Armored cars have to protect passengers from a range of threats, using many different techniques to keep out bullets and bombs. A new video from Inkas Armored Vehicles Manufacturing’s YouTube channel shows what a car undergoes during testing, with a Toyota Land Cruiser withstanding some brutal R&D that sees the crossover pummeled with bullets, grenades, land mines, and 15 kilograms of TNT.
The video opens by showing the Toyota pitted and pot-marked from the 780 rounds of ammunition from various caliber guns that had hit it. The video then shows the Land Cruiser being shipped off for some more brutal testing. The additional ballistics testing included discharging 6 DM51 grenades on the roof, 4 DM51 grenades under the floor, 2 land mines, and 15 kilograms of TNT from a distance of two meters (6.5 feet).
