    If they're talking about the European grading system meaning VR-9 then thats some extremely heavy armoring. That's the same grade of armoring that million dollar BMW limo that carries the president utilizes. I read that Guerrero paid about 2.5 million pesos for theirs, but I don't know if that was one or two vehicles. I can't think of anything that well armored that the Germans or Americans build in that price range. It's looks like it's on a Ford F600 platform so it'll probably do very well in terms or reliability. Seems like a pretty awesome vehicle actually. It's awesome that A Mexican company is developing decent armored vehicles and even more awesome that they're actually selling!

    Chapo Isidrio, The new rival of El Chapo.



    Treasury Designates Additional Sinaloa Based Drug Trafficking Organization.

    WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the designation of the Meza Flores Drug Trafficking Organization, including its leader, Fausto Isidro Meza Flores, several key family members, and three companies, all of which help facilitate the operations of the organization. Today’s action, pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act), is the first designation and listing of the Meza Flores narcotics operation as a Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO). This means that anyone providing material support to, or acting for or on behalf of, the Meza Flores DTO, can be designated by OFAC in future actions. This designation generally prohibits U.S. persons from engaging in transactions with these eight individuals, three entities, and the entire DTO, and also freezes any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction.

    Maybe the military can test them? One video said that they were 4x4s.
