The Black Suburbans in the Presidential Motorcade
Have you ever wondered what all those extra SUVs are in Presidential or VIP
motorcades? You know, the ones with severely tinted windows. The SUV's that
no one gets in or out of?
Well, wonder no more. They have 6 barreled 7.62 mm mini Gatling guns. They
fire over 4,000 rounds per minute The wipers need to be run to remove spent
casings when the weapon is firing (you'll see why!). This video is from the
company that makes the rigs. The vehicle is also armor plated.
Check out the video!
