Alright everyone.  I'm a strong believer in armor.  I've had more than one suspect state he surrendered because he saw the tank pull into his yard.  who's got it....and more importantly who wants it.


Lead, Follow or get out of my way!

Our Department has a Lenco Bearcat



Lenco also makes an extra large vesion: The BEAR



They are great for Officer/Civilian rescues or to have a fortified position in an area where none could be found.  BIG cost though-$250K.

The Army and Marines have purchased well over 11,000 MRAPS.  I seriously doubt we will leave it to the Iraqis, if anything they will see sevice after we leave Iraq and build up Afghanistan. Eventually though, the need for that many in the field wil lessen. It sure would be nice if the DoD transferred many of them over to civilian police agencies all over the US....especially in lie of the recent deaths of 2 LEOs at the hands of a bomber. Would be great to see LE tac teams and EOD teams using MRAPs to get to and fro.


Anyone not knowing what an MRAP is just check out my gear section in my profile, Im a TC of the RG-33 MRAP.

Our team has two Peacekeepers, one Bearcat, and a V-150.  We have the most armor in our area.  Got to love taking out those fences!!

I am trying to figure out a way to buy a Lenco Bearcat for my SWAT tema through a grant.  Any thoughts on configuration?
