We have had upwards of 15 games and no problems so far.

DO NOT use your daily driver, it will look like the surface of a golf ball after 1 game. Dimpled with cracked plastic bits. We have a couple of old beaters that are strictly used for airsoft, and become static props when not in use.
i can attest to this, we do allow our driver to go faster BUT we state that:

1. he sticks to the roads (which he and everyone else knows)
2. NO ONE to be on/crossing the roads when the car is 'active'

using a car like an APC gives the best results but i'd love to have something with a pintle mount

Well, the guys I play with and I came up with a grand idea. We were going to do a mounted unit (yes, actual horses). We'd train our horses to be unperturbed by BBs and give them special eye goggles. Our other idea was to get the one guy's horse to pull around a tachanka. That is a little backwards facing buggy with a heavy machine gun on a swivel. The ideas were really cool until we thought about the cost.

But then I came up with a new idea. A quad instead of a horse. Hell, one could even doctor the thing up to even look like a horse.

Lmfao. The better part of me feels shooting a horse with bb's is mean yet still I really really want to see this shit.

To bump a slightly old thread, along with the usual ATV's, how about the lower powered off-road capable type smaller motorcycles - to scale to the size of the fields that most of us play on. Most playing fields, face it - a 500cc military Armstrong, or 650cc militarized KLR650 would be WAY overkill considering the distances needed to be covered on 'scout missions'.

I'm thinking on lines of this:



Honda CT70 - 72cc 4-stroke MiniTrail

or this:



Honda Ruckus/Zoomer - 49cc 4-stroke Util-Scooter

set up a pintle mount on/between the handlebars for carrying your personal weapon, and you are good to go.

Basically, my reasoning is that these are the sort of modernish counterparts that come close to the WW2 Commando Corgi/Welbike in terms of design purpose.



I confess that i do have an ulterior motive to asking about this, since i do have a few basket-project CT70's sitting in the back of the garage waiting for motivation, inspiration, and purpose.. It'd be a heck of a way to combine my two favorite past-times..

Would give stability to the minibike. My concerns, though, would be safety and liability. A 2-wheeler, sans an approved helmet, in not always hospitable terrain or road conditions, in a milsim game, in full gear, is a recipe for potentially serious injury. 3-wheels would provide needed stability and could mitigate some of those issues.

Personally, I'd love to see a Ural fielded. With an MG mount.

So, motorcycles are too fast, and mopeds are too unstable...

I think we're gonna have to ride Big Wheels.

Our team operates using two small-scale vehicles, a Gator (4x4) and a jacked up electric golf cart. While the Gator can transport upwards of three troops (maybe five if you're really light and squish yourselves in properly), the golf cart is purely a resupply vehicle. The base rules we use regarding "kills" are that they require an anti-vehicle weapon (AT4 or RPG). Down the road the plan is still to fit bodies on the chassis' so they can receive an "armour" package, but it has been placed on the backburner while we create a new field.

since we bought brand new car and wifey growls at me every time I look at stuff to do to it (I've never owned a bone stock vehicle... it's weird)

I've been looking through vehicles for something for an "offroad" basher (nothing you need any more then a stock 4x4 jeep or even small wannabe 4x4 suv thing) .. and occasional airsoft rig

... I've settled on a tercel 4wd wagon, a sawzall ... a whole bunch of tubing ... and some inginuity in parts swapping from my time on tercel forums

... multi purpose war wagon... back route basher, people/gear hauler, mobile LMG mount, and sub in small pickup when needed LOL

My two points:
Vehicles can be as for environment
Мисхак Гивати 2011 - Атака блокпоста - YouTubeor for environment, transportation and as mobile fortification

I've played with real vehicles and it was fun. But, personally, if it isn't going to be used as troop transport, then the Polaris RZR is the way to go!

They're quick but not too big, come in 2 and 4 seater configurations as well as a small bed for cargo, and have convenient roll bars for mounting "Armour" or camo. Personally I'd love to boot around on scouting missions in the RZR!

Using vehicles is okay, but Ive found over-rated...depending on how serious your milsim is... ranks, chain of command, playing conditions....quite often vehicles are tougher to "take out" of the game as well, which destroys realism
