But you can’t just buy a Porsche or Mercedes because all of your neighbors drive those, and honestly they just can’t rock crawl the way you want. So what should you do? We’ve just the thing for you! Named the SRATS ELSORV for Specialized Reconnaissance Assault Transport System & Enhanced Logistical Support Off Road Vehicle, this truck can take you just about anywhere you would want to go while sporting the latest in tactical styling.

Available in an aircraft black or desert tan finish, this practical truck comes loaded with all the options you’ve come to expect from a modern family vehicle. Whether your afternoon drive leads you to the local country club or through an active war zone, you can be sure your passengers are traveling in comfort thanks to four luxurious cloth wrapped bucket seats and an overhead cooling and ventilation system. Additionally a customized turbo-diesel engine coupled to an Allison transmission provides plenty of power for every day driving activities like passing slow drivers, cruising at highway speeds, ascending a hill, or ramming through an enemy blockade on the way to the grocery store.

But while that’s all well and good, lets not forget that safety is key in today’s world. That’s why the ELSORV comes with a full range of standard safety features built with class leading technology. Instead of normal seatbelts, a full racing harness system was installed in every seat to keep your family secured while on the road and on the trail. You’ll also find that the manufacturer decided the side airbags found in many SUVs were inadequate for impact protection and opted instead for Armox steel plating from British Aerospace. This reinforced body allows you to enjoy your drive through the country with peace of mind, knowing that your family is simultaneously protected from fender benders and small arms fire up to 7.62×39 caliber.

If you are looking for a unique vehicle that is the epitome of tactical styling, off road luxury, and practical daily use, the SRATS ELSORV is the choice for you.
