What is the best vehicle of choice in a zombie apocalypse?

I reckon zombies would have a harder time getting into a tank than into a monster truck.

Tanks are made of thick steel, but how do you reckon that zombies suddenly have the ability to climb 15 ft tall trucks? Most people can't climb 15 ft even with cognitive abilities.

Monster trucks are prone to spin upside down when travelling on bumpy ground (running over zombies) and at high speeds. What was once 15ft is then an inch from the ground.

May not have mobility, but it does have strength. Can fire upon incoming enemies and zombies, while the monster truck would just flow them over but maybe get stck in mud. A tank is all terrain.

Yeah... because of it's threads... catterpillar threads are good on most terrain but can it go on solid ice, and if you're good in inventing, you can just make special snow tires or better offroad tires

I think the tank would probably be my choice so I could run over all the zombies and just squish them. Also you could fire your missle to far away ranges.

Okay... No offence to any existent Zombie but, Zombies are kinda dumb. So I believe that a monster truck would also be a good idea but with a tank I'd feel safer deep inside and kill a lot of zombies in one go altogether.

Tanks have defense and offensive weapons, they are made for war so whats a few zombies to it? A monster truck isn't going to last very long, to tall and in-accessible (compared to a tank).

Side: Tank

tank can give higher fire poer and you have spots to mount auto matic machine guns.

Side: Tank

Weapons built into it, no windows to smash, no tires to puncture and armor plating. Even if you don't get to kill any zombies, at least they won't get to you.

Side: Tank

The tank would definitely be better since it was designed for combat situations. It can easily rain bullets or shells down on the zombies before they can get close. If they do get close, the tank could easily run them over.

Modern day tanks have great maneuverability and move about 40 mph, weighing about 90 tons per unit. The armor is impenetrable to almost all weapons, even nuclear ones, so it can't be damaged by zombies. Supplies are always carried with the tank, so it can be easily repaired.

Overall, the Monster Truck can't hope to match the superiority of any Main Battle Tank.

I'm sorry about this; I meant 60 tons, not 90.

I forgot to mention that modern day tanks are designed to hold supplies and rations inside, so you can live inside it.

Also, tanks are designed to go over any type of terrain, so when the streets are filled with rubble and zombies, you can plow right through it all.

A tank can't withstand the full power of a nuclear bomb or missile. heck, but it can withstand a missile but we aren't talking about a zombie that can use a gun, are we?

Side: Monster Truck

probably the tank because it has more weaponry..............................................................

Weaponry... you know, it is possible to attach weapons on a monster truck, unlike the tank

Side: Monster Truck

The Tank is great for wiping out a thick crowd of zombies...where the monster truck won't mange to even with the speed.

Monster truck tires are 66 inches high and 43 inches wide. The tank would be stuck in the hoard of zombies while the height of the tires and truck will easy pass a herd of zombies without weaponry.

Side: Monster Truck

well I guess that would depend on the type of truck or tank. I would use the tank for defense.

You can simply lauch flamibles and burn the zombies (and any possible clothings).

Lol dude monster truck is better :) You need less oil and a monster truck is basically a giant jeep, so you have mobility. Also finding tank ammo is very hard unless you go to a military base. Monster truck is big and tall with great mobility, but if 100 zombies pushed the monster truck it could fall? IDK, but I would choose monster truck realistically.

As soon as you're out of ammo and fuel, you are still safest inside a tank.

Truck could get body parts stuck in the wheels.

Tank is armored and has guns.

Granted Truck is faster but if i was in a zombie apocalypse i would choose fight over flight.

Side: Tank

The fight or flight system of our bodies is kinda flawed... and just look at the gears of the tanks... if you got something hard between them, you'll get stuck as well as the trucks's metal grids. I would rather flight at first then fight later when I got some better guns

DUDES WAKE UP!!!!!!! its a TANK it can crush or blow anything up into pieces , WHICH IS A GOOD THING when your escaping A HORDE OF ZOMBIES......AND IT HAVE A LOT OF FIREPOWER!!!!!!

Tank. You can just close and latch the top hatch, then it is pretty impossible for them to get in. They can just crawl through the window of the truck if they get up to it. I would still rather have something like and AC-130 instead though.

Tanks are designed for war. It's just the kind of vehicle you need.

do you think that a zombie apocalypse is a war. Yeah, it's a war but not that kind of war. Zombies are dumb and you do not need to have a high defense, you just need to out wit them

Why not a ship? Can zombies swim and climb up ship hulls? Why not a space ship or the ISS?

What are you saying... if you're gonna use them on water, it would be useless... both would sink and a ship isnt part of this

It is a vehicle.

Weaponry shouldn't be a primary concern for a vehicle, especially since the tank's will be almost impossible to replenish and it won't be as effective on zombies. Also I'm pretty sure the fuel would be a problem, too, even more so than for the monster truck.

A vehicle should move fast, be fuel-efficient, and not get stuck. I think even the monster truck would be too big, especially if you were trying to get around in a big city, but it has that advantage over the tank, too.

Side: Monster Truck

Although the tank has the weaponry, the monster truck has the mobility and speed. The giant tires of the monster truck will serve as great weaponry running over a very large herd of zombies whereas the tank may get stuck and lose mobility.

You all in the tanks side are idiots, how can a civilian drive a modern tank without any experience... and how can you get in it without the right key or some kind of a way to get in when you can just upgrade the monster truck's armor, and tell me, if you've run out of ammo, how can you replenish it if you're in the middle of the city... be practical and start thinking for once

Monster truck definatly you can stay high up and get through a zombie hoard

a monster truck because it could ran over the zombies and u could add stuff or wepeonry to the back and kill the zombies and they cant get up the truck

I would rather drive away from zombies than fight them, however I think that this debate could greatly change based on the terrain which you are driving upon.

Side: Monster Truck

And the kind of driver that is using the vehicle. and the type of tank or truck

Side: Monster Truck

this shouldn't even be a debate, tanks are slow and take more gas, the key to a zombie apocalypse is speed and resource savings. monster truck has both compared to tank, plus is suspended in air away from zombies. if one zombie gets in a tank, no escape, in a monster truck climb out the other door. Id only take a tank to take it into the mountain and bury it with nothing above ground but the hatch half hidden as a night fortress, but since the debate is what vehicle it implies vehicular functions rather than shelter. so what would i rather have: tank, but what would i rather run around in": monster truck.

The monster truck is and will be upgradable or customizable, but you must have the right things to do it

The monster truck would work out best. Just have to make sure to keep the zombies from climbing up on it.

No, tanks can go up to 75 kmph, far outstripping any zombies. WWI tanks - bad, modern taks - good!

I would have to go with the Monster Truck given the two choices, but I would prefer a toy hauler RV with bullet proof glass, a hydrogen fuel cell (powered by water), a stocked mini bar, a shower, LCD TV with Bluray player, and lots of room for weapons!
