The IPAC was a somewhat overlooked vehicle, manufactured in India during WW2. It was used by both the Indian forces which formed a significant part of the Commonwealth armies in the Western Desert, East Asia, and in Italy, as well as being used by New Zealand forces, who also employed it in WW2 as well as in the later Korean war.
In Bolt Action the IPAC has the same abilities, point cost, and armament options as a universal carrier, but is wheeled, meaning if you have a table with some roads, you can get some distance with a 24″ advance or a 48″ run.
Further to my prior work on the one piece Bergman file (which is ideal for resin printers), in the interest of optimizing the file for FDM printers, I
- flattened the hull bottom,
- created a mounting hole in the front glacis plate for your option of a bren gun or Boys ATR (included)
- simplified the open crew compartment to reduce the support requirements
- created separate axles, to be mounted to the hull,
- created a mount for the pintle mounted bren gun
- added bolt detail to the wheels
- created new bren gun and Boys ATR bits for better durability
This should be printed on 0.1layers, with supports. Always carefully remove support material and test fit before gluing.
You may want to print the “weapons pack” on a brim, depending on your comfort level with adhesion of small parts on your build plate. That file contains the pintle mounted bren gun, and the barrels (which fit into the recess on the front glacis plate) for a bren gun and a Boys ATR
