I think that Lief and Will have done a good job so far showing that it
is relatively easy, fast, and inexpensive to get going with a motorized
wheeled vehicle, either an armored car or a support vehicle towing an
artillery piece. There are lots of used R/C trucks and parts sold at
flea markets and yard sales, and a good collection of 1:6-ish vehicles
at mass-market prices. That makes it easy to get something rolling
(literally). And by using either the 40cal blow gun parts or the cheap
68cal marker that Steve Tyng found, a wire-controlled artillery piece is
about as easy as it gets.
Picture a half dozen jeeps and trucks hauling artillery pieces around
the battlefield placing them in strategic places, supporting each other
with cross-fire. Could be tough on any enemy tank or armored car.
