There's nothing subtle about Terrahawk's Mobile Utility Surveillance Tower (MUST). It's a jacked-up matte black Ford E-series van with a curiously large protrusion up to. Mobile murder room? Not quite. MUST just likes to watch.

In less than two minutes the van goes from ginormous van to mobile guard tower complete with radar, thermal imaging, night vision, and even air-conditioning. The scissor-lift design isn't novel — security services have been using similar lifts for years — but a purpose-built van with such a complete surveillance platform seems new. An argument the company will soon make to Congress.

Terrahawk isn't advertising it explicitly as a sniper's next but, c'mon, if you need a van this intense you should be armed.
