seeing as how important artillery is on the modern battlefield im thinking about buying a black powder cannon/howitzer/mortar and mounting it to a rototiller motoblok like pic related as a self propelled motor gun carriage
i think mounting it with a mortar or howitzer for shoot and scoot would be best
also black powder coehorn mortars are only like $400-$900
you guys have no idea how much i need my own self propelled artillery
the gun/mortar could be mounted ontop of a spinning table in the bed of the trailer for full 360 degree fire arc
and with a 3 inch ordinance rifle or 10 pounder parrot you could reliably knock out many thin skinned armored vehicles
like it was a pseudo anti tank gun
I have a working tiller I don't use. I need to know more about converting this bitch into a wagon ASAP
weld a trailer hitch to the back get a trailer and moron rig a chair/bench to it
buy cannon and now you can have your own SPG
just imagine a batteries of dozens of these things just rolling around
Zased vehicle anon
very much so
my new favorite vehicle
talking with a family member about turning a snow blower we have into one for like $400
You're gonna want to upgrade the suspension
arent there some trailers with built in suspension
i could see needing that with the bp mortar since the force would go down straight into the trailer
were looking at a range of what like 6 kilometers is that worth it?
This is the range of a proper large caliber mortar. I don't think BP mortar with 2 inches of barrel can throw that far.
i was talking about the rifled guns mortars i think would be around 1km even shorter
man someone needs to design a bp mortar in modern form
how many men would it take to realistically run this thing?
In a perfect world, there will be no tax stamp on people arming themselves.
Considering what you'd actually spend to shoot any artillery piece, why would the $200 DD tax even be something to worry about? Proper full size US Civil War era artillery was burning at least 1/2 pound of powder per shot, or about $15 in powder alone at today's prices, with most of it in the 1-2 lb range which comes to $30-$60 in powder per shot. Modern full power (ie not the reduced range practice stuff with a max range of ~550 meters) 60mm practice shells set the government back $138 a piece (17 years ago, so they'll cost more today) and are not reusable.
COMMISSAR VANYA SEND IN THE NEXT WAVE >WE RAN OUT OF TANKS
SEND IN THE MOTOBLOKS
How much can one of those tow? The carriages those were mounted on weren't light and weighed about as much as the artillery pieces.
at least 1-2000 pounds
alot of these cannons are sub 500 pounds though
Indonesians figured it out how to weaponize these.
>Its a fucking UGV
I kneel Indonesia-sama
You could probably broadside someone with grapeshot out of a car window lol.
>Mr Tyrese, fire!
i do say charles did those morons give us a volley?
inb4 op goes on a school shooting with artillery
lol normally it's not the physical building that's in danger
Why not make an electrically fired chaingun black powder shotgun/canon with tin cans as shells and using a DeWalt to cycle it, alot more badass bruv
the bm--21 ghettograd
Nonetheless impeccably badass
Wouldn't the projectiles fly a little too slow to hit an armored vehicle at a distance and how will you carry enough ordinance to do enough damage with those?
I think weapomizing cheap drones with pipe bombs and other homemade explosives as well and learning how to make drone swarms is more useful.
turn the bench of the carriage into an ammo stowage
with friction primers the time to fire is instant
Yeah but what about all the fucking weight? How quick are these?
The only way I can see them used against an armored vehicle is if they're set up somewhere in advance waiting for the armored vehicle to enter a kill zone.
OP idea is ludicrious, but i want to point out that you have to think about the recoil and how the suspension will be hammered.
>he thinks it has an actual suspension
Wont have any suspension issues if you dont have one
this thread is gold
diid you forget that the tires are rubber donuts fiilled with air huuehuehuehhuehuehue
>that shell tumbling as it gracefully flies through the air
Is this a fucking edit?
