Here's a close-up look into the Tornado Intercept Vehicle, a heavily-armored, modified Ford F-450 that was used in the famous Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers. With its plates, small windows and top turret, it looks like a cross between a B-17 Flying Fortress, a Panzer tank and a Mad Max truck.
The new version of the Interceptor, however, looks like it's out of a Batman movie. Armor or no armor, I wouldn't like to be in that car when something like that hits me. Ryan Mcginnis at Flickr]
