The BPG Werks DTV Jackal seeks to top their previous creation, the DTV Shredder, an off-road capable motorized vehicle that combined elements of the Segway with a BMX bike.
The DTV Jackal is not designed for public consumption like the Shredder, but rather it is being developed as a potential military weapon. The DTV Jackal has the ability to operate in any kind of weather, and is equipped with two grenade launchers as well as a remote control system that allows it to work as an unmanned drone-like weapon.
The DTV Jackal is capable of reaching 31 MPH at top speed and its hybrid-settings allow it to travel at high efficiency if the generator’s in use, and it also has the ability to operate solely on petrol if the vehicle requires stealth-operations.
John J. Young, a former Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics under the Bush administration, is a member of the DTV Jackal’s board and intends to help with the marketing of the product.
