FIELD MANUAL FM-2115:
BUNKER, TACTICAL, TEMPLATE A-574
The standard tactical heavy field emplacement has been the Template A-574 for over eight decades. Capable of protecting a squad of infantry, it can be sealed against radiation and toxins by lowering a transparent roll-down blast shield. The door can be field-modified for use as an airlock, further protecting the occupants from harm.
Standard weaponry modules can be affixed to two remote weapons station attachment points on the bunker roof. The attachment points include power and data connections, giving the squad full control over the weapons. Although most uses foresee only the cupola M-22 multi-barrel infantry support weapon, a common weapons array pairs the M-22 with the more powerful CRWS-74 auto-cannon with selectable ammunition, giving the occupants a means of defense against vehicles, or a way of providing indirect fire support for distant units. Fully armed and coupled with a Mark 175 multi-spectral sensor pod, the A-574 can be an anchor for even battalion level defenses. Consequently, it is often used in sets to defend high-value installations.
The Bunker measures six inches square outside and four inches square inside. It is two and three quarters inches high with a removable top. There are optional parts to make the turrets fully rotatable. The interior clearance is one and a half inches, but the roof can be easily modified to allow for up to two and a half inches in clearance. The sensor mast can be detached, making storage easier.
The Bunker is scaled for popular 25-28mm gaming systems such as AT-43, WH40K, and Star Wars Miniatures Battles.
