Rebel Tech: Four Wheelers and Rockets

Happy weekend everybody. Check out these pics of what appears to be the latest in Libyan rebel weaponeering; a four-wheel ATV chassis with four rocket launchers mounted on top. At first glance, I was hoping this was a remotely controlled weapon system like these, but after looking at the image closely, I can't see anything that looks like a power plant for the chassis. However, the last picture in the collection shows what might be a remote launching device for the rocket quad. Let's hope they've put an engine on it since the pictures were taken.

While this may not be a shining example of engineering, it's a small example of the passion and dedication a lot of these rebels are putting into fighting against a despised ruler. This video showing a rebel re-powdering ancient rifle ammunition with powder taken from kids cap guns is another small example of the rebels' determination.
