I can't explain why I think this is so cool, but it is.

Do you think I could mount one of those just behind my Accord's sunroof? That'd be sweet for tail-gaters.

Looks like a fancier version of a technical, used by many militias that can't afford BRDM's or BRM's...

I might be wrong, but aren't Technicals usually just old Nissan pick-up trucks with a machine-gun turret in the rear end?

Saw something like that on a History Channel thing. The one on the show was automatic though. The truck it was mounted in was a pickup with a camper shell. The top opened up and an M2 on an electric mount rose up and it had an, more or less, video camera mounted on top so the guy in the passenger seat could aim it. The passenger seat had a display screen in front of him and a joy stick to rain .50 cal terror on any idiot in their way. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: It was cool, not really practical for every day use, but cool.

:kill:
Hey what happened to the truck?
They say, "the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots." I suppose it never occurred to them that they are the tyrants, not the patriots. Those weapons are not being used to fight some kind of tyranny; they are bringing them to an event where people are getting together to talk. -Mike Wong

But as far as board culture in general, I do think that young male overaggression is a contributing factor to the general atmosphere of hostility. It's not SOS and the Mess throwing hand grenades all over the forum- Red

Rear passenger doors open up to reveal missile launchers, the roof opens and the center seat moves up to be a 50 call emplacement....The headlights pop out and flamethrowers take their place...

This would be interesting, if I had not already posted a thread on these things quite some time ago.

I have seen this before, ages ago. But the version I saw had an enclosed automated turret with a .50 Browning and 40mm grenade launcher, remote controlled too.
