SWAT Teams Conduct Training Drills with The Rook

January 25, 2013 at 12:32 PMRing Power

 

SWAT teams from around Northeast Florida conducted training drills with The Rook Armored Critical Incident Vehicle in Ponte Vedra, Fla., Jan. 23.

The Rook Armored Critical Incident Vehicle is designed and manufactured by Ring Power's Tactical Solutions division.

The valuable training allowed area law enforcement the opportunity to experience The Rook in action and train for emergency situations.

The training took place at an old shopping center that is slated to be demolished and rebuilt. Since it was already going to be destroyed,  law enforcement officials were granted use of the property to train — and do some damage.

The Rook utilizes a powerful Cat 287C Multi-Terrain Loader with an 84 gross HP engine, 13,000 lbs. operating weight, rugged wide rubber tracks, dual joystick controls and an enclosed cab. It is equipped with custom installed bullet-proof glass and NIJ Level IV armor cab reinforcement fabrication.

SWAT Teams practiced entering a second story building using The Rook’s Armored Deployment Platform. The ADP can be raised to 11 feet, allowing officers to gain entry to a second story building without having to work their way up the stairs. The ADP is equipped with four locking gun ports, four bullet proof glass sight ports, and video cameras attached to the front of the platform with video feed to the equipment operator.  

SWAT Teams also practiced using the standard Hydraulic Breaching Ram attachment. The HBR delivers 6,500 psi of pressure and much more power than a traditional hand-carried ram. It can be used to breach block walls, reinforced steel doors, wood and concrete, and windows protected by burglar bars. The ram is equipped with four low-light video and one infrared forward view cameras recessed into the end – one on each side and one in front-giving the operator a 360° view of the breaching area. The video images are transmitted to the viewing screen inside the cab with the operator.

The Grapple Claw attachment was also used during the training. The GC and can be utilized to gain access to attics where suspects might be trying to hide or seek protection from ground level exposure. With 4,500 lbs. of lifting capacity, use of the grapple claws in removing fortified doors, burglar bars, or exterior shrubbery can simplify access for armed officers. The grapple claw also aides in disaster relief efforts with the ability to remove debris from streets for emergency responders’ access.
