Your vehicle?

posted by Foinikas on - last edited - Viewed by 2K users

What kind of a vehicle would you want to have in the Zombie Apocalypse?

An RV?A jeep?A van?A fast car?A truck?

I don't wanna hear any stupid replies like "a tank" or "a bullet-proof car" and bullocks.

A Land Rover jeep would be fine for me but if there are more than 3-4 people a nice RV would be awesome!

    I find it hilarious that you think a tank or other military vehicle is a "stupid or weird" answer. Someone answering the millenium falcon is a "stupid/weird" answer. Using a tactical/fighting vehicle to survive in a post apocalyptic world only makes more sense than running around in say a corvette or a ferrari. You're going to run into highways that are blocked or unpassable in any "normal" vehicle. Having a vehicle built to be able to handle running into and pushing through wrecks like that makes a lot of sense to me. Seeing as how there are countless numbers of retired military in the U.S. you are bound to run into at least on survivor who would know something about the operation/maintenance of those types of vehicles. My family alone has a retired army tank mechanic and an active duty Stryker mechanic in it. So I believe I would be able to keep both types of vehicles running until the supply of diesel runs out and seeing how most people would be running for gasoline power vehicles I don't think it would run out too quickly.

  • Seriously mate,where will the average Joe find a tank and how will he drive/use it?You might be an exception but realistically speaking the vast majority of people will go for jeeps,vans,RVs and small cars :P

  • Now a fast car is a good idea

    I don't know what country you live in but in the U.S. as far as where the "average Joe" would find a tank is A: a military base(and in the U.S. there are states that have multiple bases within it's borders) B: In the event of a ZA the military would be called out to combat the hordes of undead attacking, some would turn some would run leaving behind the Tanks, APCs, HumVees and other vehicles driven. Driving a tank takes some getting used to but can be mastered within a few hours(getting used to the T handle controls would be the biggest match), driving a Stryker is pretty much like driving a car gas pedal, brake pedal and steering wheel and the major advantage to either is they are completely self contained no windows that can be broken in too easily leaving occupants safe to drive away and crush any zombies in their path. As far as everyone else grabbing cars, jeeps, vans, RVs, etc. all those run on gasoline leaving the diesel supplies for me and my Tank/APC which runs on a Duramax Diesel and an Allison 6speed Transmission(Which is the same combination installed in most 1 ton General Motors Pickup Trucks So anyone with knowledge working on those in the dealerships would have a leg up on maintenance).

    You asked what WE would use.

    I would use a tank. I was very good at what I did and I'm sure I could train others to use a tank as well. Yes, getting diesel or jet fuel would be tough, but really if I had a tank I'm quite confident I could take what I wanted. The problem is getting one and getting it stocked with ammo and fuel, but once I had that I believe keeping it resupplied would be possible.

    Now, say I had never spent time in the army on tanks then I would go for a large truck. F350 or something similar or an Up-Armored Humvee.

  • @Devlonir said: Leg wounds are near death warrants in the ZA anyway. Doesn't matter what kind of vehicle you use. You will need help from someone else to reliably get away regardless.

    Also, really bad leg wounds also cause you to not really be able to drive a car as well. So point invalidated.

    Also, many bikes have carriage frames where they can hold someone else in the back. These would be the bikes best suited for the ZA (not the 1000 dollar mountainbikes) So you can help someone injured back to your camp, as well as use it to carry supplies.

    The Biggest problem in a Zombie apocalypse is food so
    No food= No energy
    No Energy= How the fck are you gonna use a bike ??
    Bike is useless= You have to walk biggest mistake.
    You have a car?= can use it as a mini house.
    You have a car?= only press gas you dont need energy for that.
    out of gas?= Then your death but its the same for a bike for a bike you need energy for a car gas What's the different ?!?!
