Seriously? A nerf tank?

How is it going to be propelled? Who's going to allow it at a war? Why is it even necessary?

Why thats just nifty. It really wouldn't be hard to build. Although I see no purpose for it, it would be cool just to put in a field as a sort of an obstacle/wall/ctf base.

If this actually develops you have to paint a giant Nerf logo on the side.

Is it meant to just sit there, or do you actually think your going to build a working, moving, Nerf dart shooting turreted tank?

You can use it if i can bring my francesca axe. But seriously, go to a nerf war. You will see that tanks would not things more fun for anybody. If you watch several of the nerf war videos from the NIC, you will see that dodging and being maneuverable are important.

If you had searched, you would have discovered the opinion of tanks in nerf without getting flamed.

Please. If I saw this, the first thing I would do is run full force at it, break it/knock it over, and blast whoever was inside. Fuck 3-15, whether I got shot or not, I would be so offended by this, I would be unable to control my urge to destroy it. In conclusion, I concur with shadowkid33.

Overreact much? Yeah, it's silly. But that wouldn't give you the right to destroy it, no matter how much you were "offended".

Haha, yeah a little, but still. What am I supposed to do with that? I can't rush at it. I can't stand back and pick them off from a distance. I can't wait for it to move out in the open. The only other way to defeat it that I can see is destruction. Its invincible otherwise.

Two words: golf. cart.

You could probably used this for a scenario match and use titans/LBB/BBBBs as anti-tank weapons, but I'm not a big fan of objective-based matches. Other than that, I so no practicality in a nerf tank, but by all means, don't let us stop you. Build it and rain foamy death upon whoever you see fit :lol: . That should be the objective of every nerfer. Nerf on.

If it were made of cardboard, high powered nerf weaponry would just cluster fuck it. It would make it's passengers less mobile, and they would have less of a field of view. Bunker buster grenades thrown inside, or those lanard grenades would also screw anyone inside.

Nerf wars are not supposed to resemble real wars. They are more about sprinting, dodging, aiming, and reloading. NOT sneaking, snlping, hiding, or being protected by some sort of tank. Seriously, go to a nerf war, and see what would be useful and what would not.

You could use a life-size half golf-cart half toy car ( Link ). Maybe if you took the roof off of the toy jeep and added vulcans to the back seats (one on each side), then the passenger would have say a Longshot, and the driver had a pistol.sticking out the side and carrying massive amounts of ammo. The toy vehicle could be spray painted camo with a large nerf logo on the the side along with a dart tag logo too. The titan rocket could be the "anti-tank weapon." Each team would have one designated "tank driver."

It looks quite similar to this military jeep Link

This would also make the game more practical and fair due to the toy vehicles greatly low speed. It would increase the fun even more in my opinion if everyone has some walkie-talkie or some means of communication. The teams would have to obviously be on different channels as to not give away the enemy positions. Maybe this could become a new game type if other people like the idea.

This is a funny idea, but i think it is defiantly worth a try. If anyone has a toy vehicle and would like to experiment , please try it out at a war with your friends, and tell us if it works, and if it has any real Nerf war potential.

Well... so is your spelling.
On topic: This would HAVE to be florescent or some onlooker would freak out. Although you could make it out of a go-cart and have a titan on top and a vulcan underneath like a real tank.

Heh. Today at school I saw a golf cart, and was imagining how fun it would be to drive around at a nerf war firing a RF20 with your other hand. Or even better, to "hijack" a golf cart. The only way it would be fun is if it was with a golf cart, since otherwise it would be impossible to hit the driver.

You live across the country from me, but you are hereby banned from any wars that I host.

As for rules, maybe just have a certain number of hits before the tank and everyone in it were destroyed. Or you could make it a rule that if any dart goes in the hatch, everyone dies.

Yeah this is a slight over-reaction on my part but let me explain. My deep rooted dislike for plywood tanks comes from my paintballing days. I played a reenactment of the Battle on Hoth from Star Wars, and similar structures were used to represent AT-ATs. They were much more rudimentary in design than what has been proposed here, and were still impossible to take down. Seriously. It took us like 2 hours to get everyone inside of that thing out, and there were only 6 people in it. Versus like 15 outside of it. With semi-automatic weaponry. Firing all at once. Did I mention 2 hours? It would be the anti-fun if used in a nerf situation, because nothing would be effective against it. You could create some kind of special rule system, but it would be really hard to make balanced.

Simple solution. Target holes drilled in the sides. That way you have a chance of getting a shot inside the tank. You could either run up and if you can get close enough you can dip your hand in and take out the operator or if your shooting skills are up to par you could do it from a distance. If the thing is impenetrable then this kills the fun of the game. If there were rules hits till death. then someone would need to keep track of that. also you would have to expect for the structure to be taken down fast in that case.
If it were like 30 shots till it was blown I'd just load up a couple magstrikes and pummel you with darts.

I'm thinking such a structure would need to be stationary tho. And of course it would not be allowed unless there were one for each team unless it were an assault type scenario.

I just noticed you're in WA. If you actually intend on building one of these and bringing it to a war you might want to talk with one of the local guys that organize the wars around here (me being one of them) before bringing it. If the majority of the guys aren't down with it it will get no play time.

I've always wanted to make one too. Go for it! Even if it doesn't move who cares, it'd be sick.

Put a vulcan on top of it along with an RF20. Then stick a titan in the front.

Making something like this is a lot easier said than done.

On a different note, I think it would be cool to take a simple RC car toy and integrate a vulcan on top. Rewire the vulcan so that the car remote control can fire it. Then, put it on a circular platform above the car that could be spun with a motor via the same remote control, and you've got pretty cool weapon.

Of course, I have never been to a war, so my idea is probably just Effeminate fail and would not be fun at all in an actual war, but it's interesting to think about, considering how simple it would be to accomplish.

This is a concept thread. Concept threads are generally extremely erotic here.

It is about a nerf tank. Nerf Tanks are generally extremely erotic here.

Also, A plywood tank would be useless in a nerf war. It would be bulky, slow, and would only be useful for people who would camp anyway. If I saw a plywood tank I would just ignore it and work around it. It can only be in one place at a time.

A cardboard tank would be dangerous. It encourages the use of high powered nerf blasters that have the potential to hurt someone who is not wearing the cardboard armor. Also, darts have been know to come apart, leaving the smaller and more dangerous head to hurt someone inside upon penetrating the tank.

Lastly, I don't think you'll actually build it. This concept has been around for a long time and nobody has done it yet because of the necessary investment of money and time. It's dumb.

The only way I can see this working would be to take a golf cart and add some plywood into the mix to give it more of a tank feel, but not enough that its occupants were fully protected. Then, the tank would be "destroyed" by something like a Titan Missile. That way, the tank and its occupants are far from invincible, and would really have to work to make it effective.
