who needs fuel efficiency when you have remote operated turret-mounted light ordinance

I thought that it was a prank when my friend forward this to me, but all indications are that it’s legit. A firm called Ibis Tek isn’t just selling armored SUVs — they’re selling “armored SUV(s) with concealed weapons platform(s).” That’s right – the RRV 1501 ‘Jackal‘ has a hidden, remote controlled 7.62 mm machine gun inside! Here’s clip from their marketing materials:

…Safety comes first with Ibis Tek’s Jackal. The vehicle is uniquely configured so that both the driver and gunner are seated in the vehicle, protected from the environment. With the gunner inside the vehicle rather than standing behind the weapon, he is less vulnerable to attacks from stones, bottles, garrote wires, and other non-ballistic threats. Armor installed in the vehicle provides additional AK-47 ballistic protection for the occupants. With the weapon stored in the vehicle until needed, the vehicle appears nondescript and non-threatening. A simple push of the button at the control station located at the front passenger seat deploys the remote-controlled weapons station in less than 10 seconds…

So, the next time you think about flipping the bird at the fucker in the SUV with the “God Bless America, Wrong or Right” bumper sticker, you might want to think twice.

    I’m assuming you can’t use these things legally in the United States. I don’t doubt for a minute that people can legally drive around with machine guns in some places, but I can’t imagine there’s anywhere in the US that would allow you to roll around with a machine gun controlled by a joystick.

    Just wait, though. With the growing disparity in wealth here, it’s only a matter of time…

    Only 7.62mm? pffftttt, that’s nothing. Now when they can mount a .50 cal on my Prius, give me a call.

    I don’t know if you can mount a .50 cal on a Prius but here is what happens when you shoot a Prius with a .50 cal gun.

    They also have a model called the Vulture. It’s outfitted with a mechanism that plucks out the eyeballs of onlookers, and a ray gun that can turn people’s bones to jelly.

    Oh, it also removes the hands of panhandlers with tiny chain saws.

    The Hyena model is better. It launches a ravenous hyena with a slingshot.

    Ah, but that’s 2003 model. I’m pretty sure they started putting in Kevlar starting with the 2004’s.

    I heard from a friend yesterday that there’s a rapper who has a Humvee with a shark tank in the back. I’m looking for contact information right now so that I can propose the addition of a shark-launching catapult. If he responds, I’ll post it here.
