You know, after the 9 posts that was Project Technical, I think it’s safe to say that pickup trucks with guns mounted on them are pretty great.

Technicals – High Speed, High Calibre

Posted on June 1st, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

One of the more interesting systems you’ll see on technicals is the use of anti-aircraft guns.
