    Default Failed phone heist ballistic breakdown

    Interesting to see what the vehicle looked like after all that. I'm surprised how small the visible damage is taken into account everything that happened.

    Mods, please can you lock this so it doesn't deteriorate like the previous one did?

    Interesting. It was much worse than what we saw on the cameras.
    Leo did handle it extremely well.

    I know. It really adds perspective to how well he handled the situation. It must have been super scary.

    I must credit the guy from the armoured supply company. He really trusts his product!

    I'm with you on that one Francois, I won't willingly sit behind damaged armoured glass with someone shooting at me. Doesn't matter how thick the glass is.

    Agreed.
    That said, why would I trust other people to use my product if I am not willing to use it myself?

    I am doubly impressed that he sat behind damaged glass and let them shoot again. Yes, even though it was off-centre to the damage.

    So the firearms used were
    7.62=AK77
    5.85= R4/R5

    Wonder if they were police/military issue R4/R5

    Wonder if there was cameras on the outside of the Toyota? Sins his view was blocked during the shooting that can be a onboard view of what is happening outside and can record what happened.
