'Narco-tank' found in Jalisco

This is how outgunned the Mexican military is.

The so-called "narco-tank" is a 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty with steel armor plates welded to nearly every surface and a folding battering ram, or "man-ram" fitted to the front bumper, the BBC reports. The cargo bay was transformed into a metal cabin, complete with gun ports and a rotating turret, presumably to protect passengers from gunfire.
