The Cobra Diamondback by A.V.A.C. HISS Tank Custom

Cobra Diamondback hiss tank

A.V.A.C.’s Lab does it again! The Custom Cobra Diamondback by HISSTANK.com customs master A.V.A.C.

The Cobra Diamondback is Cobra’s answer to battlefield logistical challenges. It delivers and hauls away troops, equipment, and vehicles. Whilst loading and unloading, the body lifts from the chasis and hinges forward to protect itself in prone mode. Upon lifting the top, weapons stowed within allow the operators and troops to use in defense while performing the duties of delivery and pick up. The body hinges up and down but locks in place once your ready to roll and be on the road again. This protection format is based on the ASP, but it’s self-propelled and doesn’t need towed, it does the towing.

Many more images Cobra Diamondback after the jump. The Cobra Diamondback is driven by “Flatbed”. A licensed CMV “Cobra Motor Vehicles” operator. Flatbed is a mean and cynical heavy machine operator. He originally took up truck driving to support his passion for Theatre and the Ballet. A disappearance and now assumed dead performance arts critic lead to the suspect “Flatbed” quitting the theatre and resorting to drive for COBRA full time. But his love for ballet still burns, only now it’s rubber and hot lead on the battlefield asphalt.

“Bed is actually quite a good dancer, his feet know just where to land and roll, he’s quite graceful, claims the Baroness, however, she continues, “It’s the way he dances with those 18 wheels on the open road is why Cobra hired him”.

    Damn, man. That is friggin awesome!

    1. Phew! That's some sweet plastic work. A lot of cutting, sanding, and gluing, I'm sure.
    2. Love that tiger-stripe pattern. Great paint work; looks clean.
    3. Haha, that's a MAN'S beard on Flatbed.
    4. Great "production values" on the presentation!

    Thanks Nighthawk, the chassis and trailer are from the TRU Rocker Hauler playset and the body is a modified HISS Tank. The rest is scratch built and various parts.
