Introduction: T.N.K.I.T Round 1 Entry - Every Terrain Tank With Fully Automatic Turret

Picture of T.N.K.I.T Round 1 Entry - Every Terrain Tank With Fully Automatic Turret

This is my entry for T.N.K.I.T. It's a very special little tank. This baby has fully independent suspension and it has a fully automatic gun on top which holds 15 shots and can shoot 1 per second with the flick of a switch. Hope you enjoy.

Step 1: The Gun

Picture of The Gun

The gun shoots about 60 rounds per minute. In the video I only loaded a few because it takes a while to prepare and I had to get the perfect lighting and angle. The gun rarely jams and shoots 1-2 meters (3-6 feet) which is rather far for a fully automatic gun.

Step 2: The Rest of It

The suspension is independent and very strong. There is not, however, a motor to make it move forwards, so you have to push it by hand. This vehicle takes the term "tank" to a whole new level.

Electroinnovation (author)smilee2009-10-21

...I dont know probably not its pretty bad.

Reminds me of a tank I made.

I put a machine gun on it, but that sucked.

So then I put a camera on it.

Then I decided I wanted a topic for it.

OH!!! Carlz!!! I didn't realize this was you! Well, I obviously have the same username. =p

Whaleman (author)travw2009-07-17

Yup. It's me. It's part of being the Name Changing Fool. You have to have different usernames for everything. IRC, Forums, Different Forums, et cetera.

DJ Radio (author)Whaleman2009-09-12

Why do you want to be the Name Changing Fool in the first place?

Whaleman (author)DJ Radio2009-09-12

Who? What? I just haven't changed this username yet. I have a different one on KI, and I use a nickname for that one on IRC. But awhile back I used to have a new name every month. Then Mepain called me TNCF and said I couldn't change my name anymore.

wassup foo? =P

DrWeird117 (author)Whaleman2009-07-19

LMAO! Flower vases.

Ok I've been wondering this forever. What does Lmao stand for?

Laughing My @$$ Off.

I didn't know that was you. wow

lol i have the same motor

Then go make it. It's pretty good. It's better if you make the treads shorter, though. Easier turning. IE- Move the middle one back a space, and remove the front one.

Cool, but i can't watch the video. Can you please change it to WMV instead of a MOV file?

I figured out how so give me a day and I'll convert the files

Microsoft Movie Editor!!!

Ok, i saw the suspension one and the minigun one. Can't see the two mov vids though, are you gonna convert those too?

The other 2 videos are the same thing but I'll make a full movie of everything for your benefit. After all, you're the judge.

I don't know how to.

Let see I would give credit to Mykhailo and Bakenbitz. But other then that it looks okay.

travw (author)2009-07-17

By the way, I like the suspension...

travw (author)2009-07-16

Ummm... HELLO!!!
You didn't mention that it isn't your gun design!

Electroinnovation (author)travw2009-07-16

That is the basic idea of a fully automatic gun but you apparently cant see the HUGE difference. Mine isn't even close to that one other than the fact that there is a motor and a hopper.

travw (author)Electroinnovation2009-07-16

Ok fine, it is VERY similar though.

Electroinnovation (author)travw2009-07-17

Not really. Its the same basic idea but I have never seen that before. I saw a Similar one on Google and I got the idea but mine is pretty different.

travw (author)Electroinnovation2009-07-17

Ok, don't want to start a fight or anything... =p

DJ Radio (author)2009-07-16

nice, kinda reminds me of dsman's gunbots.

And Mykhailo's tank.

Skreetsha (author)2009-07-17

Oh, and it is the TNKIT, btw.

Oh ill change it.
