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

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.

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 travw4 years ago
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.
Why do you want to be the Name Changing Fool in the first place?
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
LMAO! Flower vases.
Electroinnovation (author)  DrWeird1174 years ago
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?
Electroinnovation (author)  Skreetsha4 years ago
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?
Electroinnovation (author)  Skreetsha4 years ago
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.
Electroinnovation (author)  Skreetsha4 years ago
I don't know how to.
Let see I would give credit to Mykhailo and Bakenbitz. But other then that it looks okay.

By the way, I like the suspension...

Ummm... HELLO!!! http://knexinnovation.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=42
You didn't mention that it isn't your gun design!
Electroinnovation (author)  travw4 years ago
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.
Ok fine, it is VERY similar though.
Electroinnovation (author)  travw4 years ago
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.
Ok, don't want to start a fight or anything... =p

And Mykhailo's tank.
Skreetsha4 years ago

Electroinnovation (author)  Skreetsha4 years ago
