Ultimate BOV and Emergency Vehicles (Armored, etc)

Ultimate BOV and Emergency Vehicles (Armored, etc)

Postby wesurvive » Wed Jun 29, 2011 12:55 am

There are several thousand groups across the USA alone that are geared up for a disaster, but they are also finding ways to get people to their emergency shelters and provide safe transport while doing it. Some have retrofitted their own make-shift armored vehicles and some have just used what is available to use as an armored vehicle.

Then among those groups there is also the emergency response teams, which during the disaster they will respond to the disaster afflicted area if no other help is coming from the outside (Gov, public emergency services, etc.) The vehicles will carry doctors, nurses, and if needed security personnel to protect the innocent and offer protection to the doctors and nurses from bandits or looters.

Here are some vehicles that can be used as either a BOV, armored personnel carriers or as emergency response units.

First I will cover the most available vehicles that are usable as is that can be bought anywhere. Armored mods should include covering the engine, gas tanks, wheels and protecting the driver.

Garbage truck. The thick steel box allows for easy modifications within to weld seats and shelves for the personnel it will carry. The front of the vehicle can be retrofitted with steel to protect the driver and the engine.
The heavy vehicle is also powerful enough to push abandoned vehicles out of the way when needed.

Dump Truck. Another very heavy steel truck that allows the dump box to be converted to hold passengers, medical personnel, and the front can be armored to protect the driver and the engine. The heavy vehicle is also powerful enough to push abandoned vehicles out of the way when needed.

Water Trucks: The tanks are built pretty heavy and can be modified with more armor to house personnel inside the water tank and an entry can be put in the rear. The top of the tank near the rear would be made taller to give some sitting room, while the front of the tank would be for storage of food and supplies. Lots of ways to modify this vehicle to fit your needs.

Then there is the APC (Armored Personnel Carriers) and other available military vehicles for sale. However, they are not cheap unless you find a good deal along the way.

This is an international sales site, so look for the US Flag to see what is sold in the USA. Some vehicles are up for bidding.

Another place is Ebay and those sites that sell vehicles.

For personal BOV off road 4x4 vehicles:

Pretty much any older (or newer) pickup, SUV or what ever works for you that is going to end up be modified and or have armor welded onto it.
Older is better though.

Here is a homemade Libyan armored truck. Only I wouldn't have holes for headlights, but mount the lights on the front of the armor as any hole is a hole that lets bullets through to damage the engine and even injure the driver.
