Bumblebee hmmwv

Post by ohiohmmwv » Sat Jun 29, 2019 5:56 pm

Saw this hmmwv on the Bumblebee Transformers movie. I haven’t seen a good grill like this. Looks like rope? Anyone see this setup before?

Always make the FNG straight out of basic go chase the wire to bring it back for the next missile.

The wire from the missile is super thin.

George, that's a Transformers TOW missile. Everything is big.

Ok, I figured it out. I don’t think it’s original service unless the army had an electrified harpoon gun. That was the weapon on the turret along with 2 50 cals

To clarify for future surfers...IT'S a TOTALLY FAKE WEAPON.....
Not a TOW missile launcher, Not Military, Hollywood fantasy ala Star Trek Phaser, Photon Torpedo, etc. no basis on reality.

Just for clarification.

With all the extra stuff crammed in there ejecting spent cartridges must be pretty exciting all by itself!
