Shot Show 2022 was much different than the shows of the past. Yes, there were less people and less vendors but there was more of a few things. One of those things was a mess of new, innovative, and just plain awesome new tactical vehicles. From off road monsters to technologically advanced electric bikes here are some of my favorites from Shot Show 2022.
This may very well be the ultimate off-road machine. Built completely from the ground up starting with a fully welded frame utilizes armored steel on load-bearing components and an aircraft-grade aluminum skid plate for unsurpassable impact protection. The available gas or electric power train pushes 115hp to the wheels. The entire drive train is located above the skid plate and out of harm’s way. 3 different models are available to match your exact needs. Additionally, all three models can carry up to their own weight on top of them. 100% payload capacity on and off road. Embrace the power, stability, and payload of the new Tomcar TX. From the battlefield to the mud-baked trails and everything in-between — there is no limit with the Tomcar TX. Starting at $21,000 https://tomcar.com/models/tx/
The CM66 is a smaller version of Hydratrex’s larger amphibious tactical vehicles. This monster utilizes the chassis design of the Hydratrek products and the Land Tamer gearbox and driveshaft drive system. Outdoorsmen and waterfowlers will love this model due to it’s compact size with incredible capabilities. The CM66 features a 57 HP Kubota gasoline engine, marine-grade aluminum construction, a hydrostatic drive system, and all-wheel drive. You can choose to run the Hydratrex with or without the track system.
Seating for up to 5 persons is available, and other options include 18″ track system, rear water propulsion, LED light bars, front and rear electric winch, and a full cage with storage racks. The land payload is 1,400 lb., and the water payload is 1,000 lb. The CM66 is generating a lot of excitement due to its smaller size and superior reliability. This thing is pretty much a mini tank.
