I remember during an OP, we had one of those Yamaha Rhinos to carry stuff from point A to point B and our goal was to stop it. Pretty fun building road blocks and such but when all our '203s went down, not too much fun and the owners of the field were getting pissed because the driver was going off-road. Keep in mind this is on an mountain, so the road is the only flat piece and everywhere else if covered in trees.

I know there have been many cases of thank like things being used for paintball scenarios. You will probably get more useful search results for paintball tank.
I have heard of cases where 'mechas' where used. Essentially its a guy in a suit of armor who has very specific engagement rules and can only be killed by specific launchers. Certainly gets the imagination going. a-wink.gif

In SoCal at Jericho Lake Elsinore they have tons of retired military vehicles we use, good fun. It can be dangerous if you don't have experienced users or even "refs" operating the vehicles.

In combat? No, it'll be cool but trucks might have a hard time calling their hits after a bunch of shower grenades bounce off them xD
But for transportation or a big part of a scenario? Multiple times at Wert's mentioned Jericho:Lake Elsinore, crowded days are sometimes a pain, but having them in larger scenarios are super fun.

I've had to deal with an APC with machine gun fire coming from the roof of it, twas a bust. Like I said, if your planning on playing with vehicles be very very careful. Always use roads or paths where you can see whats going on around you and don't go fast, hitting somebody would be terrible.

I've heard of that place. Imagine shooting from it.

Rental fees must kill though. Heli fuel can't be cheap.

I remember a thread from Airsoft Pacific (they were discussing an OP that involved a helicopter) where someone said shooting plastic BB's out of a helo is near impossible in terms of accuracy because of the air around the vehicle is constantly moving even in a suspended state midair or when on the ground while the propellers are still moving, or something like that >_>

And yes, the rental wasn't cheap at all.

Lol. A Geo.

I remember seeing a picture somewhere of someone driving a maroon 4-door Chevy Blazer (totally stock, no off-road enhancements) through a forest. All passengers had airsoft guns, and the back was wide open to allow the riders a quick hop off.

Seriously. I think if you were to have a dedicated Airsoft vehicle, your best bet would be one of these old knockers. They're dirt-cheap, plentiful, and nothing high-tech or modernized with them. Someone with basic car knowledge could keep one running fairly well.

US Army CUCV M1008. These were the light all-purpose 4x4's used up until not long ago. They were all over the place before, now they remain to do the grunt work so that humvee's aren't pulled away from where they are needed most.

I've wanted one just for the heck of it. They're diesel engines with no damned fuel injection or computer-regulated crap under the hood. This makes for very easy upkeep. If I ever got one, I would be more than willing to use it at an airsoft game if allowed. Parts are plentiful and cheap, too.

Typically they come straight off the base, so to speak, and the only thing the military keeps are the heavy duty wheels and tires, but civilian market replacements for those are easy to find. Good wheels and set of Goodyear Wranglers ought to keep an old M1008 rolling through most terrain.

I'm not saying buy any pickup and take it out into an airsoft game. I would never take my Blazer into an airsoft field. Doing that would seriously wreck any typical vehicle that hasn't been outfitted with off-road equipment.

My friends and I used a golf cart once. It was pretty comical because the cart has a tony the tiger paint job on it.

Nobody had launchers, so we just said that if the driver got hit it was dead, or if the gunner got hit they had to respawn. Worked out well, because the cart provides lost of protection from the front, but hardly none from the side.

It was good flanking practice.

I've only been to a handful of events where vehicles were used. One being based off Black Hawk Down, the other being a Military "checkpoint" type of game. Both went very well with no injuries (granted the people driving were staff of each field). My old team almost set up a LE game, which we practiced 'deploying' from vehicles. Mainly mine because at the time I was driving a P71 Crown Vic with red and white strobes in the back, and flashers in the headlights/tail lights. The game ended up falling through since there weren't enough people interested.

