BTW( I think this means 'By The Way')
What is the records of the game? We can put this on wiki, but we have to put the save game link to prove the record...

Back in the UAHQ days, people posted their times for completion of levels/entire game. It would take a little bit of time to find them, if they even exist anymore... I believe a large portion of the posts on that forum have been lost, for whatever reason.

we can create a section to this, like the records of completion of levels\entire games (original, expansion or custom) and the best can has "achievements" on forum...

I've always though that the Ostwind is a remake of the old rocket wagon from long ago. That is not it's exact name but it fired many rocket arrows at the enemy. The Ostwind looks like a mobilized version of that vehicle. :geek:

Maybe, but I think it's more probably based on the soviet Katyusha rocket launcher. It looks like it and some names of the graphics models also suggest this.

But I thought Katyusha was developed for an attack of ground target.

Yeah, the Katyuskas were developed to attack ground enemies rather than air units.
Although the Ostwind is not a truck like a Rock Sled, since it rides on treads, and it uses SAM missiles instead of ground rockets...

...technically speaking, the UA MD Ostwind design is like a fusion between the Katyuska (by the multiple rocket launcher) and the SA-13 Gopher (both move on treads), and despite the Taerkastens vehicles are around the World War I/ II, this makes technically the Ostwind the most evolved Taerkasten vehicle along with the Phantom.

Just sayin', have you seen sometime a Katyuska vehicle pic with treads instead of just free tires? Look that SA-13 pic:
