The Attorney General’s Office of Baja California subtly announced, by parking it outside of their Tijuana office, the arrival of a new tactical armored truck to be used by the state police. The vehicle known as BATT, which stands for Ballistic Armored Tactical Transport, adorns “Black Knight” logos, which have drawn much attention.

According to the El-Mexicano, the 175,000 peso truck was ordered in November with money provided by the U.S. from the Merida Initiative.

The 15.5 ton vehicle can hold 15 people and has one of the highest bomb and bullet proof systems available. While the truck can be used for multiple purposes, it has been stated by authorities it will be primarily for transporting dangerous criminals.

The manufacturer of the vehicle, The Armored Group, LLC, is headquartered in Phoenix, AZ.
