MK I Sniper Tank UGV
The Sniper Tank is the first combat-specific unmanned ground vehicle in the United States military. The idea is to create a mechanical version of the infantry sniper designed to shoot farther and hit harder yet be small with high mobility. Primary goals include counter-sniper and critical anti-material missions (ex. tank treads, radio antennas, power generators, rocket/missile launchers, etc). The MK I has a 25mm sniper cannon and carries two Hellfire missiles. The 25mm cannon can fire a variety of shells and has an effective range of around 3000yd. The Hellfires have a range up to 8 miles. In Iraq the MK I has had excellent success against insurgents in the counter-sniper role. Traditional ways of countering snipers involve infantry assault or airstrikes. The Sniper Tank's 25mm round and advanced optics (zoom, night vision, infrared, thermal, etc) has allowed it to shoot through multiple walls and reinforced structures to hit its target at long range.
About this creation







The soldier getting ready to fire, checking his helmet camera screens.


"Wrong button, wrong button!!"

The MK I can turn its "head" in numerous directions.

The battalion ID patch on the cannon side. The clear 1x1 on the sides are cameras/sensors.







This is a another variation. This one is used as weapons support for troops. Useful in providing cover fire and also capable of engaging slow low flying aircraft.

Quoting Matt The Backward One Hey Cerb, how'd you like to join the U.N.E.? [http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/154] I think you'd seem pretty good in it.
Thanks for the offer. I don't really do the this-side-vs-that-side thing. I'm going to have to turn you down for right now, nothing personal. Thanks for checking out my MOC's by the way.

Hey thanks, glad you like it. This is one of my favorite builds so far. I think this one has solid real-world applications if it could be built for real.
