If you like rocket technology, check this out.

Complete craziness from the 50's, back when engineers drove corvettes to work and smoked over blueprints.

There was plans to make it a space battleship. You can find it in the novel "Footfall", a 60s sci-fi were nuclear powered tanks roam free.

Oh, yeah. I heard about Project Orion. It was a rocket that flew by detonating nuclear bombs behind to propel it. I heard it could reach saturn in like 9 years, but don't quote me on that...

first, the rocket :)

 

 

now, the notes since my handwriting is terrible :)

the plan:

 To use the gun from the P1000 Ratte with a modified 1777MM shell as my shuttle. since this gun cannot possibly get the depression to shoot up, i am using a Jagdtiger with a modified shell to increase bounce to 100% at this angle (see RNG as I worked out the numbers with him including the 24 % speed loss when bouncing)

 

notes:

the "launch" section-

-RNG bounce assist takeoff (loose 24 % speed on deflection)

-Jagdtiger

-extra angled shell for increased bounce chance to 100 %

 

on the "shell"

-T1 light tank turret "thrusters" (3 spares inside)

-extra angled for increased bounce to 100%

-Space tog

 

 

The "Ship"

-ammo rack 37 MM shells (6000)

-17 Pdr Rounds (144 Pcs) --TOG accurate :)

-egress hatch

-zero G capsule

-zero g capsule allows captain to survive bounce

 

i think that sums it up....

happy tanking everyone :)

 

Wow, thank you for the explanation and thank you for including such a detailed diagram of your tank rocket launch!

Wish I could spend a bit more time on this, but leaving for Gencon tomorrow, hope you (wargaming.net) have a booth there!

 

 

Love the DERP rocket TOG delivery system! :)

The Chocowagen American Tier 10+5 Arty shoots this rocket to Mars

Plan-

1.All equipment is put into the rocket/shell. 

2.Chicken (Commander)

   Bob The Builder (Engineer instead of Loader)

   Neill Armstrong (Driver)

   Are placed on the tip point of the rocket/shell.

3.The rocket/shell is then loaded into the huge arty gun targeting Mars.

4.Then a huge bang goes and the shell/rocket is launched into the air and into space.

5.The shell/rocket starts to slowly drop down.

6.Then, at the bottom, about 20 Tiger 1`s get ammo racked creating enough thrust to get to Mars faster.

7.The top point detaches making the Bovington Tank Museum stolen tanks launch to and hit other planets.

8. The rocket/shell lands safely at WG`s office (in Mars).

9.The T1 (God Mode) Cunningham takes all the gold from the vault including the PZ B2 and BT SV.

10. The gold is then taken back to Earth for Bob the Builder and Chicken to use.

End Of Plan 

 

Sounds amazing! :) Is there any way that you could make your picture bigger?

My favorite part about this design are the detachable ammo racks :)  Creative use of traditional "weaknesses"!

Last minute submission?

 

Ok, so. Lets do a crash course in rocketry. Nosecone is pretty basic, it's the front and pointy end. Then we have a tank, looks like maybe a KV-1S, but tanks aren't exactly my thing. The fins stabilize the rocket in flight. The hamster is the most crucial part, he runs on his wheel and provides the power of Love and Friendship to the Magic box, where it is turned into fuel for the rocket. The engine is pretty self explanatory, using the power of space magic to turn oxygen and hydrogen into water with enough explosive force to propel the rocket. The booster rockets help Stage 1 lift off with standard APCP. After the boosters run out they detach, and after the hamster gets hungry he goes on strike and Stage 1 separates from Stage 2. Stage 2 engines guide the payload to its target, where the KV-1S lands on it and kills it with its ridiculously OP top gun.

 

I hope my presentation was informative and I made no mistakes.

 

Magic to power the rocket is excellent! :)

Here's my entry and here's how it works:

 

 

A large piece of giant bacon is placed in compartment Number 2 that it's attached to the tanks that propel the rocket, as we all know tanks feed on bacon so this works perfectly for our rocket, the rocket carries the secret weapon: a giant D.W.2 that will be driven by our crew: a giant cat. Arriving to the planet where the D.W.2 will eventually be placed, the cat proceeds to eat half the giant bacon to survive not forgetting to leave enough of it to travel back home once the mission is complete.

 

 

Wow, that is beautiful. You're quite an artist! :)

Stage one of the rocket is powerd by IS7  booster that are designed to take it go about 45miles into the air then they break away.

Stage two is a more conventional rocket powered by 105 octane premium rocket fuel that carries the rocket to about 70 miles up then breaks away burning up on its re-entry.

Stage three Carriest the rocket the reast of the way from earth to mars before spliting open and sending the TOG II landing capsule toward the surface. parachutes slow it's decent to a a safe touchdown speed. After it lands if functions like a mini base for resupply.

THe vickers Light Tank Mark 6 is then used as an exploratory vehicle with the a safe supply of Improved combat rations, chocholate, cola, Onigiri, Tea, Pudding

 

Why take a whole tank when only the turret matters?

 

I love the fact that you took rations into consideration :)

Closing this contest thread for judging.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of the secret plans to deliver tanks to every planet in our solar system!  :)
