Weaponizers: Remote-Controlled Armored Cars Fight Each Other To the DeathS

Discovery Channel's new Weaponizers mini-series sounds pretty insane: Dudes armor-plate cars, mount them with machine guns and rockets, then hide in bunkers, operating them by remote control in an ultimate to-the-death Carmageddon. Oh my.

UPDATE: Video Sneak Peek HERE It's a three-part series from the MythBusters producers, airing May 11 at 9pm on the Discovery Channel. The formula resembles a lot of those DIY reality shows: Two teams of master builders compete against each other to build the sicker, more destructive remote-controlled killmobile. They don't just tear up muscle cars (a la Animal House); these bastards use innocent shuttle buses and, get this, ice cream vans, too.

Once built, there are two tiers of competition. First the weaponized cars have to blow up fuel depots or medieval fortresses, stuff that doesn't necessarily fight back, I suppose. In round two, the shit hits high gear, with "a gloves-off test" of combative capability and remote-control driver technique, until the smoke clears and there is only one vehicle left. My guess is, it'll be the one with the wedge. [Discovery]
