RCMP emergency response teams across Canada can now call in armoured vehicles for support in high-risk situations such as hostage takings and armed standoffs.
The Mounties have taken delivery of 18 custom-built tactical armoured vehicles that can withstand high velocity bullets and explosions.
The vehicles — called TAVs — were designed by RCMP engineers and built by Navistar Defence Canada at a cost of $14 million.
