5 Tanks, 2 Armored Personnel Carriers, 3 Days, and 1 Military Library! Military Vehicles is a collaboration between Rabbit Ears Audio and Rob Nokes of Sounddogs.com. Over the course of 3 Days we recorded almost non-stop with the help of The Fort Snelling Military Museum in Minnesota. They were kind enough to open their doors and their tanks to us.

Sales through this site are single-user licenses, if you are working at a production facility and are interested in a multi-user site license, please contact me.
Important purchasing options and notes: Each vehicle is available for purchase individually or the library can be purchased as a complete collection at a discounted rate. In addition, buyers of the complete collection will receive the M75 APC which broke down on the day of our shoot but provided a great collection of false starts, engine whines, and stalls. All of the onboard recordings are multichannel mono files and the exteriors are un-matrixed mid-side recordings. Also not all of the coverage is exactly the same, so please read the file listings to ensure the library is right for your needs.
