OMG, I don't visit the technic area much, but damn, this is cool. I'm amazed that you can do all that with remote control. I'd love a video of it in action? Although I know not everyone is that inclined. I certainly am not.

Awesome job though, this seriously has to be the coolest technic thing I've seen.

Now, THAT is WICKED! I love the rotating missile turret, and it's very accurate in shooting the Technic Competition Arrows! Maybe it could be used against invading hordes of Bionicle creatures! :laugh: TLG would NEVER offer something like this as an official set, but it's cool that you did it.

The "Type 63" Multiple Rocket Launcher (MRL) is a Chinese military application. It's described at http://www.sinodefence.com/army/mrl/type63.asp , and pictured on http://www.primeportal.net/artillery/david...ck/type_63_mrl/ . Great job in reproducing this vehicle!

Very cool! I love the ripple fire action! :laugh:

I'd love a video of it in action?

Why so many differentials? Good job, even though i dislike wepaons.

Thanks for your comments, I have offered a link on youtube so that you can see the MRLS in action:

(the same one a nice guy just inserted in his reply)

Thanks for your comments and background introduction as well! The image you provided is absolutely correct, but the introduction on sinodefence is talking about some other MRL, it is sometimes confusing. I didn't find the specification of Type63 19X130mm MRLS on web either, but did find an interesting video of it.

Very cool! I love the ripple fire action! :laugh:

Thanks, now I know how to insert the video.

Thanks for your comment, I used six differential gears in the MOC, four of them are for construction of automatic gear boxes, the idea was from TechnicBRICKS (http://technicbricks.blogspot.com/2009/11/week-techvideo-2009-48-automatic.html), it is worth trying.

Not being a fan of machines designed to hurt people, I do like this model. (And Lego doesn't hurt people :) ) . And works pretty well as well, nice.

Same here...don't prefer war mocs, but this vehicle has nice functions. :thumbup:

It would be better to me if it is a little bit covered with bricks, to be more like model team...with these functions that would be great.

Probably the coolest Technic vehicle I've ever seen. I love that weapons platform, with its 360 degree range. The functional steering wheel is a nice bonus too. :thumbup:

@ms09: After seeing the video and studying the picture below, I don't know how the individual Technic Competition Arrows are fired. There are gears near the "triggers", but how do you sequentially launch them using Power Functions? :look:

Thanks for your comment! From a pure view of technic, weapon is not a bad topic, and I prefer something which TLG will never issue as a set.

Thanks for your comment! Actually I always doubt whether it's really good to decorate a technic MOC with too many system bricks. Some of them look really brilliant, but in my mind they lose some sense of technic.

The trigger of fire action is a "Gear & Gear rack" structure, I hope the following images will answer your question:

As gears rotate, the gear rack will be pushed to move horizontally.

The prominent part of gear rack structure will push the triggers one by one.

So does the automatic gearbox work?

Yes, according to my point of view, it works pretty well. Different resistance will result in different speed and torque.

Well aimed, at the last shot. :thumbup: Really impressive Work!

How do you make CAV joints from Lego ?

Please tell me what CAV joints stand for first.

instructions please ..? (:

Maybe I have to learn ABC of LDD first.

Well, both practice and luck are needed :)

CAV means constant angular velocity. Those joints are used in steerable drived wheels in order to maintain rotational speed when turning.

Looks great! Nicely done!

What does the red driving ring and clutch gears on the turret do? Does it select between the weapons tilt and fire functions? Is there a motor that slides the driving ring, or is that done manually?

Excellent model, I especially like your mechanism for hitting the launch switches. This is also the first full-blown MOC I've seen with that differential CVT system, and it looks well implemented. :thumbup:

The CAV joint is realized mainly by two lego elements: technic Steering Arm with 4 Ball Joints and technic Steering CV Joint.

Thanks for your comments! You are right, the clutch gears are for mode switch between weapon tilt and fire function, it's manual.

Thanks for your comments! I find that you had a MRLS MOC too :) Could you please provide a video link of it?

I haven't actually taken any videos of it, although that might be fun to do at some point when I have time. The model is pretty old now, but I still have it built.

PS: I don't believe that Lego would issue a millitary technic set, it's a clear policy of TLG.
