China’s got a new beastly toy to mow down the massses: the YLGA01 8×8 SWAT APC. It’s rugged, armoured and scary looking — exactly what you want from an APC. But on the inside? Pure comfort!
Well, it still looks like the inside of an APC, but dig this: full central air, wall to wall carpeting, and hot and cold water! And those seats look pretty plush! This APC would cost about $US900 a month to rent in Manhattan. But can your cramped apartment oppress civilians? No.
By comparison, here’s the interior of an Australian APC. No thanks! We need the cast of a Bravo reality show to make that thing over. [China Defense Blog]
