NITROGEN STRAIGHT FIRE “SUPER-GUN” CAR CANNON
The Nitrogen Super-Gun allows a vehicle to be propelled at speed where the location, impact severity and or type of impact, i.e. into water, solid object rapid deceleration or possible vehicle destruction prevents the vehicle from being driven by a stunt performer.
The Nitrogen Super-Gun also allows the angle of trajectory of the vehicle or object to be adjusted hydraulically, from between 0 & 45 degrees, this enables a greater distance of flight to be achieved, and a typical small family car can be fired up to a distance of approximately 60 metres.
The host vehicle is prepared by Bickers stunt engineers, removing the engine, gearbox all flammable & none flammable fluids, the underside of the vehicle is then dressed for continuity.
Bickers articulated dummies can be used in this setup if the driver or passenger will be seen during the stunt.
This type of equipment can accelerate the vehicle from 0 to 60mph in approximately three metres.
This system has been used on a number of TV & Feature Films Inc, James Bond, Fast & Furious 6 and BBC Top Gear and most recently the new Mission Impossible- Dead Reckoning Part 1.
