Armored anti-personnel vehicle
An armored vehicle with two large gatling guns.
About this creation
The AAPV was created by the Lego Space Force Marines to protect and support infantry units. Armed with two 20mm six-barrel rotary guns, it is short-ranged but easily capable of annihilating enemy squads which pass into its field of fire. Shown here is the MK. I prototype in "testing range" colors of white and red; the MK. II version has a rear troop bay capable of carrying six people. The AAPV is at its best in urban warfare, where its small size allows it to negotiate streets that larger tanks can't handle, and its armored hull lets it survive ambushes that would kill off regular infantry.









Front view. I'm especially proud of the off-center hatch.









































Oversized gatling guns are perhaps the single most awesome-looking weapon ever invented. These guns are made from the assemblies that hold the rotors in place on that Technic tilt-rotor plane. I was picking it apart and noticed that when you removed one of the black discs from the front, the resulting piece looked like a gatling gun.










The hatch piece comes from a Rock Raiders vehicle that looks like a pickup go-kart on skis. It's exactly five studs wide. It opens to reveal a minifig inside, but the cockpit details are nothing special so I'm not putting them on the page.

Hadn't seen this one yet - The colors aren't perfect, but it's a very good tank. The best in it, in my opinion, is the front (with the hatch), and the turret is really good too.

This is really cool, I especially like the guns. Come check out my TAAV, it looks a lot like this. Good work!

Great use of the rock raider piece, it really defines the whole armored look of the vehicle. It also looks like it makes an awesome hatch. My only complaint is the color, but that's understandable if you have don't have a lot of pieces.

I'm not going to fault the color scheme, because the design is very good! I can relate with the limitations, because you and I have lives, we don't spend all our paychecks on thousands of dollars worth of lego sets, am I right?

Cool design! I like your use of 2x3 pins for the guns; and that bucket for the hatch. I might suggest a few less "main" colours for the colour scheme though... (replace white with gray, for example); but overall a good-looking machine.

Well, the body of the tank is alright. You put an excessive use of brightly colored studs. This woud be cooler if it was a hover tank than a "treaded" one.
