    Saw an episode about vehicle defense
    Here's a summary :
    *In an ambush, your best bet is to move away from trouble and not to fight it out
    *Kung may humarang na vehicle , ram the rear axle ( assuming front engine ) tatalsik na yung car ( unless your driving a multicab hehe ) to get it out of the way
    The biggest difficulty here is overcoming your fear of ramming another car ( this fear nagsimula when we learned to drive )
    * kung truck ang humarang ,stop and back away from the threat then pag maluwag na , execute a 180 then speed off

    the driver of the car didnt even attempt to draw his gun

    In case of emergency, please feel free to use the above techniques and give us a review :)

    I saw that episode and was intrigued by a Philippine flag hoisted at the ceiling of the featured US car armor maker.

    Just like the way Jack Ryan extricated himself in that ambush in "Clear and Present Danger". It realy demonstrated the advantage of big SUV's in ramming other cars aside.

    Had they been in a smaller vehicle, things would have been different

    I believe O'Gara Hess and Eisendhardt had an armoring facility in Subic. Maybe that was where they shot the footage. Don't know if they're still there though.
