Best Bug-Out Vehicles

Contrary to the popular theory that the key to survival in difficult post-apocalyptic times is a decent supply of food and matches, we believe that a car will bring much more benefit to humanity. However, transport that will increase your chances in times of crisis is far from ordinary.

Let’s imagine that you have packed all your emergency bags, your shelter can withstand a direct hit from a bomb, and your family is always ready to accompany you if suddenly something happens. The next question that arises is: What is the best vehicle to move on?

Knight XV

Knight XV is covered with ultra-durable armor and has one of the strongest frames that protects the machine from almost all types of explosions. The SUV received an automatic tire inflation system, an internal fire extinguishing system, night vision devices, an autonomous oxygen supply function in case of a gas attack, a magnetic detector for detecting explosive devices, and much more. At the same time, the salon is no stranger to the joys of comfort and pathos: there is leather trim, several touch monitors, and even game consoles. Well, the SUV is powered by a 6.8-liter V10 that runs on biofuel.


Maybe this is what the shuttle cars of the future will look like: this heavily armored SUV is a kind of public transport, designed to protect passengers in conditions of increased danger and is capable of performing its tasks in almost any climatic conditions. However, such a car can replace even a house. It will not give way to a bastion in terms of safety.

So, the INKAS Huron APC tactical armored vehicle has BR6 ballistic protection, which means the vehicle can withstand shots from large-caliber firearms, as well as mine and hand grenade explosions. Also, a machine gun can be installed on the roof, as an additional option. This car is equipped with a diesel engine with a volume of 8.3 liters and a 10-speed gearbox.

Oshkosh TPV (Tactical Protector Vehicle)

The Oshkosh TPV is a tire and track machine. The shell withstands the impact of a 14.5mm caliber bullet! It has loopholes. In general, if some serious mess begins to form, you can safely get into this car and try to fight your way out. The manufacturer also offers biological, chemical, and antioxidant protection as options. However, the car is more intended for movement than for long-term survival in it.

Polaris Sportsman WV850 HO

The Polaris Sportsman WV850 HO is an ATV built based on the MV850 military all-terrain vehicle, designed for use in any conditions – which means it is capable of many things.

Polaris Sportsman WV850 HO has airless Terrain Armor tires, which are the own development of Polaris company. Such wheels are able not only to conquer any surface but are practically “invulnerable”. They are not afraid of glass and sharp stones and can withstand even firearms shots, remaining on the move.

Paramount Marauder

The appearance of this army monster suggests the idea that it feeds on smaller vehicles. This is a mini-fortress on wheels. It easily accommodates two people in the front seats and eight more in the cabin. Moreover, it is commensurate with the average family. And there will still be room. This miracle is not cheap and costs half a million dollars. But for this money, you get excellent protection from grenades and improvised explosive devices from C4

Mercedes-Benz Unimog

This all-terrain truck at one time faced even predatory dinosaurs – however, it was only on blue screens in advertising. But in real life, the car certainly deserved all the respect. For example, two such SUVs set a world record by climbing to the top of the active volcano Ojos de Salado in Chile. As part of the expedition, they managed to visit a height of 6,893 meters above sea level – such peaks have never been climbed by wheeled vehicles.

We sincerely hope that the cars we’ve talked about above will remain only technical achievements, objects of discussion in noisy companies, and not objects of vital necessity. Stay safe!
