    Can just imagine one of these with a rubber round shotty on its back with a couple of tear gas grenades. Ideal testing group a good riot or bunch of looters.... Shant be long now, hope to see big dog with a couple of these running vehicle checks on dessert road blocks, while the lads sit back in their wagon with a swarm remote weapon aimed at the occupants.
