If you are ready to reenact Rommel's campaign in North Africa, vandalize any wall in sight or look like Atom Ant, here's the Paintball Panzer. At 3.4 x 4 x 6-foot it's not comparable with the 17-tonne FV432 paintball tank after the jump, but I would love to have this mini-me version anyway. Compare specs and prices after the jump. Spoiler: Rommel gets killed and VanGogh cuts his ear.
Here are the Paintball Panzer specs:
• Glass reinforced plastic (GRP) chassis. • An engine firewall. • A fully integrated, ready-to-fire paintballing gun. • A rollover bar. • A roll cage. • Choose from six colours for your mean machine. • Can be driven on UK roads further to meeting DVLA regulations. • Suitable for ages 15 years+. • Size: 106 x 122 x 183cm.
On the other side, here's that paintball FV432 in action: a 17-tonne armoured personnel carrier powered with a 800hp Rolls-Royce engine. These armoured vehicles have a rotating turret and a custom 40mm cannon that fires paint ammunition at a whooping 300 feet per second, which is actually lethal for humans but obviously not other tanks.
For just $150, you could play with six of these for two hours (trip to the UK not included.) On the other side, the Paintball Panzer has a $14,400 price tag. It will be yours for life, but 1) if you live in the UK, a Paintball Panzer will get you 192 hours of tank warfare with the real thing; and 2) if you live anywhere else, the same price will get you a few trips full of hardcore paintball action. Without a doubt, I would get the FV432 any day. Your pick, in the comments. [I want one of those via Born Rich and Daily Mail]
