Military Skateboard – DTV Shredder

Now this is awesome:

Looks like it could really help soldiers out, seeing as it is so versatile.  Looks pretty tough too.  Needs MOAR guns though.

I wonder how much something like that would be for civilians? If its in the range of the price of a quad you can count me in.

Lots more info and videos at the BPG Werks website – HERE

LMAO, I’m always amazed at the toys that defense contractors can come up with, what politicians can spen tax payer money on and what military an LE departments can justify. That’s something I would want to get ten miles out on and break down! Stick to a decent motorcycle, like a 650 dual sport bike! Guess it hekps recruitment to have toys for the kids.

I agree with the fact that the motorcycles are proven, but I still like seeing innovation in any field. If nothing else, it might drive some improvement to be made in the design of the current style equipment.

Regular soldiers will never get anything like this, ever. I’ve seen the distinct possibility of having fun with that cool little toy, and in the military fun is VERBOTTEN!!!! NIEN NIEN NIEN NIEN!!!

Generals might get one, but they’re considered demigods, so don’t count. Seriously, they are. It’s in the regs somewhere.

That looks pretty cool, but not as comfortable. Also the handle part with the controls on it looks like it could break easy if you bailed. Any idea how much they are? (I can’t see it on the site)

But for snow only — wouldn’t do us much good here in Phoenix.

I could see this being used heavily for CasEvac in built up areas, or triage managment. The remote control capability seems well suited for some EOD missions as well.

I want one! :D

Still, the exhaust pipe looks kinda fragile-located. I hope it holds.
