Default Metaltech Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart

The $45,000 Indian-built and -designed Metaltech Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart is essentially an armored golf cart designed to withstand grenade attacks. Although seemingly the least threatening armored vehicle ever built, it makes perfect sense for Mumbai-like confined quarters anti-terrorism use.

In the wake of 2008's Mumbai terrorist attacks, Indian special forces have searched for tools to help them combat the kind of shootouts they faced: narrow corridors, hotel lobbies, confined spaces. Large armored trucks are great, but the Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart goes where it can't including down hallways and into elevators where it can be used to extract civilians or bring the fight to terrorists.

The designers claim it can withstand close range fire and grenade blasts and runs for six hours on a single charge with a top speed of around 15 MPH. The ATAC is still in development, but a prototype will be used by India's elite special forces unit. Given what they could make out of a one-person golf cart, imagine what they'd do with an AT-ST.
Still, despite what we're sure are some obvious uses, we have to say that a toy like this would completely fail as an anti-Zombie defense vehicle. We'll stick to our current list of post-apocalyptic survival vehicles, thank you very much.

Default Curtains

In some of the shots it looks like the curtains are already hung up on the inside.

Meh, the Howe and Howe Tech Badger looks like a much better option than that thing.

I'm sure Tiger Woods has something to do with the development of this thing.

^^lol. Its a hardcore version of the Tata Nano car.

Im sure its a great armor vehicle like they said. But I would also like to be able to run away from my assailant. At 15mph, it looks like the vehicle could be hijacked on a foot pursuit and then I'd be captured and beheaded. For an armored vehicle, I hope those are solid rubber tires.

This is more suited for someone like the pope or 50-cent.
