10 Best Websites For Armored Cars And Armored Vehicles

Updated on July 8, 2009

Armored Cars Are Gaining Popularity

Is it any wonder nowadays? The armored vehicle market has been growing to include a civilian market. Many celebrities, politicians and other public figures have found it necessary to use armored vehicles for a greater sense of security. It is possible to get buses, SUVs, trucks, cars and even aircraft armored.

Armor Is Added To Existing Vehicles Or The Armored Vehicle Is Designed And Manufactured From Scratch

Armored cars, vehicles and other armored equipment may be based on existing products or they may be designed and manufactured altogether by the company selling the armored products. Many luxury cars are a popular vehicle for civilians to upgrade with armor panels. Some companies that produce armored vehicles sell both armored equipment and related products. Armored vehicles may be luxury, customized or recreational. As for the different levels of protection that is offered by armor, you can learn about the ballistic levels of protection here: http://www.texasarmoring.com/armoring_levels.html.

      I think the fact that a company such as Jaguar is making an armoured vehicle says a great deal about the paranoia people are experiencing as a consequence of an overly mediated society. At one end of the spectrum we have companies with the desire to have us driving around in electrified gambos, whilst at the other end we have the option to drive around in snazzy looking tanks.
