The cartel down south uses these on a daily basis. What has kept it from spilling over is beyond me. At some point it’s inevitable.
Syria is another good example of makeshift armor in use
It’s even happened here with the “killdozer” incident.
So what’s your plan? Without posting anything that will get you into to trouble that is
You’ll see battering rams and upgraded stolen military equipment often

The insurgents in Afghanistan used the terrain to their advantage against our MRAPs.
Main effort was PKMs and RPGs from an elevated position, 300-500yrds out. They knew the limitations of the M16/M4s especially in Afghan winds. Then a support effort on the flanks at closer rang, usually AKs or harassing fire.
The MG240s and M2s got the most effective use.
They also used motor bikes on goat paths.
I recall a TX PD had a repurposed MRAP. There were only one bridge that could accommodate the weight to go from one side of town to the other.
Paintballs across the windshields. Or balloons filled with paint, IF you can get close enough.
Banana in the tail pipe?

And yet usa has lost against highly determined guerilla fighters with nothing more than adhoc medium and large weaponry.
Something to learn there

Definitely. The young man learned a lot of lessons that day. Better than any school he’ll ever attend.
