Ordinary vehicle tires can be rendered inoperable with something as small as a household nail, those of armoured vehicles include run-flat devices which are speciality units mounted on the vehicle’s rim. These devices sit within the tire and allow a vehicle to travel up to 60 miles at speeds of 60 mph with completely punctured tires. Now that’s Bobi’s car! If you remember, during presidential campaigns, security operatives who would trail him always made sure that the first part of the car to shoot was the tires,so they could disable his movements and delay him from reaching his next rally in time. This bad boy from Kamwokya ghettos told the manufacturer to consider his future encounters with security in that regard.
An element found within every armoured vehicle is essentially what makes it ‘armoured’. These are the thick ballistic metal plates installed directly to the sub-frame of the vehicle. Depending on the thickness and density of the armouring used, these alloys can withstand anything from .22 or 9mm rounds all the way up to armour-piercing heavy-calibre projectiles. Ballistic plating is also installed within the vehicle’s floor in order to protect against detonations below the vehicle.
Bullet Resistant Mirror
The vehicle’s transparent armour’ lies within its ballistic (or bulletproof) glass. While it isn’t physically possible to manufacture glass that protects from any type of attack, the glass used within these vehicles is specifically-manufactured to absorb the level of attack prescribed within the vehicle’s specification.
Using varying thicknesses and compositions, the glass is “dialled in” to the exact level of armour needed. They also carry ballistic glass capable of withstanding attacks from assault rifles, sniper rifles, and even RPGs.
In order to mitigate against attacks where one vehicle is used to ram into another, it is installed reinforced bumpers and grills to help armoured vehicles escape these situations unharmed. Creating additional reinforcement to the armoured vehicle’s edges as well as protecting key components, the armoured vehicle can also remove debris and clear its path for a swifter escape with minimal hindrance to its speed or mobility.
One can’t describe the beauty on Bobi’s vehicle and finish them all, but only the man from Magere Mr Ghetto Gladiator can testify on the above.!
