Coming To An Inner-City Uprising Near You: The "Ultimate Riot Control Truck" Of The Future

Tyler Durden's picture

One upon a time, the benevolent future was supposed to bemuse with hoverboards, flying cars and interplanetary travel. Instead, according to the folks at Slovakia's Bozena Riot Security Systems, the dystopian future has arrived, and it is made of armored plates and riot gear.

The Bozena Riot can handle virtually any duty when authorities need to put down an uprising: it is a remotely operated, armored vehicle designed to deal with riots and mobs in the streets and urbanized areas. The system offers a solution for both protecting the law-enforcement units in action and controlling the situation whenever peace maintenance is required.

The truck right out of RoboCop's OCP Detroit, has three components: a carrier, a 3000 kg adjustable shield, and a water trailer. Two water cannons can send protesters flying from the front or the rear and if that doesn’t do the trick, police can always rely on the "high-pressure tear gas gun" to disperse any riot.

As Gizmodo points out, the unmanned unit is covered in CCTV cameras assuring full video coverage, while the driver gets to enjoy inner-city riots from a comfortable safe distance courtesy of this virtual cockpit which puts all control options at one’s fingertips:

The truck's shield has six launching ports to fire guns or other rubber projectile launchers while keeping the heavily fortified shooters safe. Furthermore, should the truck's riot police passengers get stuck in an alleyway, the shield has bulldozing capabilities allowing authorities to directly engage with social discontents.

To be sure, the topic of police militarization in the US has been a particularly sensitive one in recent years, so perhaps the country will avoid this tool to quickly and efficiently restore post-riot order. Probably not: as Gizmodo notes, "the combination of an increase in law enforcement spending and Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ pledge to stop monitoring out-of-control police departments seems to set up just the right environment to make it happen."

In any case, no matter on which side of the ideological divide one stands, and whether one roots for the authorities or the rioters who may soon suffer the wrath of the Bozena Riot, there are plenty reasons for everyone to be both delighted and concerned.

The video below courtesy of Bozena shows the prototype in action.

 

For those who enjoy details, or are considering the purchase of one of these robotrucks for their own private neighborhood watch, below is the Bozena Riot's client brochure:

Not exactly as stylish as the EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle, is it?

mtl4's picture

Looks like the A-Team got a hold of a boom truck.........water tank WAY too small to be of much use for long against any truly angry mobs.

Why are all the graphics in English?

This thing is built for the NWO to take over the U.S.A.

Get ready with the torches and pitchforks.

Ppl u must understand this happens right now for a reason, the ultra-rich will have immortality available in the next years and as of that, all they need are robots and AI, no need anymore for the useless as such billions of human cattle all they are good at is destroying this planet, do you think that the new immortal lords would enjoy a world overpopulated and drowning in shit and garbage or they would enjoy a clean, awesome natural park extending most of the planet surface?! Just use your common sense, and who could blame them?!https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/mar/25/animal-life-is-over-mach...

Remotely driven? Great. Now, all that the rioters need are a couple of nerds to hack this and turn it against the police...

dunce's picture

Hacking is unlikely, but after the first time it is used,  the control frequency can be learned with an easily acquired spectrum analyzer and jammers can be built to disable the remote control. The operator in the cab would overide the remote control.

Yes.....but that's why you also bring paintball action against this tyrannical bullshit glorified police bobcat. Once you smother the plexiglass viewports with eggs or paintballs, then you start lobbing the cocktails over the advancing wall. If the portals are not covered in plexi or lexan, the paintballs will still work as they coat the face shields of the costumed wannabee terminators on the other side.

The effect of this ridiculous taxpayer funded joke is merely to evoke more fear amongst the sheeple.

Soylent Green coming to your neighborhood soon?

This is not difficult…;  

..just make ICE dump all the illegal aliens into the alleged sanctuary cities.

..They will love the results.

....and the dump truck and snow plow dirvers will love the overtime pay,

Yo Gizmodo, where were you during Ruby Ridge, Waco, etc, etc, etc...Police department's as seal teams been in the works for a long time.

Freddie's picture

Waco 1 and 2.

I wonder if a .50 or molotov cocktails will stop this piece of shit?

CrimsonAvenger's picture

Banana in the tailpipe. Am I the only one who watched Beverly Hills Cop?

Manthong's picture

…maybe the discriminating operator would prefer a .23 mm HE which would easily glide up the tailpipe

Due North's picture

I believe that I still have one or two M72 ADAMs lying around..... Those will definitely do the trick.  Several relatively easy to build underbelly AP devices fulfill the the invoice as well.

Ace Ventura's picture

Yes those would work. I would also suggest a nice barrage of paintball fire to the viewport areas. Whoever said banana in the tailpipe....+100, although that requires getting up close and personal with the costumed pork rinds on the other side of this bobcat-toted wall.

knukles's picture

Sorry to break any news to y'all, but Waco and Ruby Ridge both were carried out primarily by US military personnel.

Bastiat's picture

FBI and other Fed agents as well, no?

Implied Violins's picture

Yes, and we knew their names, then.

Now? Robocop answers to NOONE.

Wulfkind's picture

With as much shit the Feds have practically given away to many police forces there's little difference any more.

Gives new meaning to "Free Shit Army"

TAALR Swift's picture

Have they been tested against a real ME mob, complete with Molotov Cocktails and IEDs?

oldguyonBMXbike's picture

No, they expect the rioters to get tired and take nap time.

ParkAveFlasher's picture

In the US, they might just do that.

For the City's, thats cool.  When was the last time you saw mass riot/demonstration in rural areas.  Fruitcake Progressives live in the city's where as I live in rural county.

Calmyourself's picture

Yeah, rural people your power and roads are your vulnerabilities.  Unless you are putting out roving patrols and a myriad of other measures you won't last.  Don't get me wrong still better than the city but just another set of problems such is life..

Ilmarinen's picture

Dammit Threepio, I said shut down all (rioter) trash compactors in the (inner city) detention center!

SWRichmond's picture

Epic comment.

So, if it has an operating system it can be hacked.  If it's remotely operated, there are several avenues to pursue this objective.  So this thing gets hacked and then goes apeshit and kills dozens of people?  Lawsuit anyone?

"Oh no, we have a remote kill switch".  "Oh no it can't be hacked".  Yeah right.

Pre modified SCOOP truck...

Same color as the DNC. A hint? Imagine Maxine Waters driving one.

"Looks like the Soylent Blue trucks have arrived."

THE SCOOPS ARE COMING!

And WTF is "peace maintenance"? (Good grief....)
