Do you happen to have anykind of a timeline for these?

These are pretty interresting, some look like garbage while others have taken quantum leaps, looking forward to what we are going to see in the following years, you really have to give props to them though, from regular pickups to tanks and nacro submarines.

YOU sound exactly like them, did you all attend the same school ? Or maybe you didn't hahaha !

Yes DFL your ignorance only confirms your stupidity. Its a gun fight where they plan on shooting im sure they would rather be hard of hearing in a armored "monstruo" then riddled with bullets in a chevy tahoe or Ford F150. Its people like you who give America a bad name.

These trucks WILL protect them, and they probably use some kind of eat plug, I am sure they tested them first. Anyways these guys really know how to fight a war.

THAT'S who you think gives america a bad name? Not murderers or thieves or rapists? Not the presidents who send us to war or the businessmen who embezzle? The people who give us a bad name are guys on forums who comment on how dumb these armorered cars are (which they are). You sir are an idiot

To anyone who thinks that these armored cars are a great idea, u might win a battle on the street with one of these, but how do u take over a plaza with one? How do u clear out a safe house or an entrenched cell? Park ur monstruo on the street and open fire? Eventually u gotta get out. And the side who is gonna win is the one with the better training, the better connections, and the better information. Not the thicker armor.

And who says they're not building an army??

Gas is cheap. Turn them into rolling BBQ pitts. Make a fire bomb car to ram the POS after you shoot out the tires. A small truck with napalm mixture would make the occupants feel the heat. Meanwhile, they should spend their efforts on getting a real job. A real macho man takes care of his family and gets up day after day to work at an honest job that contributes to society. Pinches guevones idiotas!! Turn in an American drug dealer today. Save your country's future.

Think about this...

+ These vehicles have not really been used in battle...yet.

+ The one that was buried indicates very long range storage and planning.

= They are not building these just to drive around shooting from. Too conspicuous. You would lose the truck every time you sent one out.

They are building these for a GRAND ASSAULT.

Against whom? Where? When?

This is the comedy portion of the program. I have a picture of one of these trucks with 6 guys inside, 3 shooting out of each side, hotter than shit, hot shell casings flying all over, no room to move, choking on the smoke, earplugs don't help. Plus the thing is so top heavy that it tips over the first time the driver gets excited and turns too sharply.

I'm reminded of an old joke - I can only recall the punchline - "...and the Mexican couldn't get his car started." It's comic book mentality. It's for sure not cutting-edge anything.

I think somebody has too much time on his hands. These things are death-traps.

Lol no. It says mierda like. They're calling the person who sent this truck idk where,a piece if shit. And z40 its a nikname for a narc in mexico

why dont they just buy old military surplus from russia and shit like that?? and get it dirt cheap. probably the best one of the bunch has the angled surfaces, so the bullets dont hit a flat surface, is kevlar used for armoring vehicles, maybe they can use something lighter than steel
