I've been working on tanks lately, and I thought that, hey, what if you could flip a tank with another tank's cannon? 

Rules:

1. The tank that you are flipping needs to survive with no or minimal damage

2. Both vehicles need to have 6 (at a minimum) wheels

3. Both tanks must have a cannon weapon (not a high powered gun)

4. Weapons MUST be from BDArmory

5. The tank to be flipped MUST be upside down or on its side, not just a little hop.

 

Have fun and post the results in the comments!

I wonder has anyone done a stock vs bda tank battle?

That seems intresting. . . Although I think the BDA tank would win.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!

I might try this, I’ve got quite a few tanks lying around.

Which one? The fliping or BDA VS stock?

Waitasec, "Quite a few"? I get the feeling I'm not the only one who set kerbin on fire. . .

Nope! Not me! Never built a weapon in my life!

Well then. I have found people with more weaponry than I have. . . NOT FOR LONG!!!!!!!! Maybe, if I remember to stop setting up that comunications net. . .

NO! B9 HAS HUGE PIECES, SO I'LL MAKE A HUGE INTERPLANETARY WARSHIP!!! MUAHAHAHAHAH!

(Tries to closing door to the SPH to hide my massive tank army and squishes a kerbal in the process. kerbal paste everywhere and door refuses to shut.)    Well darn.:/

I already have a fleet in orbit. If the weapons can’t kill you the lag can. (Closes railgun silo)

So far, my efforts to complete this challenge have been stymied by the fact that I've built my tanks much too realistically to flip. Too wide, too low, too angular. Best I can do without causing a lot of damage is to make it slide sideways a little. Can I go a little more... unconventional with tank designs, @Dragonwarp?

Yes. The tanks don't have to be realistic. For example: Tank with lots of space below it? sure. tank with 5 foot thick armor? why not?

also, you dont need to hit it straight on. you could have a tank with tons of armor on the bottom and hit the ground below it.

Doesn't really matter where I shoot, I've just been building heavy bricks of armor in conventional shapes, and they don't flip well. I ask about unconventional designs because I've got an idea for a half-sphere that rolls onto its flat top without too much effort. Narrow wheel base, rounded angles, should hopefully flip nicely.

My other thought was to build a VTOL that could carry the tanks to the top of the VAB, and shoot one of them off the top. :P Maybe I should do both?

Sounds cool. Though both would be slightly insane awesome! Please post the results, 'cause that sounds awesome.
