Paintball Tank!

Unread postAuthor: iPaintball » Mon Apr 07, 2008 8:08 pm

Wow, i must say i was VERY impressed when i saw this piece of art on wheels. It has a SCUBA tank air source to pressurize the chamber and I've been told the canon operates on an electric solenoid valve. The vid will explain the rest... Clicky.

With out pics or references, you are a 13 year old with a flapping jaw. At least show us some plans or sketches that you have been preparing.
Also, diesel may be loud as hell, but so are tanks, so in that fashion it seems as though his will be more accurate than yours.
I'm not meaning to flame you, just constructive criticism on how to be a good forum mate.

I seem to remember reading an article some where perhaps it was here on a guy that builds tanks at 1/3 or 1/2 scale and they take them to matches and shoot paint balls at other tanks of similar size...if I remember right it was in the land down under...

I don't know has any one else heard of that or I am just loosing it?

Edit: Wait till Scottcrete sees this he has a perfect anti tank weapon for it :D

There is one we are finishing. I prefer not to publish Designs, so you get to sit on your hands and wait.

Thats a cheep way to play unless you also allow tank busters :D

If course with any luck and a few openings I am sure I could snipe some one out of the turret and driver seat with my A5....

But then again anything like that has huge blind spots...

They DO allow tank busters (actually, the design of such is what got me into air cannons to start with).

But I gotta side with the Panzer. Soco, for you to poo-poo the Panzer and then show us vehicle that isn't even tracked?.... Have you ever seen a real tank? Even a picture of one? Panzer boy has you eight different ways 'til Sunday.

I think they do this two ways (I don't play paintball but I red up on paintball tanks). They have the obvious: large bore air cannons with paintball shells. I also believe you can use a nerf football to "destroy" a tank on the field.

Secondly, I believe you can use satchel charges in which you would just run up on the tank and place/throw the charge on the tank, essentially destroying it.
