Fully illustrated with a mixture of dramatic archive photos and manufacturers’ images, this volume covers the little known history of the riot control vehicle. It explores the world of these vehicles from 1945 through to the present day, showing how their development and deployment has blurred the lines between civilian actions and military operations. It charts how the vehicles have evolved in terms of technology and layout, and also details how the associated weapon systems have been refined over time, from water cannon and tear gas launchers to sub-sonic sound waves and microwave energy. The operational history of the vehicles is explained in the dramatic context of major incidents across the world, from the streets of Northern Ireland and Eastern Europe to the favelas of Brazil and battlegrounds of Iraq.
