Tank Paintball

I was going through my pictures folder and came across a few pics from last year that were taken at a tank paintballing session. In the summer, it's something that we, and by we, I mean a whole group of friends, love doing.

Basically, it's you and your mates in your tank verses your other mates in the other tank, and it's a cracking way to spend an afternoon. The tanks themselves are 432's with modified fox turrets on them. You'll notice in one of the pics, the large gas cylinder mounted on the back of the turret. This holds the compressed air used to fire the 40mm paintball cannon.

Here's a couple of pics, sorry there's none of the actual battle, but everything's locked down during the actual battle for safety reasons. Anyway, here's the pics :-





So, if you're anywhere near Leicester, checkout Tank Paintballing at Chaos Paintball. It really is as much fun as it looks.

Seriously dude, you have to let me know if you ever go again. That would be awesome, I myself do airsoft and 24/48 hour wilderness gaming with airsoft guns, but to paintball with tanks, that would top the lot. lol.
