Tankers!

 

The M22 Locust was created as an airborne vehicle to drop onto the battlefield from the sky.  We want you to design and show us your own tank parachute that will successfully deploy a small tank into combat. We will choose and award our Top 5 favorites with 1,000 gold.

 

Here is an example of a parachute that I created to "fly" a paper Hetzer into battle:

How to join the contest:

  • Design and construct a tank parachute that will deliver a tank from the sky 
  • You can drop whatever tank that you would like to.  We chose a paper tank with a hidden nickel underneath it just to demonstrate something different
  • Take a video of your tank parachute with your gamertag handwritten on a piece of paper (clearly visible in the image) 
  • Share your tank drop in action by posting a Youtube link in this forum thread

 

Rules:

  • One entry per player
  • Each tank parachute must be created exclusively for this contest
  • Entries will be judged on creativity, quality, complexity, etc.
  • All videos can be posted using the "Embed YouTube Video" option found on your existing forum tools
  • Wargaming gains exclusive rights to the contest image when you post it on the forum, as outlined in the “10. User Generated Content” section of the Terms of Service

 

The submission deadline is Monday, July 7 at 06:00 PDT (July 7 13:00 UTC).

Does this mean you will be adding Dropships with reinforcements into the game(killsteak)? :trollface:

Shadow puppets are illogical, inflexible, and totalitarian.   Most people don't know this because the shadow puppets live in the shadows meddling in others lives usually without reason.   Even worse, they are hypocrites who allow no dissension to their tactics.

I'm sorry to say this HBFT, but would it be possible to add a piece of paper with your Gamertag on it in the video? :trollface:

haha +1 as well.  Unfortunately, I have been disqualified from the competition and can no longer win any gold. :(  No gamertag in the video, so no goldz for me!

Are we allowed to use the Paper model tanks from the Russian WoT Pages?

(Pretend this is part of my post because if I edit it the link will break)

Oh and if your wondering what I dropped it looks like this:

It was meant to look like the M22 Locust and the tank took me to make was 30mins long and the parachute took me another 30mins.

Yes, you are more than welcome to use any tank that you would like.  If you have a plastic, metal, paper, etc. tank that you would like to use, then you are more than welcome to use any of it.  I just arbitrarily chose a paper tank because I figured more people had access to it (and could thus include them in all of the fun)! :)

So...Making something for this event got out of hand really quickly. Started with just a small origami paper tank with a plastic bag parachute, and ended up with the following. It took 3 people: 1 to video(wife), 1 to hold the guide line up(neighbor), 1 to pull the Plane to launch the tank(Me), (and my Nephew was over to watch also) Hope you Enjoy! 

 

 

 

Slow Action Replay as it did happen quite fast. Landed tracks first and even equipped a Camo Net after landing. :tongue:

PS. Thanks for finally getting my wife to help me with one of these events! At first she wanted nothing to do with it, but after all the failed attempts, she stepped in to help video and enjoyed it! :great: +1 to you WG!

Edit: Leaving in original video until new video is done processing. Taking longer then expected.
