Armadillo - Div30 Pickup (Obsolete)
Design Notes -Obsolete because of the quickly discovered rules-breaking problem of the armored mini-safe (note, I wonder if it actually conforms to real-world physics? This is a job for Myth-Busters!). But just look at the awesome picture. How I got all those itty-bitty boxes into the minisafes is crazy. I calculated that the effective armor would be F 497, B 460, L 840, R 630.
Why did I assume that the safes, all in the flatbed of a pickup, would instead surround the driver and all other components? It's not only that I used this adolescent rules-breaker (hey, I *was* an adolescent) but I used it wrong.
This won't be updated with the safes because it (a) can't be (the whole point of the vehicle was to exploit the sink), and (b) even if I keep the weapon system, the identity is locked into the illegal design.
OK, maybe I should...