(Note; at the time I was EMT-B and it was 100% legal for me to own those items on my personal vehicle. We were also practicing on private property far away from any prying eyes)

You could just buy a small pick-up truck with an eight foot bed and simply make a wooden box on the back for protection. You don't need a vehicle outfitted with off-road equipment. Unless you are going through deep mud or snow, you don't need any modifications to the vehicle. I wouldn't get a truck that big, a quarter ton tends to do much better in the woods, when we cut down trees for firewood it's always the big, raised up, 30inch wheel, 3/4 ton redneck truck that gets hung up or unable to move because of trees. Even a large go-kart would work well.

Knowing what I know about vehicles, I personally would only drive through the woods in a truck older than 1990. For example, the frame, axles and suspension of the old Chevy C/K10, C/K20, C/K30 and full-size Blazer styles are dang-near indestructible. They're perfectly suited to running around an airsoft field.

I'd agree completely with you, shlunka, if airsofting with a vehicle didn't totally beat the hell out of it.


And I really gotta ask.. where the crap do you get a Browning M2 in airsoft?

Vehicle food for thought the legal aspect...


The only issues with vehicles is safety. Insurance companies see them as a liability.

Usually a rep will write up the safety precautions before allowing them...

Operator must 18+ and have valid driver's license, and be qualified to operate the vehicle safely. This includes safety equipment, procedure and operations. Know the boundries of the AO (Area Operations).
Onboard equipment: Fire extinguisher, 1st Aid kit, Communications equipment, Map and or GPS.
Set a maximum speed limit. If possible a throttle governor to prevent the vehicle from going too fast.
The exhaust system must be intact and interior must be properly vented.
Strobe light on top of vehicle. This indicates whether or not the vehicle is in play or not.
Horn and or siren. Horn to signal anyone around the vehicle it is about to move. Siren for emergencies.
Warning Signs on vehicle: Not a Step, Do not Stand here, Do not crawl under, Do not climb onto, Hot surface area.
Extra viewing capabilities. People love to use a vehicle as cover, if the vehicle moves you can crush someone. (We had a APC tank at one event and it had several onboard cameras for front, side and underneath viewing.) Baby monitors work great for this application.
Extra Rules: Do not drive into smoke or screened areas, Do not ride ON a vehicle in motion, Seatbelts for driver passenger RTO, Occupants in flatbeds cannot stand while vehicle is in motion.


Insurance provider who protects the land owner from personal injury lawsuits will have the final say in vehicle use.

You have to be very careful when adding vehicles to events. You must hold a safety meeting, and record it, so anyone involved with the vehicles operation fully understands the consequences of safety.

1. Minors at events.
2. Passenger falls off/out of the vehicle.
3. Driving thru a smoke cloud and hitting someone.
4. Someone hiding near the vehicle, and gets run over.
5. Carbon monoxide seeping into the passenger compartment.
6. Vehicle running over someone hidden in tall grass/under cover.
7. Riding on the vehicle clinging to a unsecure point.
8. Vehicle catches on fire.
9. Vehicle causes a brush fire. (Hot exhaust on dry grass.)
10. Vehicle becomes disabled or stuck in remote location.
11. Vehicle gets lost.
12. Unqualified vehicle operator.
13. Vehicle moving too fast.
14. Airsoft or Smoke grenade is thrown into vehicle.
15. Vehicle destroying property, creating ruts, knocking down trees, etc.

Someone gets hurt, the vehicle operator, vehicle owner, event organizer, and the land owner can all be liable.

Getting charged with "Reckless endangerment" or "Reckless endangerment of a child" and you can face thousands of dollars in lawsuits and incarceration.

Nice pictures Rainman. What was the deal with the canoe? Were people allowed to shoot at you? Or were you off limits?


Yep, Anyone in the canoe was an active player, although they were staff roleplayers (safety reasons). No one engaged them that scenario since they never found them. But man I would be pissed once I shot them and found out I had to go swimming for the crate they were carrying! a-laugh.gif
