TIV = Tornado Intercept Vehical

Anyway, saw it on a discovery channel show and thought it was awesome, so I made a heavily modified version. It is mostly a transport, with a little room for drivers. Not really like the TIV, but thats where I got the inspiration.

You know, there's a new series of storm chasers out on Discovery channel, and they made a new TIV. Only this one is black and cooler looking. Unfortunately, the axles on it keep breaking down because it is too heavy.

And here we are!
I hate to do all these links but otherwise they are HUGE so I just did this.
As I said before, heavily modified, the real TIV was just my orginal inspiration.

And yeah, stormchasers was the show, did you see the one were the tire fell off?

Yeah. Wasn't that the one were the amateurs in the van got right next to the tornado, while the expert team with the TIV was sitting a couple miles off, fixing the axle?

75%

Could be a little less blocky. And not cool as it may seem.
