Tank Gallery

I want this page to become a collection of all the tanks out there. Anybody who asks will have the photographers name added to these pictures.  Just let me know which ones!

I was starting to feel that the Gallery was getting a bit too large for a single page so I've split it up into several pages.  Many of the tanks are still shown below but I've now placed some tanks in the following additional galleries.

Florida Georgia

Outside the U.S.

Tank Designs

Germanic Invaders

Paintball Howitzers

Panzerhandwagen MkII

  O.k. now this is new to me, this tank is both rare ( it looks like a tank!) and unique (to my knowledge).  It moves around the field with no engine!  Built by Todd and Brendan of the Gryphonians.  Apparently Brendan (guy in Helmet) dislikes internal combustion engines and Todd (in cap) was so intrigued by the idea that he drew up the plans that night.  It's based on a pneumatic-tired hand truck and is pushed around the field by the operators.  It'll be armed with a single paintball marker and the Anti-Tank Lazer tag system.

Gryphonians-Anti-Tank-Laser-001.JPG (64589 bytes)  The Gryphonians Anti-Tank Laser.  Just to add to the fun of the whole 'How to disable a paintball tank, Jim and Todd will be using LazerTag systems as anti-tank weaponry at the next  Paintball Sam's Big Game in early May.

 

O.K. I've seen 3.5 versions of the 'love bug' tank here on L.I. none of which even came close to these two.  I'm starting to think the love bug Scorpions should hire Jim as a consultant.

These guys are based at Paintball Sam's in WI 

 

 

Action Creek Tankers

Although the field is gone the name lives on.

Bret Golihew.

Bret is one of the first paintball tankers if not the very first.  He's easily the first to build an accurate tank looking machine and as much as I hate to admit it their Sherman is more accurate than our Tiger.  We sometimes like to think differently about the Tiger but the Sherman is really a first rate machine and an inspiration to us (we're still louder though hahaha).

This picture really captures the Sherman

Unknown Tanks

Caveman of team 'Got Balls?' sent in this one from the Wayne's World 'Battle for Earth' 2000

O.K. still waiting on the scanner but I got word from an 88Arty through the WarPig tank talk forum that this isn't a paintball tank at all.  This is actually for carnival/amusement parks.  The cannon actually shoots tennis balls.  According to 88Arty the guy has four or so of these things in various states of disrepair (the one in this pic actually has a flat tire) and is selling them for 2K a piece.  88Arty believes that it would take at least twice that to make them functional.

 

The Scorpions Tank Team (Retired)

This machine was transferred to Cousins, it resided at their Coram warehouse prior to the 2003 LI Big Game.  George and I transported it to the Manchester field for the NJ Big Game.  We discovered that it had massive frame rot during that endeavor and we were actually a bit worried that it wouldn't make the trip.  It saw a little action at the NJ Big Game and has since then been deemed unsafe to drive due to the frame rot and has been retired as a field prop by the NJ manager Fred.

 

BG-02-Sun-Scorpions-LAV-001.jpg (80784 bytes)  The Scorpions have retired the Love Bug and are now fielding the LAV.  There are a lot more pictures of their new tank in the 2002 Big Game section that can be found in the Photo Archive.  As of the 2002 Big Game they had a bungee cord cannon that didn't quite work.
