Theres a country in Ghanna that made these bizarre prototype military vehicles.

There’s a country in Ghanna that made these bizarre prototype military vehicles. A metal gear walker, and wacky looking tanks and helicopters as examples. Are there other 3rd world countries that make weird (and probably pretty bad) military shit? I wanna see more of this. And was there ever an update on these vehicles?

Video showing these off with no info

      bob semple would actually have killed japs and protected its crew from fragments, though probably not actual bullets. And was devised as an expedient conversion of existing on scene resources to military use in the face of potential imminent invasion.

      Comparing the two is literally comparing a the efforts of white and black. They're both shit made of scraps and bits, but one of them would have actually served a limited functional purpose, while the other is literally just cargo cult non-sense.

      If I were a jap infantryman with no tank support or AT weapons on hand bob semple would present a serious problem.

        Funnily enough, it would have, due to layered shaped iron giving it a near-constant “angle”, plus good depth.
        It wouldn’t have stood to armour, or AT guns, or worked as a tank, but for a blueprint less vehicle a farmer could build in a country with near no major machining industrial capacity at the time, it would have made a genuinely fearsome mobile pillbox.
        As much as it’s a meme, it’s arguably one of the most remarkable stories of military engineering.

          You're missing the elephant in the room though. The starting point of the Bob Semple was an existing crawler tractor, and those were not made by some random farmer. Ghana does not have existing Caterpillar tractors to modify into combat vehicles, they claim to make everything from scratch.

      Well this is unfair. The Bob Semple tank actually armed with moderately powerful rifles for the time.
      It isn't that outlcassed as you would think when it's biggest threat would be the Japanese Ha-Go and 47mm anti-tankguns. And realistically the Japanese would be using infantry first in an amphibious landing in New Zealand.

    Yeah, I hear they finally managed to replace the tape with hot glue but then they melted in the sun and the cardboard fell off.

      Some guys fricked around for fun in a workshop a decade ago and since then the internet has been obsessed with the idea that this is a legitimate programme because "hurr hurr africans r stoopid".

        It's more than that, the guy behind it is a literal con man, and these "weapons" have been appearing for years.

        >And the cult thing is no joke.
        Correct.
        He owns a company which supposedly builds and sells cars in Ghana, however that is a bit misleading as the cars it sells are really made as kits coming in from China and only the final assembly is done in Ghana. Kantanka motors, look it up.

    The guy who made these is a shady businessman/cult leader in a poor province who does crazy shit. I dated a chick from Ghana who was from the capital, and she'd never heard of him or his company even though he runs Ghana's only supposed car company. When I mentioned where this was happening she basically said "yeah that's out in the boonies." They were a British colony so English is the official language and the nice areas are pretty modern for Africa. She could have been American. Then I guess you go out into the country and it's ooga booga tribal stuff.

        The difference between rich and poor areas is a lot bigger in countries like this than in the US. It'd be like if the plains states were one big indian res where most people didn't speak english or know who the president was.

    There was no country. It was some weird cult who made these strange props. Never did hear why the cult leader thought that was a good idea — maybe he figured it would impress to the 60-IQ peasants and increase his numbers. Maybe it did?

    /k/ would like Ghana. Gays are illegal, the tourism industry is based around the slave trade, you don't have to learn a foreign language, you can build a Mad Max army out in the desert, and bang big booty black b***hes all day.

      Concerning the big booty black b***hes, they got nice faces? They gotta turn around and you have to talk to them at some point, but hey, I'm an old school romantic, so maybe that's just an issue for me.
