiga 12, better get one before their prices get gouged from the panic buying. I don’t see them being as collectable as some of the Chinese guns which suffered a similar fate, since so many Saigas have already entered the U.S. (GRH)

Saiga 12

A heavily modified Saiga 12 shotgun. Biggest overall change is the left hand side charging handle. In spite the drastic change in appearance, as well as ergonomics, the asking price of $2,700 just isn’t viable nowadays. For that price you could get a Benelli M4 and still retain a decent market value if you resell. Modified Saiga 12’s are notoriously difficult to resell without taking a hit.

Goodbye saiga :(
