Historical note: the Kugelpanzer is a ball tank design made in Germany and captured in Manchuria by the Red Army and no one knows what it was doing there.

Just bought this $5 model from a 15mm sci fi game although the model is the right size to be a Legit Kugelpanzer for a 28mm scale miniature:

I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

So Kugelpanzer: make it an actual sci fi vehicle or a hunter killer type robot?

If a robot then I think it would have a robot body half way between a standard robot body and a heavy duty robot body, STA and weight wise.

The only reason I wouldn't relegate a ball tank to strictly steam punk gaming is the fact that it was already produced and used in the real world so it is a real not a fanciful thing.

I'd vote for it to be a Dralasite design.

Good idea. I'm of a mind to stat up both a vehcile and a robot.

Seems more like a robot to me - possibly an earlier design that's now obsolete but still found across the frontier by those on a budget.

True. A robot would make more sense.

But, if it was meant to transport someone, I'd say it would have to be a Dralasite.
