Saw my first police up-armored SWAT suburban assault vehicle in the wild this week.  It was on the way to the Harris Tweeter grocery.  They were giving a ride to civvie dames..  Cops know that women like a cool ride, right?  Amiright fellas?

They had the back doors open.  I bet the AC is no good in them things, and that is why.

Meh.  I don't know how I feel.  Better to be using the superfluous things to flirt with gals than to use them to do a live fire re-enactment of the battle of Kursk in lovely downtown Greenbelt.  Or Laurel

It was one of these.    With all the ports and windows and such.  Not a paddy wagon.  No turret up top, at least.

Any decent mid range or better rifle cartridge can damage the brake cylinders on these.

Then they are immobile.

I've spent a bit of time checking them out. The air cylinder for the rear brakes and the hoses are right out there in the open for everyone to see and maybe target.

Of course, molotov cocktails might work to change the occupant's attitude also.
