WHAT'S OBAMA PLANNING? UN TACTICAL VEHICLES ROLLING DOWN VIRGINIA HIGHWAY! - 2

PHOTOS: UN military vehicles seen rolling down Virginia interstate
JUNE 26, 2016
BY OLAF EKBERG

What were United Nations vehicles doing in Virginia on Friday?

That’s what motorists were left to wonder when they saw UN tactical vehicles — with bulletproof glass — on a flatbed truck and rolling down Interstate 81.

Jeff Stern posted several photos of Facebook and added the description, “Can’t begin to tell you how many of these I passed today on 81 near Lexington, VA. Interesting times ahead!”

“Tactical Vehicles, with bullet proof glass? What ever could those be for, and why are UN vehicles here, in THIS country?!” Fernando Johnson questioned, while Vincent Sammons noted, “They are sealed against gas too.”

HOW WELL EQUIPPED ARE THE COMBAT TRUCKS?
The trucks appear to be Alpine Armoring's Pit-Bull VX SWAT Truck models which cost from $225,000 to over $300,000. Here's what you get for your money:

The VX weighs in at 16,600lbs.
Seating for two plus eight crew.
Windows do not roll down, instead there are locked gun ports on the vehicle that can be opened to shoot bullets out or accept documents in and are even big enough to pass through a can of soda. Glass is a mini,

Internal fans can keep bad air out, such as in the event of a gas attack, or bring fresh air in when reversed.
PA system to speak to the outside world.
Remote-controlled spotlights on the roof and pairs of red and blue strobe lights are mounted to each four sides of the vehicle.
Every window on the vehicle is filled with ballistic glass that'll shed small arms fire like they're pebbles and even resist a close-range shot from a high-powered rifle.
There are nine gun ports.
The angled roof and floor are designed with anti-mine protection in mind and can repel modern frag explosives.

Every door overlaps with ballistic steel so no stray bullets can penetrate at an angle.
Vehicle length is 239ins and width 98ins. It's 100ins in height.
Wheels are 20ins x 11ins and are heavy duty for off-roading.
Three hatches on the roof.
Fuel tank is fully protected and encased in ballistic steel.
