I was talking with some coworkers recently about how the war in Libya reminded me a lot of “Road Warrior,” with weaponized pickup trucks barreling through deserts and the ruins of cities. But, I think the folks over at Gizmodo have a more accurate analogy: the car-to-car combat and wacky hack jobs are a lot more like “Twisted Metal.”
Let me illustrate this with a few examples.
Here’s a pickup truck with a tank turret welded on top:
Here’s a truck with a salvaged rocket pod on top, sitting near the burning ruins of a less-fortunate truck driver:
This is a nice little truck with an 14.5mm gun sitting in the back:
This truck has a fancy set of rocket launchers:
