Scenario Gear To The MAX! Paintball Unmanned Combat Vehicle.

Finally after about a year and half of build and development I have finished what is likely the first paintball UGCV. This was wall self funded and built, down to the machined parts and any and all electronic development. As of right now it is still in the beta stage; after our first live combat outing we have come to the conclusions some tweaks will be needed. Mostly the turret will need to be slowed down, and the turret shell needs to be thicker.... it now looks like hell. It is only .030 aluminum I didn't expect it to survive but I had to use it for the sake of how cool it looks.

Here is the fun parts...... It all started in March 2013 when I spied a craigslist add for a cheap electric wheel chair with a warning of "It can no longer be used as a normal wheelchair but functions perfectly." I called the guy and found out he was/is a movie prop house car builder and was looking to make money back on a movie that bombed that he built the wheel chair for to do wheelies. The movie was called "Harold" and it is terrible.... Follow the link to see the chair.

After a quick negotiation and about four beers and another 3 hours of BS'ing about cars a price was set and it got jammed in the back of my truck and on its way home. Here is is the day it came home. We took a bunch of stuff off at the guys garage so I could get it in the back of my Xterra.





The start of frame welding.


Gen Alpha frame design.


Frame on chassis.


Turret bearing test mount on 3/8ths lexan top plate.. the bearing was a dumpster find, I have no idea what is is actually from but it was the right size and worked great.


Alpha turret and frame.


This about where is came to a screeching halt.... We couldn't get the steering to work and abandoned the project because we had a dead line we couldn't. meet. It sat this way from about May of last year till November when we picked it back up.


Starting in December the massive redesign started We have called it Gen 1 but is really is the Beta version. We whacked off the tip of the frame and made it flat. It would be easier to work with and stronger.. How much stronger? I parked my truck on it and it didn't budge. Its a brick.


Then I found a High BAy light shell so we had our turret shell test fit of what I can all fit in there.... this picture has come back to haunt us.


Bare top plate and turret plates.


Top plates and turret plates in aluminum wood skin layer down.


Ion mounted.


Tank mounted. Thats a 90 4500


Machined big barrel plugs!


Gun mounts complete


Dome Test Fit.

Well here we are a year and half later... completed and testing at my house before packing up a day before the event where we are going to do our first "combat" run. Two guys, countless beers, lots of metal splinters, much blood loss and several head aches.



Later that day at the field for a terrain test.


And our mission patch.



Videos to be forth coming!

In the end we build a monstrosity. The UGV, or "Raubtier" as we are calling it tanks in at 250 pounds, has it sides clad in a layer of .060 6061 aluminum, .25 ply wood and .125 lexan. It takes hits like a champ. The turret not so much but Gen 2 will be bent and welded .190 aluminum and will take hits and shrug them off....

How beefy is this thing? Well some idiot decided to tackle the thing on the field... like you do... Well he had to be carted off the field after he dislocated his shoulder.... I will not clean off the aqua colored smear on the side panel from his Dye mask... idiot. Another group of dim wits even flipped the thing and it was it could still be rotated just not recovered. Did I say there was to many morons at the field that day?

I just started work on a major turret re-design that will be stronger, and house alot more paint..

That and I am debating putting roll bars on it so it can self right... to many idiots have tackled this thing and some have even flipped it. That one person was thrown out of the field for that move. What he thought he was going to do I don't know.

Side note if your going to do something stupid make sure your not part of a team that didn't get kicked out because they will be in misery for the rest of the event.

Also we have started building a smaller higher speed pair of drones that will be single man usable with small amounts of paint and a camera system...

Those will be made under the names "Stiel" and "Jager". The larger bot "Raubtier" is a monster to move around to events at 250 pounds we need the both of us to run them but little guys should only come in at 50 too 60 pounds a pop and have a pair of 5 horse power electric scooter motors. These will be for high speed striking.

Needless to say we are learning as we go... as far as we know we have been the first group to actively field remote control tanks on this scale.

Nice work. I haven't seen this before.

So how do you get a drone out?

With the way idiots react to this thing mid field...mostly tackling it I don't want to put a laptop in it. Plus live fire so much more fun.
