Thanks for that. The original idea for the 'recovery' Baneblade came from buying two of the machines, so I would have enough guns (with spares from Leman Russ tanks) and side turrets for a Stormhammer. That left me with a pretty much empty hull to mount whatever engineer type machinery I could on. The big yellow toy crane part took up a lot of space (and was much easier to use than scratchbuilding a crane) so I went for that instead. You are right of course - an engineer vehicle could have a 'demolition gun' - something short and ugly for busting bunkers, and a crane. The real life M728 is an example - based on the M60 tank. But I took the lazy way out!
