    I have no clue what the deal is with the presidential limo, except to say that i imagine that bears very little resemblance to any other vehicle other then the exterior body panels.

    Also reminds me just how much of a misnomer the idea that the president takes a surprise trip anywhere. It takes several C5-B loads for the SS to be ready for the president to be on the ground.

    The History Channel has a Modern Marvels dedicated to "presidential movers" and they talk about the limo among other things.
    Also if anyone has checked out the Air Force One special where they ride along with Bush to Africa. Very Cool!!
     
  16. Well for starters you have your first BLACK president and the country still has a lot of rednecks that hate black people. I think this present is more of a target than Bush. There have already been attempted attacks on him before he even became president.

    That gatling gun in the suberban shoots 6000-7000 (yes thousands) rounds per minute. That is nuts. Think I might get a limo like that to drive around and check on my crews. lol

    Those guys probably had more bullet proof stuff on and more guns then most people know is possible for one person to conceal while walking down the middle of the street. Not to mention the thousands of police officers and dozens and dozens of snipers backing them up incase they missed.

    It's the same minigun platform using on helicopters. The MH-6 Little Birds and UH-60 Blackhawks are often outfitted with minguns that fire up to 6,000 rounds per minute. But they can only sustain that kind of rate for a very short time before the barrel overheats.
