Airsoft Tanks?

Post by Gteam » Sun May 27, 2012 9:38 pm

Airsoft tanks, armord trucks and cannons. From a 4 wheeler with a wood box to something large. Is there any use for these? And are they even allowed at area airsoft/paintball fields?

They're mainly used at larger ops for props. I know several that mount plywood on trucks. However, some game organizers have access to real APCs, etc.
Like I said, they're normally just for atmosphere, because they usually can't do too much, i.e. knocking down buildings or driving through an AO due to safety concerns.

Operation: East Wind has 2 British FV-432s, one of which has a demilitarized 120mm cannon on it. They also have 1 British Ferret armored scout car. The East Bloc side has a BTR-40 and a BTR-152. They are used during the op, but don't fulfill any crucial roles. They're mainly brought for fun for the owners.

I was thinking of a tank something like this.

And a cannon like this! And this looks like FUN!

But what I was thinking of is. Will the (MN & WI) aera airsoft/paintball fields be able to suport games with tanks and stuff?

Or will they be turned down because they are "to big", "unsuitable terane", or saftey.
The tanks might need trails to drive on.

Thanks.

The only MN field that a "tank" would work on is the Big Lake field.

The Midwest Ostfront Airsoft, WW2 airsoft, has used tanks and armored cars on many fields of play.
One member is nearing completion on a full size half track and has a side car motorcycle rig with machine gun mount expected this summer.
