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:

That is the key, tax dollars.  I remember in 07 at our local festival the local cops called in ATF and had a helicoptor cirlcing overhead to catch any one pissing in the alleys.  Totally over the top waste of money.  Haven't seen one since.  To expensive.  Starve the Beast.

Spray paint the CCTV cameras or jam the signals.  Who designs this crap?

Yes! Paintball guns or paint-filled water balloons for the windows on this thing.

Exactly.  You won't see that thing going over burning cars in the street either.  How come they aren't showing this thing in action in France?  It probably wont make it over all the burning tire piles either.  You would think that all new riot gear would be tested on the Muslims tearing apart Europe but they just let those guys go.  The equipment must be for us.  Maybe in this situation it is best that they are selling lemons.  We would be getting ripped off either way.

"The equipment must be for us."

Of course it is.  It's painted "UN peacekeeper blue".  That ain't by accident.

And what if people burn it while it's sitting in the police parking lot?

Pussy Riot will still win in the long run

Pussy Riot are 100% Soros puppets.  So you think Soros will win?

I think that's the future like it or not. Best to be behind that thing that in front of it. If you're dumb enough to take them on on their terms head-to-head face-to-face I guess you deserve to get squashed.

when is this coming out on a gaming platform? I want to squash some mobs. 

They could name it "The day the EBT Cards stopped working"

BFD. 

Couple 'o guys with gas masks and spray paint, and it's blind. 

Move your march to an uphill street and drop oil. 

Most importantly, start manning rooftops to take out drones and drop presents ranging from glitter to incendiaries. 

Get creative.

You mean like deploy your own drones???

 

oldguyonBMXbike's picture

While the riot is deployed at Site A, go on the other side of the city and rob Site B.

I am certain the free market would come up with a solution to disable/destroy that if shit hit the fan. Americans may not be the best at inventing now a days but we are still number 1 at blowing shit the fuck up. 'MURICA!!!!!!

Not a bad first start!  Reminds me of my favorite part of the movie Soylent Green when the bulldozers came in and scooped up the dirty, disgusting, poorly dressed food rioters and hauled them away for proper processing at the nearest Soylent facility.  But the movie 'dozers looked like the same models one would use on a construction site. The big blue machine in the picture is more in keeping with the job at hand.  I like the part where this model can also hose down the protein source...all they need to do is tinker with the model so it can also scoop up the worthless into dump truck sized loads for further processing.

How about using a big combine instead?  Mow 'em down, bail 'em up, and ship 'em out.  Hay bails of compressed people parts would be easier to ship to the cracker processing factory anyway.

"Hay bails of compressed people parts would be easier to ship to the cracker processing factory anyway."

So they are only for white people?

Citxmech's picture

I guess it depends on if you want the Soylent crackers to be segragated by race:  e.g., Soylent Red, White, Yellow, Brown, etc.

Not sure where Soylent Green fits in that system though. . .

What happens when the street is wider than the front blade.......?

 

The morons being pushed scurry off to either side of it and pounce all over the cop driving the damn thing.....

In.Sip.ient's picture

read carefully junior.... this is an RPV!

 

There IS NO DRIVER in the vehicle.

 

just the tip's picture

does it work on the same frequency band  as other samsung TVs?

Citxmech's picture

I want to know how this is going to work with cars, trees, garbage cans light poles, and all the other crap populating city streets.

 

Of course, maybe it's more for blocking and containment than pushing.

I would not assume the police will be on the side of the state when the s hits the fan.

The Germans thought the Warsaw ghetto was contained. 

When tanks were brought in, molotov cocktails appeared.

When people are determined, stuff like this riot control vehicle are death traps.

Tele-presence and remote controlled bots are likely to be a big factor in "law enforcement" soon.

Remember Dallas PD and their robot used to blow up a shooter.

IED anyone? If I see that shit on my street, it's on. And then some.

Shades of the Commies in Eastern Europe. Took a tour in the early 80's and their version of this was not as modern but had the same idea.

Street protests, especially by students, have been a hallowed tradition in France since 1968. In the early 2000s, one such protest was attacked by a mob of North African teenagers. They didn't steal much, they just had fun beating up white kids and smashing their expensive phones.

So for the next student protest, the marchers were protected (and nearly outnumbered) by a wall of riot police and a vehicle resembling the machine above, thus making it blatantly obvious that student protesters are not rebels but brainwashed tools of the state.

Did anybody ever have a doubt that one of the side benefits of importing the violent hordes of "refugees" would be that there would be an increased need for government action to restore order?

In the year of our Ford...

 

Of course it's fine against the population that won't yell "Allah Akbar" before tossing some massive IUD, or some chemical, biological or radiological weapon.
