New vehicle for Tomytec to model - a bomb disposal machine

Recommended Posts

At least I think it's for bomb disposal and the like. Came across it a while back, fortunately not in action (there was some kind of police show going on).

It looks like a vehicle out of Metal Slug 😛

 

It's probably a mine sweeper perhaps? or something to send into radioactive spaces or dangerous situations, however, i observed that a driver is required behind which might not be suitable for dangerous scenrios...

It's more of a "thinkering with a ready-to-blow bomb from a relatively sufficient safe distance away" kind of machine. They're usually operated by a Bomb disposal squad member in a 35Kg-heavy EOD suit.

I'm surprised they don't just use a tracked ROV like most do, would have thought a good VR headset and a couple of cameras on a pan/tilt mount would give the operator a decent view with some depth perception. Plus you could overlay useful details like plans, wiring diagrams for whatever the bomb has been hidden in, etc.

I think it's a rig to be used at the airport by immigration officers for handling foreigner's passports after the the travel ban is lifted.
