Vehicles and technology by Spartan Military Technologies, or SPARTECH.
About this creation
A Spartan Military Technologies (SPARTECH) AFV (Amphibious Fighting Vehicle) designed especially for navigating and fighting in swampy areas, areas with small rivers and lakes, and sand. Nicknamed "crocs" because of their intended terrain. Large, deep-lugged tires and serious ground clearance help wade through deep muddy ground that a tank would get hopelessly stuck in. It can go in deep water, but it doesn't go very fast or have much control. 4 wheel drive and a 300hp diesel motor give it plenty of power. Big headlights and winches on the front and rear light the way and help pull it out of trouble, or other vehicles. Armed with a single 50cal. machine gun and a crew of two, with space for supplies, tools and weaponry.

Rear axle suspension.


Front axle suspension. The black droid arms are simulating steering arms.


Bottom different view. You can see the 4WD driveshafts (between the silver suspension arms).


Another view of the hood. The light grey thingy is the raised air intake.

The 50cal. machine gun. The grey thing is the ammo container.


Another front view.


FOURTH WALL:
This started as a new technique for suspension, which got out of hand. :P Also something to use my limited dark tan collection. AFV was NOT intended to relate to America's Funniest home Videos, the acronym was incidental. And while I'm prattling, the Endor troopers make excellent modern soldiers. I wish I had got two more of the battle packs.


Please rate and comment

EDIT: Front page! Yeah!

I agree with you that the underneath is cool. There's some really clever and intricate work gone into attaching the wheels: looks great!

I would say you ripped off the Warthog, but if you think about it; the Warthog is just the most popular jeep-with-turret. Good vehicle. I like how you did the hood: not so smooth, but it looks 'technical' which I like. >Eric

Quoting Jesse Long Also, out of curiosity, but did you ever visit the place in Minneapolis where they build custom LEGO military sets as well as have a big train display? You should go take a visit here sometime as well as to the LEGO Store in the Mall of America in Bloomington.
I would really like to visit some places like that, maybe once I am 18 and have some extra time and money I will!

This is indeed a good build and I also admire your techniques that you used here on this build, too. It is also a shame that the military in the USA has not utilized a similar vehicle for desert, swamp, and otherwise muddy or difficult to pass through parts of this country for use in its armed forces.

Quoting JS Can Pretty cool. The suspension is just looks right, it doesn't actually have working suspension?
Yes, it's just for looks, but it actually does have a bit of springiness.

This is cool! I like how you used those lightsaber handles to look like suspension! Excellent shape of the vehicle and very nice greebles and such for underneath the vehicle!
