Arizona Sheriff purchases British Armoured Vehicle

#7
Many moons ago I think there used to be a couple of liveried Met Police saracens at the old public order training centre at Hounslow, presumably in preparation for WW3 or England winning the world cup or whatever. Don't know whatever happened to them.

Law Enforcement AFV award goes to the spam ATF who had those liveried LAV25s at Waco.

V!

Surely all the Sari-cans & Silly-dins have been caught by the Mil Veh enthusiasts? Mind, the US are the only country that could afford to run them on petrol. No pics but I'm sure GKN/BAe can see them off with a more modern (cr4p) vehicle from the Tactica range.....

But not for just $18,000. And rereading the article and checking some details on Wikipedia, the only one of the Alvis 6 wheel family coming in at 9 tons is the Stalwart. That can't be it surely?

But the piece says that they bought the other armd vehicle from another police force. That would point to the possibility that they haven't got the money to be in the market for a new wagon, only second hand. Cr4p or not, there aren't too many from the Tactica Range on the marked I wouldn't have thought.

Wonder if this sherrif knows that the old 'Saracan' aint bulletproof?
Quite a bit better than his 'cruiser' or pick-up, even if it isn't perfect and if irt's a Saladin, just the sight of the 76mm gun will put most civilians off standing to take an aimed shot. :roll:

I came across a website the other day stating that this company specialised in flogging our old cr4p wheeled afv's to septic plod.
They had pics of Ferret Mk 1 with blues'n'twos kit and stripes! They also reckonned that Saracen was top notch!

Poor fools
