You could simulate a bazooka guy by building a "tank" with all of its System Points allocated to damage. My intent here was to create a system for enormous vehicle battles; several games with my brother have shown me that Brikwars' vehicle rules don't work that well when you have eight giant vehicles on each team. Turns take half an hour because we need to do accuracy rolls for every single damn gun on his 16"-long crawler.

Toss a man a bazooka and have him roll to use it.

Yes. Or possibly that Brikthulhu dreams about a bazooka in R'lyeh.

Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

Did you guys actually make a Brikthulhu language or is it just words backwards or something?

No, it was invented by H.P. Lovecraft.

UPDATE: Here's a picture of my first micro tank. It's based on the SW pirate tank, as I've said already.

In this shot it's being used as a robotic mini-tank in my Capture the Ark game.

The stats are the ones I used as sample stats in the rule set. I also updated said stats to reduce the tanks' armor and movement range, giving them a more compact field.
