HellFire and War Wagon had to be put near each other for reasons that will be made clear soon.
Bill and Paul went head to head on 4-19 for JYW!
A few more of the HellFire Tank
Team War Wagon
The War Wagon belonging to Paul Hoard Mad Tanker, Capt. of TEAM WAR WAGON, Not
the Florida Gladiators. Paul sent word that Team War Wagon plays under the
banner of the Wolf Pack that is an association of several Florida teams and that
they've added another turret to the War Wagon and have done some changes to the
Hump wagon, pictures of which should be coming in soon. Bob
"Snooker" Kinney sent word that he took these four pictures along with
the pic of the Hump Wagon below.
a few more of the War Wagon
Andy 'ADorsai' VanDerPlaats sent in some old pics of War Wagon at Blanding.
Andy also sent these in, I'm not sure but that could be Paul Hoard.
right click on the camera below and choose 'Save Target As..' you can download the video of NOG's semi-auto cannon and pop-up turret in action. It's in an mpeg format and is about 5.3 megabytes large, (not recommended for those on Dial-up). If you watch closely you can see the PVC casings fall out of the turret after the first two shots. The semi-auto cannons name is Dede and it has 17 round ammo capacity, capable of either Nerf or Paintball sabot type rounds. NOG itself is built on a Kawasaki Mule 300A. The turret is powered and can spin 180 degrees in 3 seconds. The lift brings it to a height of 10' 6" The cannon has it's own video feed capable of 4X zoom.
NOG took home the 2004 Grand Finale Tank Award.
The Doom Troopers
These guys are one of the best group of tankers out there. If you need a tank these guys will build one for you! I don't know what they charge but you can be sure that it will be worth it.
I'm pretty sure that they're working on a site at http://www.area52paintball.com
The Bad Monkeys
I really should shrink their logo down a bit but it looks really good at this size.
This REALLY makes the Bad Monkeys the leader in number of tanks in the Armored Fist Gallery.
As far as I know the following tanks are all in Florida or Georgia. Also Team War Wagon, The Doom Trooper and The Bad Monkeys all play in Florida too.
Blackhearts Tiger. The Blackhearts are based in Atlanta Georgia. It was built for the Millennium's Band of Brothers series and first used at Bearclaw in Tennessee. They painted it orange to be the General Lee for the Red Necks at Low Country's free finale. Tiger Commander Bobio sent these in for me.
Andy 'ADorsai' also sent these in. This tank was used at a Dade City event and was built on a VW Pickup truck. The tank shell was removable so the truck could be used in non-tank roles. It's nice to see another tank that looks like a real tank, even if it's no longer active.
The TDF-1 Devastator, now owned by an unknown group in Florida. This originally was 'The Avocado of Death' belonging to 'The Knights who say NEE!'. Anthony of Team Delta Force acquired it from them and then sold it to buy Bad CompanyII's tank. What I really love about this machine is that it's a lawn mower based tank! Frankly I'm amazed based on this picture I thought it was built on..., well honestly I had no idea what it was built on but considering that it looks about as tall as a typical garage door I didn't think lawnmower. Anthony of Team Delta Force sent in a second picture, it's from an old magazine of Anthony's but I don't know which one. It's a bit fuzzy but between the two you can see it's really nice tiger stripe paint job.
Marines APC, at Wayne's World Aliens scenario. Judging from it's current appearance I don't think that this is an actively used tank.
These guys have some nice tank pics from some Wayne's World Games. Go through pictures and click on the tank picture. They have one of a 'Heavy Tank' that I had not seen before along with the other Florida heavies, Gunship and War Wagon. There's also some pictures of the HellFire tank as it premiered. Thanks Josh!
