Using cars as weapons by running into pedestrians has been seen numerous times in Israel.


Rifles and pistols in the hands of police, soldiers, or citizens can stop a car pretty quickly.
A truck is a different matter. The truck’s massive front end offers the driver some protection against light weapons fire. Jihadis will also quickly start armoring the trucks. A few pieces of Kevlar, especially on the side doors, would provide significant protection against rifle and pistol fire. And no number of bullets will quickly stop a heavy truck coming at high speed. But an RPG will. - - Stopping the Truck Threat

Your Say

Verily that RGP will stop a truck in a given distance after the built up momentum is expended, but at the point of impact there will be one hell of a secondary touch on negativity on surrounding civilians. If said truck is loaded with explosives, the pyrotechnic clouds will rise for Allah's glory. TANSTAAFL!
