    It's an armored car, not a tank.
    Armor for protection against firearms, thrown objects, fire bombs/etc, no offensive capability (no canon, machine gun, etc).

    Hmmmmm, why would Virginia need Armor for protection against firearms, thrown objects, fire bombs/etc ?

    Maybe they know they're out of line ? over the top ? pissing off the normal freedom loving citizens badly enough that they're scared ****less ?

    Does Virginia have criminals? Is the state an attractive target for some reason?

    Looks like the jackboots can stand behind the forward structure and be raised for second-story entry. HH

    Look carefully. It's a front-end loader with an armored facia. HH

    Team members stand behind that shield for protection. You can put different attachments on the end.

    Every small town in MN has tried to get some type of " armored car". Departments with 20 Officers have old bank armored cars, or newer stuff. I stopped for lunch along interstate. Sauk Center MN. Article that at a domestic, the person barricaded in house shot,,hit the armored car. So maybe saved a life? (I don't know if there was a Officer standing behind) but if it was a normal SUV....
