Brink's armored big-rig

Due to the high crime rates in Brazil, and cargo robbery growing at frightening rates, some measures are earning popularity in order to prevent it. Armored trucks, for example, are getting more popular. From the beginning with cash-in-transit vans, that could also haul some smaller items in a relatively safe way, bulkier items required other approach. The Brink's company, for example, already operates some Mercedes-Benz trucks with an armored cabin designed in resemblance to the bodywork of its cash-in-transit vans. The one in the picture above is fitted with a Mercedes-Benz OM447LA engine rated at 350hp.

  1. It's a shame that a country so beautiful as Brazil is plagued by violence. But that's what the people get for betraying their conservative values for a so much hyped "change" brought by that uneducated Marxist drunk Lula da Silva.
