Very nice size! I have a number of large RC Tanks and this looks like a great and original project! Might try it if I get the time.

That's the weaponized version, known as SWORDS, or Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection System. Quoted from Wikipedia: There are a variety of different weapons that can be placed on the SWORDS; M16 rifle, 5.56 mm SAW M249, 7.62 mm M240 machine gun, .50 cal M82 Barrett rifle, a six barreled 40 mm grenade launcher or quad 66 mm M202A1 FLASH incendiary weapon. SWORDS units have demonstrated the ability to shoot precisely. It is not autonomous, but instead has to be controlled by a soldier using a small console to remotely direct the device and fire its weapons. Foster-Miller are currently at work on a "Game Boy" style controller with virtual-reality goggles for future operators. So no, they don't shoot pellets unless you mount an airsoft gun.

 ouch, pop up .50 cal shooter!!!!! no more setup needed.
also, a 6 barreled grenade launcher mounted on that would pown mw2 or BC2

In '07 I had an idea kind of like this, but I tried to make the armor out of special plating that took forever to assemble enough panels of, then took even longer to connect together. I gave up because I ran out of pieces to actually build the tank part after I was finished with the armor :(

Hiyadudez (author)2009-09-12

'Tanks'. Lol. Terrible joke I know...
