A Modified Tank to Combat Heavy Artillery...


Last Edited: April 28, 2008, 4:55 am

This had me thinking....1 submarine to build cost like 2 billion dollars (i am assuming decomissioned cost less), to make and i am thinking, that's a lot of iron to waste knowing that submarines are becoming each decade more and more obsolete...

And i thought? Why not create something like a Tank (you know tank are bullet proof), but create or build a Modified tank, a tank that will allow several people to fit comfortably sitting or standing down but large vertically and with enough horse power to move...And let it move with the same mechanics that regular tanks move...And somehow allow in this modified huge tanks (the tank should be large to to allow several people to sit on each side confortably, kind of like the old ship that allow people to row, well the same scenario here but that it will allow soldier to sit down and it will have a small opening, the small orifice will be enough to fit the barrel of riffles or you can have a slit so that whenever they want to stick the riffle barrel out they can, but only that it can be open from the inside...

And everytime you see like in Irak an area where you are getting heavy artillery by insurgence, you just drive this modified tank in there and beging firing...Then can fire at that tank all they want they will never hit nobody or make the bullet get in...You can then place small orifices on top with LAYERS of bullet proof glass so that soldiers can see...Perhaps this is not the perfect description but i am giving you an idea where you can elaborate and take it a step further....This will reduce the amount of casualties...Build yourself 100 of those and go into the most dangerous areas and wage war...Or everytime war breaks out in an area surrounded by buildings in a callejon, just call those Tanks...

Tell me how is a bullet going to penetrate something, when this something has 20 layers of bulletproof glass...

The inventors that you got, should be thinking in ways to modify this tank and make it work...Is there any? And you can build heavy metal around the wheel or tracks or the tank to cover it from a bomb...But again are they smart? Because Submarines and most ships that get decomisioned are a bunh of fortified metal gone to waste....

Can someone tell the Army this...

I mean i don't know how come no one has thought about the idea, since they got ingeneers who build new cars or airplanes, so why not have one for this where it counts, this is important..

I was in infantry and artillery. When you hear "armor piercing round" it means some of those rounds are capable of penetrating the armor on a tank. Once they do that they ricochet inside the tank for a few times and then go off.

To make a tank completely safe from artillery it would be so heavy it wouldn't be able to move.

The "kill spot" on a tank is right under the turret- the Swedes actually produced a tank whose turret recesses down into the body of the tank when the tank stops.

Not so sure about submarines being more and more obsolete. Modern day submarines are virtually submersible, mobile missile platforms.

i heard that there are like 30 different kinds of tanks, some more armored than others....
Comment by pumpi76 - April 28, 2008, 6:26 pm
some more lighter others more heavy than others...
Comment by pumpi76 - April 28, 2008, 6:28 pm
i know such a tank can can be built....

how do they make cars bullet proof? they are heavy and consume more gas, but they can move, same principle with a tak...

i am not talking about a tank with a turret, there will be no turret...

I'd call it the Pumpironi Can't Explode Me! You ever hear of an A-10 Warthog? We got it, we don't need no indestructible tanks, A-10's lead any armored battle now, the guys with the white hats have the Warthogs and the best military in the world. No one would be foolish enough to start a ground war with the US, just ask Saddam, their exalted guard was taken out in a day we lost nary a tank in the battle, they lost 157+ tanks and everything else.

i was talking like when you are in the city surrounded by buildings and fire is coming from the buildings, like usually is the area in Basra and Bagdad....I know that a well fortified tank, a basooka can't destroy it...Maybe a missile from the airplane but you are not using it for that type of combat, you use it when you taken control of a city and there are militia still fighting you with riffles...I don't think that a well fortified armored car can be penetrated by the bullet of a sniper...
And if is very heavy what about the engine of a locomotive? that's like the most powerful engine/motor ever...

did you see the movie with Harrison Ford (i think is imminent danger), where there are in colombia and there is a delegation from the U.S driving the streets with i think were Yukons SUV and they they get heavy fire from the buildings?
What the U.S ought to do is make everyone of their Hummers bullet proof, and with holes to fire at incoming assault...Can you imagine in a hummer well protected by bullet proof SITTING DOWN just FIRING AT PEOPLE...I think that's going to become the future of warfare...Also thanks the metal of the wheel is kind of heavy but what if you put like a heavy plastic or rubber pad on each slate of the tank's wheel so that it will slide when you are riding through the streets....

But i mean where are all the military ingeneers...
Comment by pumpi76 - April 28, 2008, 11:43 pm
the only problem with bullet proof cars or light weight armored vehicles is the wheels, i think those wheels if you shoot at them they got so much time that they can ride before changing the tires, i don't know i really don't know, that's what it looks like...

Can you imagine riding in a LOL...Submarine (i said riding not surfing), but Riding a Submarine along the streets, and all you had to do is sit down and fire at the enemy in the buildings, that same small submarine has huge amount of bullets pile up in stocks just if in case you need more...LOL...Que demencia...The Modified Tank or Submarine or whatever you want to call it, will have squared small windows all over made of 20 layers of bullet proof glass, though it should be bullet proof plastic and not glass...with small hole openings to place the barrel of the riffles...But those riffles will have to be silent because the noise they make....

They should do the same with police cars (not all police cars)...Are police cars bullet/sniper proof?....Not all police cars should be bullet proof, police cars should have their designated bullet proof cars, just if in case they are going in a heavy area...
Comment by pumpi76 - April 29, 2008, 12:01 am
i made a mistake, i confused the word heavy artillery with heavy gunfire...

And the good thing is that inside the armored cars guys can really cover their entire body with bullet proof aparel, even the neck and face, just leaving the eyes open, kind of like batman, but covering your neck and chin, checks, and forehead, just leaving the eyes open...Inside the armored car you don't really have to mobilize, all you have to do is fire the gun as many times as you can...And the armored vehicle should have stock pile up and pile up of bullets...Also the odds that 1 bullet will get into that hole when the soldier is closing the hatch at that particular instance fraction of a second the odd are astronomical, it will have to be a sniper and really good, i mean a sniper that only drink and sleeps thinking about targets...and even if the bullet was to get in, it will hit the soldier's chest or bottom of the troat something that will be covered with bullet proof apparell....
Comment by pumpi76 - April 29, 2008, 12:43 am
and what does this armored truck/vehicle/tank will do? its mission is to move snipers or gunman from their hidden spots so that the ground troops who are behind somewhere taking cover, can mobilize and get the sniper or guys hidden in a building corner....
Comment by pumpi76 - April 29, 2008, 12:48 am
i say this because normally when there is such a scenario with snipers hidden in corners or in buildings, fire between the two parties is a shoot me if you can and the troops are stagnant....troops can't move....and the fire is you shoot first and then i shoot back, wasting bullets...
Comment by pumpi76 - April 29, 2008, 12:53 am
that stuff about you sitting down or standing ontop of a hummer is really inneficient because if you start to get fire from different angles you will get hit...Is really innefficient..
And the heavily armored vehicle/tank/truck can have inside radio and telecomunications just if in case....
But the heavily armored vehicle/tank/truck is not for it to ride along but instead to be used when there is heavy gunfire between two parties...
