Turkish riot police water cannon truck promotional video

It is called the Toplumsal Olaylara Müdahale Aracı (TOMA). It has been sold to democratic bulwarks such as Zimbabwe, Libya, and Kazakhstan.


Specs here.

When looking at footage from Turkey on TV, my father actually pointed out how their water cannon trucks looked so much better and modern that those of Chilean police.

@Ripituc: It does look pretty modern, doesn't it?

What make and model are the Chilean trucks?

I see they use at least 3 different bodies on Mercedes-Benz mechanicals. You can see very good pictures of our Carabineros' vehicles here:

He is a fellow Chilean photographer that really likes taking pictures of police vehicles, planes and stuff like that.
