When Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi stepped out on state television yesterday to announce it was raining, the strange vehicle he was in was a Tuk-Tuk, which is a type of enclosed, motorcycle or bike-powered rickshaw. His may be armored.
The $45,000 Indian-built and -designed Metaltech Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart is essentially an armored golf cart designed to withstand grenade attacks. Although seemingly the least threatening armored vehicle ever built, it makes perfect sense for Mumbai-like confined quarters anti-terrorism use.
