Georgia SWAT Team's Amphibious Vehicle


The Cobb County (Ga.) Sheriff's Office SWAT team takes out its Cadillac Gage Textron LAV-300 amphibious light-armored vehicle for a test run in this clip from 2008. The 6x6 vehicle includes tires that are radial tubeless and can be outfitted with run-flat inserts. The LAV-300 MK II can climb a 60 percent gradient, operate on a 30 percent side slope, and tackle two-foot-high obstacles.
