smartruckThe Smartruck III, the Army's newest command-and-control vehicle, has a veritable cornucopia of high-tech features that put nearly any Bond car to shame. It's got such crowd-pleasers as ballistic protection, smoke and tear gas launchers, a high-resolution 360-degree camera, onboard UAV control, a V-6 engine, run-flat tires and several computers with a satellite connection. It also features such creature comforts as air conditioning, an adjustable height air suspension and a full-reclining sleeper seat. Oh, and let's not forget the remote controlled .50 caliber machine gun with sniper detection capabilities for when you absolutely must shoot a big hole in something. All this in a stylish package that's prefect for cruising around both cities and battlefields.
