A stealth submarine piloted by monkeys. You just KNOW this is going to be a bad idea...
About this creation
Refuge in Audacity for the win?
Anyways, the Stoopid Monkeys have a... for lack of a better term, stealth sub now. It's shaped like a shark to make it sneakier. See, if it's underwater and it looks like a shark, it must be a shark. Plus, everything's worse with sharks. Moving along, the sub is captained by none other than Captain Redplume, of the Royal Exploratory Marines. It's the end of the world as we know it, indeed.
The sub itself is a Type-42 'Sneaky Bastard' stealh submarine, and has been in use by the R.E.M. for two years. The sub has three missile tubes each loaded with a single subnuclear Ballistic Assault Missile, or B.A.M. It is propelled by two Shinohara Dolphin class engines, each in an individually mobile and self contained engine nacelle. It is capable of reaching of total speed of 7 knots.
The sub has received a total of four design awards, all in the category of 'Worst Design of the Year'. From the same magazine. In the same year.
Built for the Lego Military Group's Annual Contest, in the category of Stealth Vehicle. This is probably the silliest entry in the entire contest...
And here we have the same image you were just exposed to, or the 'main photo'. Reposted so that you may revel in all of it's glory.
Yes, folks, Captain Redplume has returned. Our experts believe this was his first command, but they also told us Elvis had been abducted by the Frogs to perform at fancy parties.
Here's a nifty little side view for you. There aren't too many 'overview' shots for this creation, because it's mostly just a continuation of my love affair with this shark piece. This'll be hard to explain to the frogs...
Here you can see the sensors suite, which has some very important parts. First off, we have the 'Enemy-ship-detector-O-matic' and the 'Moving-picture-record-O-matic'. As you can see, the Monkeys are even worse with names than I am. Which is really saying something...
These are the ship's not-so-speedy parts. At any rate, they make it sink a little faster in the proper direction.
These are the missile tubes. They each store a single B.A.M. missile, and can only be fired on the surface. There's a reason for this, but most monkey captains don't figure it out until they've sunk their ship (Well, sunk it without it being able to rise) a few times.
The shark shaped hull, which is the key component to the sneakiness of the design. Theory: If it looks like a shark, it must BE a shark. Actuality: Hey, that shark's got engines. Let's shoot it, and sell the engines!
Here we see the assembled crew: Cap'n Redplume and his first mate, Bobo. Yes, Bobo CAN fit inside the sub. That's where he is for most of these shots, actually.
And finally, we see the sub in action. The target: A lifeboat full of frogs. The probability of success: 32.57848758%.
And that's it for this creation! Thanks for stopping by everyone, and have a great day!
If you'd like your little boat to make it out of here unharmed however, I suggest you leave a comment or rating ;)
Thank you all!
@Mudskipper: And you ain't seen nothin' yet!
@Finn: Not that I know of. You'd have to ask Karf Oolhu of Flickr about that part.
@Delta: I'm relatively certain the Monkeys aren't using a live shark as the basis for the sub. I could be wrong though...
what's with that!?!??! Iron man 2 is as good as the first! but the frogs will go boom as well as the stoopid monkies because Cap'n Dumbsub here is gonna blow the shark up or just himself... but is the shark made of metal or sharkskin? (deathnote is a pretty good anime, isn't it?) NJ ribberts!
Thank you all!
@Hans: I know, you'd think they'd learn that most numbers should be rounded off after the second decimal.
@Aerofighter: Well, let's not count the frogs out yet. You can always overestimate a monkey with a harpoon gun and dynamite.
@Waffles: Well, that's a distinct possibility. But stranger things than the monkeys winning have happened before...
@Shifu: You bet. He's quite fashion forward, especially with that designer hat and scarf combo.
