Obama Armored Limo

On an interview for Local TV show Mr Al Evan CEO of Security Pro USA was reviewing images of Obama new armored Cadillac.
Basically a presidential vehicle better be armored for many potential threats ranging from CQC (close Quarters Combat ) IE shooting hand gun from close range usually from
a crowd, thus its hard to identify the source of fire,or sniper fire which is a planed more precise attempt . in both cases an armored limousine will not help the VIP.

Depends on the weapon caliber and round velocity the vehicle armor may or may not defeat the attempt.
Armoring of a car usually consist of ballistic glass ,ceramic and steel plates that will together will compose a bulletproof structure that depends on the material used can stop lower caliber handguns and high powered rifles .


Windows of most armored cars thickness range from 1.6 to 2.7 inches making it a fixed window for a good reason, one is technical the windows are way to heavy to operate and
actuators need to be replaced to specialty parts, and movement is restricted to max 2-4 inches .
Also , you do not want the VIP riding a bulletproof car with un open windows . Most rounds will be fired at the vehicles windows and driver doors. Future solutions to protect the VIP is having a secondary UMV operation (un maned vehicle) take over driving and navigating the car in case the driver is down.

The level of detail in this post about the armored presidential vehicle is impressive. It sheds light on the intricate features and challenges involved in providing security for VIPs, like the president. The idea of a secondary UMV operation for added protection is forward-thinking.
