Made a post recently that referred to the upright stability, or sometimes the lack of, of the 110 Armoured Patrol Vehicle. Certainly in the late 80's I recall RCT drivers being brought in to drive for us (until a conversion course was established?!). I have included a pic of an experimental turret that I used briefly in West Belfast 85 (RUC New Barnsley), and as you can see the ballistic windows got smashed by bricks etc, and because of inertia it was no good as a stable firing platform, did anyone else get to use this?. I also remember the sport of "Urban Surfing" ( I didn't do it, but saw a couple of lads try it!!) there was also a lad trying to do a back somersault off the roof and landing on his face on the step, oops! What are other arrser's experiences of this vehicle including the non lethal projectiles (wine bottle full of p*ss) that came your way. It was pretty quick and more comfortable than the older Lanny's but was so easy to tip at moderate speeds.
