This is my entry for the Flak build (that I'm now entering into the correct area :doh: )

Праща (in English: Sling) is a ad-hoc weapon system created by the Serbs in the later part of the Third Balkan War. It is made up by using the gunmount of the M-55 20mm towed AA gun, a welded, adjustable frame with what appears to be a car windshield, 2 hardpoints and 2 AA-8 Aphid short range IR missiles, as seen here:

For my version I've used brass wire and plasticcard plus the hardpoints and missiles from a old MiG-29 kit.

Gamewise I intend to use this as a Sa-7 in Rapid Fire Moderns. Primeraly meant for Yugoslavia, it might even get some use in the Afrika Big Game later this year.

So do the missiles arm themselves once launched? Or is it a "point and fire and hope" kinda deal?

Yes, all airlaunched AA missiles do so. I think you mean locking on to their target.....these are heat seekers so aim and pray would be the best wording as I doubt they got it rigged in such a way with a headset so you you would hear the lock on growl tone. With a short 3km range praying would be the most effective thing, yes ;)

Beuatiful painting. The Yugoslavs always seem to combine great technical skill and ingenuity with full-on Balkan craziness!
