Mikrosheise Air Force's new hover vehicle: the Tranquilizer
About this creation
The Tranquilizer is MAF (Mikrosheise Air Force)’s handiest air vehicle. Besides being used as a test vehicle for teleportation, the Tranquilizer gets its name from chasing down sluggish air or ground vehicles and maiming their main weapons until the heavier equipment comes in to destroy it completely.
The single-manned Tranquilizer is powered by a single lbeam rocket and is maneuvered by the pilot with the help of gravitational pull. The vehicle stays airborne by means of a PBC leveler which is quiet enough to allow the Tranquilizer to sneak up on opponents unnoticed.
The Tranquilizer’s weapons are comprised of a head canon mounted on the front to resemble a nose; two rapid-fire machine guns mainly for distraction; and a homing missile mounted underneath the fuselage (see last photo).
Though the Tranquilizer is lightly armed compared to the vehicles they maim, a Tranquilizer never fights alone. A hoard numbering 50 to 100 Tranquilizers at a time is the only way to get the job done successfully. A Tranquilizer pilot is not usually expected to return, so Tranquilizer training courses are neither picky nor expensive.
The Tranquilizer is a considerably quiet aircraft (despite its top speed at 127 mph) and might one day make its way to the commercial market. Say goodbye to motor scooters! The Tranquilizer is also a very safe aircraft, and the worst possible incident imaginable is purposely flipping the aircraft over. This would never happen accidentally (except in high altitudes with strong winds), thanks to symmetry sensors on each corner of the aircraft. The “ears” on the front of the aircraft help in lift and banking.
The MAF currently operates 14 Tranquilizers, 14 pilots, 28 Tranquilizer mechanics, and 28 backup pilots. 50 Tranquilizers are currently on order (thanks to the Lego Company’s police motorcycle), though the original fleet was expected to be roughly 100 before budget cuts had to be forced by the MAF committee. Also, the Circuit is planned on being its replacement some time in 2008 or 2009.
a great sabateur!! awsome job, this is a useful asset to any army.
I like it

I love the simplicity. The design is great. I would give you a 5/5 if you would do a little more detail where the front wheel used to be, not a lot, just a little something to fill up that space. But otherwise, an excellent creation...kinda reminds me of the police bikes on Judge Dredd, your's is better though.
