The $45,000 anti-terrorist armored electric car doubles as a golf cart
With the Mumbai terror attacks, it was clear that the luxury establishments were the new targets and required new countermeasures. So in an effort to set the standards up a bit, India has built a Metaltech Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart to withstand grenade attacks, probably on the golf course. The battery operated, $45,000 Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart (Atac) with firing ports resembles some bulletproof golf buggy. Weighing just under half a ton, the Atac has bulletproof windows and contains numerous firing ports; and is able to move effortlessly in corridors and lifts. The vehicle can last for six hours on a single charge – with a top speed of 25km/h (15mph). It is still hard to say whether it would be of any help in assisting Indian armed personnel, but we were thinking what might follow next…room service with explosive detectors maybe.
